GOP & Dem establishments have their CRomnibus

Unshockingly, the newly elected GOP Establishment immediately ignores the mandate that was just granted to them...

First, Boehner gave up the ghost in the House Thursday night...
Twitchy: The House passed the $1.1 trillion “cromnibus” spending bill Thursday night by a close vote of 219-206. Lawmakers and the public were kept in suspense as leaders lobbied hard for votes up until the last minute.

Congress eventually found the time to vote, ending “fears” of another government shutdown.

“Boehner and White House win” — even saying it out loud sounds strange, and wrong.

TPNN: Conservative radio talk show host and author Laura Ingraham issued sharp criticism to Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner on Thursday, saying that the Continuing Resolution Omnibus, or what has simply become know as “cromnibus,” is a 1,600 page joke.”

The bill, which barely passed the House of Representatives, barely passed Thursday night, the deadline for avoiding a partial government shutdown, by an ultra slim margin of 210 – 206, with 67 conservative Republicans voting against the $1.1 trillion stop-gap measure.

There were 57 Democrats that voted with their big government Republican brethren for the increase in overall spending that fully funds Obama’s illegal amnesty as well as the hated Obamacare disaster.

Ingraham delivered a stinging blow to Boehner, comparing him despised communist Democrat Nancy Pelosi, playing her infamous words, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it,” as the 1,600 page behemoth was presented and voted upon before any members could have possibly had time to read it.

Ingraham highlighted Boehner’s hypocrisy, pointing out that he was highly critical of the 1,100 page Obama Stimulus bill in 2009, which “not one member of this body has read.”

Upon being launched into his speakership in 2010, largely because of the pro-liberty, pro-Constitution Tea Party movement, the formerly conservative Boehner promised a 72-hour window for members to read bills, a pledge he has broken.
...then came McConnell and his Senate cowards Saturday evening. America continues to hemorrhage, no thanks to go-along Republicans...
RedState: The next time anyone tells you the GOP Senate leadership opposes either Obamacare or Obama’s egregious power grab you can laugh in their face. The CRomnibus bill passed because the majority of the GOP went along with it. Indeed, most of the GOP leadership was more interested in making utterly bull**** allegations against Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and keeping the pork moving than in doing their duty and opposing unconstitutional actions and executive overreach.

More hard times ahead for America and her citizenry as the administrative state expands under a coalesced incumbency among the D.C. Establishment.

Remember the names, and attempt to choose wisely over the next several years. Your children and your country will depend on it.

ADDENDUM: The exquisite hypocrisy of 20 Republican Senators...
ConservativeHQ: One of the reasons our friend Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) gets under the skin of his Republican colleagues is that, unlike them, he actually votes the way he talks. If he’s against some policy of President Obama’s, like say an unconstitutional attempt to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, he votes NO and does all he can to stop it.

This annoys his hypocritical Senate Republican colleagues who prefer to campaign like conservatives at home while voting with President Obama when they are in Washington.

After 20 Republicans opposed Cruz’s point of order declaring the “CRomnibus” to be unconstitutional our principled conservative compatriots at Heritage Action compiled a list of “what they said then” on amnesty versus how they voted...
