On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Tuesday, host Mark Levin called out Republicans for “spending like drunken Marxists” and for “funding ever leftwing program and project imaginable” even after Americans gave the GOP the House, the Senate and the presidency.

“Do you know, today as I speak, your Republican Congress is about to pass a omnibus – and it’s ominous, really – but an omnibus spending bill that is a monster bill?” asked Mark Levin about the Republicans and their profligate spending in Washington D.C. “It is a massive spending bill. It’s going to drive up the deficit this year and drive up the debt. And they’re funding every leftwing program and project imaginable.”

Levin’s comments came as numerous outlets have reported on the run-up to the GOP’s massive omnibus spending bill this week, Levin listing the reports as follows: “Politico: ‘Congress closes in on massive spending bill,’ Axios: ‘Congress considers a monster spending bill,’ Washington Examiner: ‘Repubicans propose billions in new Obamacare funding,’ Conservative Review [actually published by The Hill]: ‘Conservatives fear being steamrolled by Dem[ocrats] on funding bill.’

Below is a transcript of Levin’s remarks from his show Tuesday:

“Do you know, today as I speak, your Republican Congress is about to pass a omnibus – and it’s ominous, really – but an omnibus spending bill that is a monster bill? It is a massive spending bill. It’s going to drive up the deficit this year and drive up the debt. And they’re funding every leftwing program and project imaginable.

“And I think to myself, ‘Can this ever end? Can it even be slowed? They’re not funding the wall.’

“Yet, the Koch brothers, they made an announcement that Trump should cut his deal with the Democrats, get a little bit on the wall and get your amnesty through – the Koch brothers.

“How do we combat all of this?

 

“Politico: ‘Congress closes in on massive spending bill,’ Axios: ‘Congress considers a monster spending bill,’ Washington Examiner: ‘Repubicans propose billions in new Obamacare funding,’ Conservative Review [actually published by The Hill]: ‘Conservatives fear being steamrolled by Dem[ocrats] on funding bill,’ and then we have this – NBC News: ‘Democrats hold double-digit lead for 2018 midterm elections.’

“The Republicans should be legislating like hell to advance the cause of Republicanism. They are called Republicans after all, aren’t they?

“Maybe we should call them the toadies – toadyism.

“We give ‘em the House, we give ‘em the Senate, we give ‘em the presidency, and they spend like drunken Marxists.”
