The (click here for the latest) three sewer RATZ sit in the Senate under a Republican banner, but for all intents and purposes, these three are part of the Republican lunatic fringe who carry water for the Democrats. McCain still has not gotten over his presidential defeat including Trump’s remark concerning his time in Viet Nam. Therefore he has held Trump hostage regarding the rollback of Obama Care. Susan Collins, listen to her for a moment, if you can, will cause you immediate pain. Murkowski, she should not be there. Ted Stevens was the Senior Senator until trumped up charges by Democratic partisans caused him to be arrested and convicted. These charges were later dismissed under appeal, but too late as he lost the Senate seat. Murkowski is now an Alaskan Senator because of that.
Republican wimps (RINOs) continue their lying to the American people. They gave lip service time and time again during their campaigns, but when the chips were down they went Yellow Pants. Lisa Murkowski (click here) our number one target, number two is Susan Collins (she is no Ms. America-click here), number three is John McCain(click here).
In the past, McCain has repeatedly called for the repeal of Obamacare. But when do or die came, he gave the thumb’s down in this deadly Game of Thrones. It may also be that he hates President Trump so much, he just wants to screw with his agenda. Whatever the reasoning was, it was treacherous. There were literally gasps from the Senate floor when he pulled this. Ted Cruz is right when he says there will be a reckoning and no party can remain in power by lying to those who gave them that power.
From Young Conservatives:
“From the beginning, I have believed that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced with a solution that increases competition, lowers costs, and improves care for the American people. The so-called ‘skinny repeal’ amendment the Senate voted on today would not accomplish those goals. While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens. The Speaker’s statement that the House would be ‘willing’ to go to conference does not ease my concern that this shell of a bill could be taken up and passed at any time.
“I’ve stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict-party line basis without a single Republican vote. We should not make the mistakes of the past that has led to Obamacare’s collapse, including in my home state of Arizona where premiums are skyrocketing and health care providers are fleeing the marketplace. We must now return to the correct way of legislating and send the bill back to committee, hold hearings, receive input from both sides of aisle, heed the recommendations of nation’s governors, and produce a bill that finally delivers affordable health care for the American people. We must do the hard work our citizens expect of us and deserve.”
Given, the so-called ‘Skinny Repeal’ was awful. But McCain didn’t vote for it because it did not offer a replacement. It shouldn’t have. The reason I didn’t like it was that it would still cause premiums to go up 20 percent. If they had just done Ted Cruz’s actual repeal, we wouldn’t be in this mess. But there are Republicans who want the pork it offers and the kickbacks from the insurance companies after they get their bailout. In other words, corruption.
For eight grueling years the Tea Party fought hard; down in the trenches we were bloodied, pilloried, stymied and most of all, we were called “DEPLORABLE.” But through it all we stood tall. And in the end we elected Donald J. Trump as our President. Gelding does not describe him, but bull does; taunt him and he will dig in for the fight. Too bad this can’t be said about most Republicans.
Take for example, the slow talker from Maine, Susan Collins, by the time she gets it out, twenty four hours have passed then we forget the question. Question: Why is she a Republican? We can’t adequately describe her political affliction, only to say that she and Maxine Waters ought to start a comedy routine.
The usual suspects include the likes of Mitch McConnell, a two faced politician if there ever was one. Then we look no further than Lindsey Graham. But there is more, those who care about their careers rather than their country. Rinos who pledged to defeat Obamacare, but when the going got tough they went Yellow Pants. Governors who were hoodwinked to a Siamese twin Obamacare state are guilty as charged; for them socialized healthcare is said and done. Ron Johnson, Chuck Grassley, Thad Cochran, Mark Kirk are members of the RINO herd. John McCain is also a franchised member; a maverick in his own right.
And the rest of the herd that voted for Loretta Lynch.
LORETTA LYNCH CONFIRMED WITH TEN REPUBLICAN VOTES
The Senate voted 56-43 this afternoon to confirm Loretta Lynch as Attorney General. Ten Republicans voted for confirmation: Kelly Ayotte (gone), Ron Johnson, Mark Kirk, Rob Portman, Thad Cochran, Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch and Mitch McConnell.
In 2018 those Gelded Republicans up for reelection must be taken to the slaughterhouse.

Washington (CNN)Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued his most definitive statement on Tuesday: There will be no Supreme Court nominee confirmed in President Barack Obama’s final year in office.
In a sharply worded statement on the Senate floor, McConnell bluntly warned the White House that the GOP-controlled Senate would not act on anyone he chooses to sit on the high court.
“Presidents have a right to nominate just as the Senate has its constitutional right to provide or withhold consent,” McConnell said. “In this case, the Senate will withhold it.”
Please listen to Susan Collins, a RINO air bag.
