With two weeks of Congress’ August recess already cancelled due to his inability to pass the fake-repeal of Obamacare, Mitch McConnell is proceeding with his plan to hold a vote on the so-called “Better Care Reconciliation act” even though he appears to lack the votes necessary to pass the bill.
One of the reasons McConnell can’t get the votes necessary is because he isn’t really trying to pass Obamacare, instead choosing to team up with progressives in both parties to “fix” the Affordable Care Act. For example, recent variations of the GOP’s fake-repeal include: codifying taxpayer funding of private insurance purchases, keeping the “redistributing the wealth” Obamacare taxes on the rich to pay for the out-of-control growth of Medicaid, and keeping the individual mandate.
So, if McConnell knows he lacks the votes necessary to pass this pile of bovine fecal matter, why is he proceeding? Because Obamacare repeal is a false flag. Micky only cares about keeping his RINO buddies and himself in power. And just as it has been over the past few elections, McConnell sees conservatives as a roadblock standing in the way of his RINO Utopia, and he hates them for it.
McConnell plans to use conservatives as a scapegoat to take the blame for his deceptive and pathetic leadership, and he will leverage their objections to the fake-repeal of Obamacare to lay the groundwork for attacking them in the 2018 mid-term elections.
By the way, for the worshipers of all things Trump, Donnie will likely be standing shoulder-to-shoulder with McConnell attacking conservatives for being “obstructionists.” He did that very thing against the Freedom Caucus when they threatened the House version of fake repeal.
Regardless of what you call them now—Trumplican or Republicrats—the GOP has been destroyed by Trump, McConnell, and Ryan. Conservatives need to leave the Republican party and find a new home before it’s too late.
Perhaps that home can be found in the new Federalist Party.
