Fiery Ingraham: GOP Will Have 'Hell to Pay' as Dems Claim Victory on Spending
Laura Ingraham said this morning there will be "hell to pay" for Republicans for the $1 trillion spending package that is seen as a win for Democrats.
She started on "Fox & Friends" by holding up today's Washington Post, pointing out the headline: "Democrats claim win on spending."
Ingraham said it's not "spin" from the left and that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are celebrating this outcome. She said that's because the Republican Party "cannot get its act together" and agree on basic issues which the president campaigned on.
She pointed out that the bill funds Planned Parenthood, protections for refugees and H-2B visas for low-skilled workers, but doesn't fund the border wall.
"I find this to be so demoralizing [and] disappointing. I think they're gonna have hell to pay for this budget," said Ingraham, doubting that Republicans will bring spending under control in the fall.
"2018 is midterm elections. They're gonna be brave right before the election?" she asked.
Ingraham said House Speaker Paul Ryan is not "putting points on the board," questioning whether new leadership is needed.
"I'm not saying it's easy, but when you have the House, the Senate and the presidency this should not be the end result," she concluded.
Charles Krauthammer said last night that President Trump and Republicans "got rolled" on the five-month spending bill negotiation.
"There's no denying the fact that this was not a win," he said. "This is a total loss."
Watch the discussion above and hear more from Laura tonight on "Hannity" at 10pm ET.
