With news Wednesday that the U.S. Senate would move forward with a vote to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling -- not even to be blocked by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) -- conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh slammed Congressional Republicans for what he called a lack of "any opposition" to Democrats.

"I was trying to think earlier today if ever in my life I could remember any political -- any major political party -- being so irrelevant. I have never seen it," Limbaugh said on his show. "I have never seen a major political party simply occupy placeholders as the Republican Party is doing. There hasn't been any opposition. Not any serious opposition. There may have been votes against this or that. ... But in terms of a policy-oriented, a package of policies, a package of principle beliefs, of opposition expressed daily by party leaders against what's happening in this country, there hasn't been."

Until Wednesday, Cruz was a leading voice in opposing reopening the government without concessions from Democrats to defund or delay "Obamacare."
