Mike Lee: "No Defense" For What GOP Allowed In Omnibus Package

Senator Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah, recently stopped by Fox Business Network. While there, he appeared on an episode of "Kudlow."

He had something SERIOUS to tell America, and once he had just the platform to do it, he let fly:

Many Republicans should be ASHAMED of themselves.

By approving this bill, or not at least fighting to cut the fat out of it, these Republicans sold out America.

There were a few that were fighting for justice. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky were two that were named specifically by host Larry Kudlow:

"Sen. Johnson tried to strip out earmarks. His amendment was defeated. And then Sen. Rand Paul tried to reimpose the spending caps, which would have triggered automatic spending cuts. What can you tell us about those two votes? Because that’s sound budget policy, both of them wanted sound budget policy, and a lot of Republicans deserted them."

You may think that Larry was being a bit harsh, until you hear Lee confirm that Kudlow had it exactly correct:

"No, that’s exactly right. And that’s why when you hear Republicans talk about fiscal responsibility, about fiscal conservatism, you need to look at how they actually vote because there is no defense you can make for opposing those amendments, especially if you’re a Republican. Because all they’re doing is trying to restore some fiscal sanity to a country that is — we’re bringing in, as a government, about $4 trillion a year and spending about $6 trillion a year. $2 trillion annual deficits are indefensible, they are unsustainable. And we can’t do this anymore. So, it’s beyond my ability to understand why Republicans in particular would help defeat these things and then still propel the bill forward toward passage once the amendments failed."
