Ingraham: ‘We Have Two Parties that Agree on Too Much’

Talk-show host Laura Ingraham is not happy about the “cromnibus” spending bill that passed Congress this week — especially a new provision that would increase the limit on contributions to campaign spending:

You know what the problem is? We have two parties that agree with each other on too many issues. They agree on open borders, they agree on immigration amnesty, they agree on Common Core. And apparently, they agree that individuals should be able to give hundreds of thousands . . . to the political parties. I am not in favor of anything that makes it easier for the incumbency in Washington, D.C. And this cromnibus bill makes it easier for the incumbents and the establishment in both parties to run amok.

“Most of these people didn’t read this bill. Most of these people don’t know what’s in this bill. How is this good for the people?” Ingraham shrugged.
