Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might as well also call himself the Democrat Minority Leader too given his penchant for behind-the-scenes machinations to save much of what is a failed Obamacare boondoggle. McConnell’s reasons are quite simple – his desire to maintain power. He and other Establishment Republicans fear a media backlash should they move forward with a full repeal and replace of Obamacare. That fear is a sad and undeniable testament to just how cowardly self-serving the Republican Party leadership truly are.
This latest report from CNBC confirms the growing belief among many within the party that McConnell’s allegiance lies firmly with himself, his Establishment cohorts, and NOT the American people:
…A bill focused on buttressing the nation’s insurance marketplaces will be needed if the full fledged Republican effort to repeal much of President Barack Obama‘s health care law fails, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday. It was one of his most explicit acknowledgments that his party’s top-priority drive to erase much of Obama’s landmark 2010 statutes might fall short.
What McConnell is now signaling is an effort to actually SAVE much of Obamacare.
More than a few believe that has been his intention all along.
There is no difference between Democrat and Republican.
The only difference is that between those who wish to put American first and those who do not.
