In an interview published Friday, former Republican Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska sharply criticized members of Congress for voting for the $1.1 trillion “CROmnibus” bill that funds most of the government through September, saying the measure “stinks to high heaven.”
Palin told Breitbart News that “It was tough going up against Obama’s lapdogs in the media and the power liberals have to play their politics of personal destruction against common sense conservatives.” The bill, which passed in the House 219-206, is expected to be taken up by the Senate late Friday.
“It stinks to high heaven. Did arrogant politicians not get the memo that Obama’s agenda was decisively defeated in last month’s historic midterm landslide? Good Lord, America said loud and clear not just ‘no’ but ‘hell no’ to Obama’s failed policies. Americans who pay attention said absolutely no to Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens.
She continued: “It’s baffling really. The Republican leadership in the House just flipped American voters the bird by sidelining the new Congress we just elected.”
“I want the names of all 162 yahoos who would squander the opportunity to respect the will of the people and get America on the right track. Please print their names so we can ask them, ‘What the heck are you thinking?!’”
“And thank you to the 67 House Republicans who did vote no. Let’s remind everyone of their names also,” Palin added. The former Alaska Governor, or anyone else reading at the time, can find the entire roll of who voted for the bill and how here.
As a result of the bill’s passage through the lower chamber, Palin also called for Speaker Boehner to be replaced in January. “It’s time for new energy and steel-spined commitment to stop Obama’s bizarre behavior against this country!” she said.
“Surely there are more of us than not who know that our Founders’ memory, our vets, and our children deserve better than what we’re underneath today. Keep the faith that there more of us than there are of them who think broken campaign promises are just dandy.”
