Chaffetz: Republicans ‘Put a Torch to the Mantle of Fiscal Discipline’

‘They should be doing a parade for Chuck Schumer because he took them to the cleaners’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CHAFFETZ: "They blew up — they put a torch to the mantle of fiscal discipline. That is long gone. You know, there’s been a lot of talk about a parade around here. They should be doing a parade for Chuck Schumer because he took them to the cleaners. I mean he really did. Listen, he got every spending priority that he wanted. Nothing was cut. If took reconciliation, the most powerful tool that the Republicans had, off the table. And it’s just unbelievable to me that we were spending this much money. Nobody campaigned on that. And there is going to be a political price taken, particularly in the primaries."
