Republican Senate Health Care Collapse a Blow to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell … If You Can’t Get It Done, Step Down
MCCONNELL, ITS TIME FOR YOU TO LEAVE, NOW!!!
The Republican health care failure in the U.S. Senate is not only a blow to GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, it is a greater disappointment to the American people who have been lied to. For seven years Republicans, and the American people have been told, if you give us the House, give us the Senate and give us the Presidency, we will repeal Obamacare. Over the past 7 years, Republicans, Independents and even Democrats have given power back to the GOP in the House, Senate and in 2016, elected Donald J. Trump the president of the United States. Now we have a GOP majority in the Senate who has lost their nerve and obvious lied to We the People. The colossal collapse of the Senate health care bill is not a blow to McConnell, its an embarrassment to the GOP party. What the F#ck have you people been doing for the past 7 years? You were put in office and many GOP senators ran and were elected on the promise to repeal Obamacare. Now it is time to fulfill your promise. President Trump expressed his disappointment; however, I will go even further. The GOP Senate had no problem passing bills that repealed Obamacare when they knew they had no chance of being signed by Barack Obama. Now, suddenly when Donald Trump is president and will sign such a bill into law, the establishment GOP Senators have become gutless. Mitch McConnell, you need to step down and allow new leadership to take over that can get things done. Retire and go home!
More pathetic establishment GOP leadership
The failure of Obamacare repeal marks Mitch McConnell’s lowest point as Senate GOP leader.
Despite having a Republican in the White House, full GOP control of Congress and seven years of campaign promises — “pulling out Obamacare root and branch,” as the Kentucky Republican famously declared — McConnell acknowledged this week that he didn’t have the votes to even start debate on replacing the 2010 Affordable Care Act.
It’s a serious defeat for McConnell, and one that leaves deep bitterness among rank-and-file GOP senators, as moderates and conservatives blamed each other over who is at fault for the setback.
It’s also a blow to McConnell’s reputation as a master legislator and raises doubts in the White House about what Senate Republicans can actually deliver for President Donald Trump. McConnell, like Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), finds himself caught between the factions in his own party. And like Ryan, McConnell hasn’t demonstrated that he knows how to resolve the dispute.
The draining of the swamp also includes establishment Republicans and RINO’s. It is bad enough that your healthcare bill is BS, based on a retooling of Obamacare, not its repeal .. but you gutless bastards can’t even pass that after 7 years. One would have thought that you would have been discussing such things, not going on vacation, writing books, and getting all those great Senate perks. Trust me GOP … come 2018, this is a warning to the ObamaCare Republicans, the Voters will repeal and replace the Senators who broke their promise. That goes for you folks in the House too. Prepare to be primary challenged!!! In 2018, its time to go RINO hunting and rid the party of those who don’t even believe in the Republican platform. Take your party back and show these clowns, that lying to get elected will not be tolerated.
RINO Sen. Kelly Ayotte Bites the Political Dust in New Hampshire … Concedes to Democrat Maggie Hassan
GONE GIRL, RINO CONCEDES IN NEW HAMPSHIRE…
Incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte has conceded the New Hampshire senate election to Democrat Maggie Hassan Wednesday evening. In the end, she lost the vote by a little of a thousand votes, but declined to have a recount. The GOP lost two seats in the past 2016 elections, having had to defend many seats. Many pundits predicted the Republicans would lose control of the Senate in this past election cycle, they got that wrong too. The GOP remains in control of the U.S. Senate 52-48.
GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte conceded to Democrat Maggie Hassan Wednesday evening, declining to pursue a recount in the nation’s closest Senate race and tipping a second seat to Democrats after Tuesday’s election.
Hassan led Ayotte by just 1,019 votes out of more than 738,000 cast, according to the secretary of state’s official tally. The margin was well within the limits for a recount, but Ayotte conceded to Hassan a day after the polls closed.
“I just spoke with Governor Hassan to congratulate her on her election to serve in the U.S. Senate,” Ayotte said in a statement. “I wish Governor Hassan, her husband Tom, and their children Ben and Meg the very best.”
Hassan was one of Senate Democrats’ most prized recruits this year, and Democrats needed every bit of the sitting governor’s popularity to take on Ayotte, who also remained more liked than not by New Hampshire voters throughout the campaign. Both Senate nominees picked up thousands more votes than the two major-party presidential candidates did in the state.
Ayotte’s defeat knocks a rising Republican star — and one of the party’s most prominent women — out of the ranks of GOP elected officials, while adding another female Democratic senator in a key state.
RINO & Failed GOP Establishement Presidential Candidate John McCain Says, ‘I don’t know’ if Donald Trump will be better for Supreme Court than Hillary Clinton
I GUESS THIS IS MCCAIN’S IDEA OF BEING MAVERICKY …
UNBELIEVABLE … Sen. John McCain (Rino-AZ) says in an interview that he does not know whether Donald Trump will be better in nominating justices to the US Supreme Court than Hillary Clinton. Seriously? If McCain a so-called Republican, does not know whether the GOP candidate for President would or would not be better in selecting possible justices to the SCOTUS over a bed-wetting liberal and proven liar like Hillary Clinton, maybe its time for him to retire. If you ever wondered what happened to the Republican party, look no further than “mavericky” GOP Senator John McCain.
What a bunch of crap coming from the RINO and former failed establishment Republican presidential candidate. This fools answer is to block Hillary Clinton’s SCOTUS nominees, yet in the same breath he is saying that he does not know if Trump would be any better? As stated at Hot Air, this is the one subject we know that all Republicans can agree with when it comes to The Donald. Trump has already released a list of 20 potential SCOTUS nominees and none would be questioned by Republicans. Sadly, this is what has gone wrong with the Republican party, establishment candidates need to be flushed out and replaced with those that actually care about the country and not their own political power.
Trump has released lists of 21 potential justices. He has pledged to choose from among those 21 when making Supreme Court selections, in a move that has earned him praise from conservatives, including his former rival in the Republican primary, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Asked on the Dom Giordano program on 1210 WPHT Philadelphia radio whether Trump was the superior candidate on issues like the Supreme Court, the Arizona senator replied, “Uh, first of all, I don’t know, because I hear him saying a lot of different things.”
Later in the interview, McCain used the opportunity to make the case for fellow Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, who is locked in a close battle to retain his Senate seat in Pennsylvania. McCain promised that Republicans would be “united against any Supreme Court nominee” put forth by Clinton.
“I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up,” McCain said. “I promise you. This is where we need the majority and Pat Toomey is probably as articulate and effective on the floor of the Senate as anyone I have encountered.”
This is exactly the kind of Republican establishment BS that Americans have grown sick and tired of. Really, the gutless and spineless establishment Republicans like McCain are going to unite and block a Hillary Clinton SCOTUS nominee? No you are not. The GOP was given control of the House to stop Obamacare, they did nothing. The GOP was given control of the Senate to repeal Obamacare and balance the budget, they did nothing. What makes any Republican think these gutless wonders would stand up to Hillary Clinton?
HEY MITTENS … MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE TAKEN YOUR OWN ADVICE AGAINST OBAMA …
It is rather comical when the establishment GOP blames others for what they themselves have caused. Mitt Romney, the failed, gutless, Republican presidential candidate who lost to a weak and wounded Barack Obama in 2012 now wants to blame others for the rise of Donald Trump. REALLY? Who the hell would take advice or even listen to a guy who lost to Obama because he did not take the gloves off and attack him. Instead Romney put on the mittens. A note to Romney and the mushy middle of the GOP … you are responsible for OBAMA!!!
Sorry if I don’t take advice or scorn from a man who lost a presidential race to a wounded and defeatable Obama. Dude, you lost your race, now shut up and go away. You are just as much to blame for the rise of Trump as anyone. Quit your whining and support Trump, unless you want Hillary as president.
Mitt Romney laid into the large and rambunctious group of 2016 Republican candidates here on Saturday, arguing that they deserved a share of blame for the rise of Donald Trump.
During a question-and-answer session with CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer before around 250 Republican donors gathered here for the Romney-hosted Experts and Enthusiasts summit, the former Massachusetts governor said this year’s group of primary candidates misplayed their hand. By spending months attacking each other and ignoring Trump, he argued, they made a severe tactical error that allowed Trump — who Romney has criticized as a “con man” and a “fraud” — to escape unharmed.
“Their biggest failure was attacking each other and not the frontrunner,” Romney said. “Just politically, I thought that move was not right for them.”
Romney reserved particular scorn for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who Romney endorsed late in the primary process. The Texas senator, he pointed out, spent extensive time during the campaign praising Trump. He also said Ohio Gov. John Kasich had divided the anti-Trump vote by remaining in the race long after it had become clear he didn’t have a realistic pathway to the nomination — a message he said had relayed personally to the Ohio governor. And Romney chided Right to Rise, the $100 million-plus Jeb Bush super PAC that spent heavily to tear down Bush rivals other than Trump.
“I thought it was an extremely large mistake on their part,” he said of Right to Rise
RINO Maine Senator Susan Collins Says She Might Support Hillary Clinton … Really You Would Support Someone Who Broke Federal Law?
EVER WANNA KNOW WHY THEY CALL THEM RINO’S …
Have you ever wondered why it seems the Republican party does don’t stand up to Democrats and Barack Obama? Have you ever wondered why the GOP party does not seem to represent you nor the Republican party platform? Look no further than the liberal Republicans in the party like Sen. Susan Collins from Maine who stated she would not ruling out supporting Hillary Clinton. UNREAL. Welcome to the RINO’s that have destroyed the GOP. Who the hell in their right mind could call themselves a Republican and then state, I want to continue another 4 more years of Obama, 4 more years of this pathetic economy, 4 more years of increasing the debt to out of control numbers? What Republican would allow a lib like Hillary Clinton select 2, maybe even 3 Supreme Court Justices? Are you frigging nuts Se. Collins? Do us a favor, just change parties or retire. Oh and by the way, are the comments that Trump made about a La Raza (The Race) judge really worse than the actions Hillary Clinton took as Sec. of State and her private email server when she broke federal laws, Federal Records Act (18 U.S. Code § 2071)?
But no matter how much they have condemned Trump, none of these high-ranking Republicans have said that they would consider supporting his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with me, on Wednesday, Senator Susan Collins, of Maine, made herself the exception. Collins told me that Trump’s comment about Curiel was “an order of magnitude more serious” than anything he had previously said, including his “troubling insults towards individuals” and “his poorly-thought-out policy plan about banning Muslims from entering this country.”
She added that she was faced with an unprecedented political decision and had to keep all options open. “This is a difficult choice, and it’s one, like many of my colleagues, that I am struggling with,” Collins said. “It’s not like we have perfect candidates from whom to choose in this election.”
Collins went on to say that she has not ruled out supporting Clinton. “I worked very well with Hillary when she was my colleague in the Senate and when she was Secretary of State,” Collins said. “But I do not anticipate voting for her this fall. I’m not going to say never, because this has been such an unpredictable situation, to say the least.”
