Limbaugh on Omnibus: ‘Disband the Republican Party’

‘We don’t even need a Republican Party if they’re going to do all of this’

"The Republicans squandered that – they gave up the power of the purse.  And the reason they did that is for some inexplicable reason they are literally paranoid, scared to death of even being accused of doing something that would shut down the government. So to avoid even the accusation that they were going to or would even ever think of shutting down the government – they signaled whatever Obama wanted to spend, he would get because they figured that had less damage to them politically than the allegation that they were shutting down the government.

This is causing some people to wonder if they just dreamed all that stuff about Boehner resigning. And then other people are wondering if they dreamed all that stuff about Republicans winning the largest number of seats they’ve had in Congress since the Civil War. We had two midterm elections in 2010 and 2014, which were landslide victories for the Republican Party. The Democrat Party lost over a 1,000 seats nationwide in just those two elections. People went to polls in droves wanting exactly what was rubber stamped last night, or what will be, stopped. Instead, they showed up in record numbers and they turned out and they just defeated Democrats down the ballot.

In the process, they elected Republicans to stop this. And now the Republicans have the largest number of seats they’ve had in Congress since the Civil War. And it hasn’t made any difference at all. It is as though Rep. Nancy Pelosi is still running the House and Sen. Harry Reid is still running the Senate. Betrayed is not even the word here. What has happened here is worse than betrayal. Betrayal is pretty bad, but it is worse than that. This is out and out in our face lying from the campaigns to individual statements made about the philosophical approach – Republicans had to do all this spending. There is no Republican Party. We don’t even need a Republican Party if they’re going to do all of this. Just elect Democrats. Disband the Republican Party, let the Democrats run it because that’s what’s happening anyway.”
