Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Friday that Republican leadership will not convince him the omnibus spending bill — which passed a House vote on Friday — is a good deal, when so many “Democrats are gloating” over its passage.
Limbaugh noted that on Friday, “Democratic leaders held a press conference to gloat about the passage of the budget deal,” before playing comments made by Sen. [crscore]Chuck Schumer[/crscore]. (RELATED: House Passes Massive Year-End Spending Bill)
“If you would have told me this year that we’d be standing here celebrating the passage of an omnibus bill,” Schumer claimed. “I wouldn’t have believed it, but here we are.”
“And we got more than we asked for?” Limbaugh asked in response. “This bill is a great victory for the principles of the Democratic Party, and we’ve got Republican establishment types telling me that I am misreading this?”
