Mitch McConnell and his RINO followers have demonstrated yet again why the Republican Party is routinely trounced by Democrats in Congress.
Senate Republicans are just not playing to win.
On Thursday, 14 Senate Republicans joined with Chuck Schumer’s Democrats in voting to advance a pair of pills needed to increase the radicalized Treasury Department’s borrowing authority by raising the debt ceiling.
A deal was brokered this week between McConnell and Schumer, to which McConnell agreed to hand over votes if it meant not one single Republican would be asked to vote on the final bill which actually raises the debt ceiling.
According to McConnell, this deal places any blame for absorbent spending beyond the federal government’s means solely on the left as they struggle to pass Joe Biden’s disastrous ‘Build Back Better’ legislation.
However, McConnell’s deal in fact makes the likelihood of passing ‘Build Back Better’ by Christmas even higher as the Democrats were struggling with massive infighting between the White House, Congressional leaders, and party centrists.
Now the Senate is poised to raise the federal government’s debt limit to $28.9 trillion – a staggering figure, especially in the midst of such wild inflation.
The Senate voted 64-36 to clear the way for passage of the bill setting up the fast-track procedure.
The 14 Senate Republicans who voted with Democrats against Donald Trump’s advice are:
- John Thune of South Dakota
- Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
- John Barrasso of Wyoming
- Roger Wicker of Mississippi
- Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
- Susan Collins of Maine
- Roy Blunt of Missouri
- Thom Tillis of North Carolina
- Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
- Richard Burr of North Carolina
- Joni Ernst of Iowa
- John Cornyn of Texas
- Mitt Romney of Utah
- Rob Portman of Ohio
Republicans have been trying to withhold their votes for more borrowing authority, contending the increase would smooth the way for passage of Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion green new deal, which they ostensibly oppose, but the McConnell-Schumer deal just cleared an open pathway for Senate Democrats.
Meanwhile, Former President Donald Trump warned “Old Crow” Mitch McConnell of the dire consequences of giving Democrats even an inch of wriggle room to pass ‘Build Back Better’ — and he’s absolutely correct.
What establishment Republicans (RINOs) fail to understand is the insidious way liberal politicians latch on, invade and usurp the exact moment you allow them to.
Much like a virus, the Democrats must be dealt with using only the heftiest of political aggression.
