“When Reagan became president, he had all these big-government Republicans. There are zero today,” Russo told The Hill.
“[Maine Sen.] Susan Collins isn’t a big-government Republican; I’ve known Susan Collins [for decades], she’s not a big-government Republican. [Illinois Sen.] Mark Kirk isn’t a big-government Republican,” The Hill reports Russo as saying.
Veteran Tea Party activists from around the country, many of whom helped start the movement before Russo jumped on board, ridiculed his “zero big-government Republicans today” claim.
