I have often said and written that there are two political parties in America, Big Government Party #1 and Big Government Party #2.
There is one party who is honest enough to admit that they are for big, bloated, and largely unconstitutional government. Then, there is another party, whose politicians campaign as conservatives in order to get elected, but once elected, vote precisely like the Democrats they promised to oppose.
Below are the 27 RINOs in the U.S. Senate who voted to blow the lid off the debt (Marco Rubio did NOT vote), funding illegal and unconstitutionally sanctuary cities, funding Obama’s illegal amnesty and Muslim Syrian invasion, funding Obamacare, funding Planned Butcherhood.
Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, a constitutional conservative, made the following statement after the bloated bill, a bill Rush Limbaugh called a “Democrat wet dream.”
“What we’ve seen in Congress today is profoundly disappointing. This spending bill does not honor the promises we made to the men and women who elected us. It funds Obamacare. It funds Planned Parenthood. It funds executive amnesty. It fails to protect our national security and stop Syrian refugees from coming to this country. It fails to do anything to stop the Iranian Nuclear Deal. And what does it do? It jacks up yet more low-skilled immigration, which will only drag down wages, kill American jobs, and hurt working men and women.
“This bill is the big-government agenda of Democrats that effectively forfeits our massive Republican victories of 2014 and cements Obama’s priorities for nearly the full remainder of his term. This is the Washington Cartel in action, and it’s precisely why the American people from coast-to-coast are so volcanically frustrated.”
Here are the 27 RINO traitors who voted for the 2009-page, $1.1 trillion Ryan-Obama Omnibus spending bill, furthering the elimination of the congressional power of the purse, effectively giving that power, willingly, to wannabe dictator Barack Obama.

So “Obama’s Mitch” McConnell and his cabal of establishment RINO traitors joined with the likes of Harry Reid, Patty Murray, Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer in supporting the Omnibus.
Speaking of Chuck Schumer (COMMIE-NY), he glowed and gloated in amazement at being a member of the minority party and being able to accomplish so much destruction, exactly the same as if Democrats were still in the majority:
“If you have told me — this year — that we’d be standing here, celebrating the passage of an Omnibus bill, with no poison pill riders, at higher levels above sequester than even the president requested, I wouldn’t have believed it.
But here we are. This bill is a great victory for the principles Democrats stand for.”
As sad as it sounds, Schumer is right. The results we are seeing in the U.S. House and Senate are exactly the same — maybe even worse — than if Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were still in charge.
