The RINO's, IMHO are equally to blame for not getting rid of several spending measures not the least of which is gutting our military with a crazy Putin on the loose. That, and the 'pole dancing' that the RINO's are fond of doing - pole dancing is when a politician forget s who voted for him/her and decides to make all of their policies (and forget their principles in the process) based on how events are "poling". One glaring example was during the government shut-down when the RINO's had the Dems by the short-hairs and then suddenly saw the poles and capitulated to the Dems on the budget... again. This is why the Dems like the RINO's even if they're not publically admitting as much, and they're with the RINO's in lock step with their disparaging of the Tea Party. The RINO's and the Dems are one and the same.
