McConnellcare Ist Kaput! The Votes Aren’t There And If He Tries To Enlist Democrat Votes, He Risks Getting Das Boot
By Dave Levine
I’ve never liked “The Turtle” McConnell. He’s pure RINO, a 100% Chamber shill who hates Conservatives. Senator Cruz called him a liar. That’s not all McConnell is.
Forgetting what he is for the moment, the bottom line IS: McConnellcare is dead!
There are only 3 Conservatives and 1 libertarian in the Senate. They aren’t going to get a full repeal. They know that BUT THEY CAN STOP A MCCONNEL-SCHUMER DEAL! That’s because any move that McConnell makes to work with the Democrats will require a 60-vote margin and the Republicans only have 52 with at least 5 against the current bill. An Obamacare-lite McConnell-Schumer bill isn’t going to get 60 votes unless Schumer can get a large number of Dems to go along with it. But in doing so, McConnell will have abdicated his leadership position and will be jettisoned.
Moreover, a move like this (working with Democrats to pass another version of Obamacare) will cost the GOP the Senate next year. Conservative voters are like elephants–they don’t forget!
My message to McConnell is “Make our day!”
