In 2014, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s entire election campaign consisted of attacks on his opponent as a rubber-stamp for the “Obama-Reid” agenda. Every tweet and multiple attack ads warned that his opponent would do nothing but support the Obama agenda.
In 2015, under McConnell’s leadership, the GOP has… pretty much rubber-stamped the Obama agenda.
- Obamacare – Fully funded under the Republican-approved FY2015 Budget
- Obama’s agenda to succeed Eric Holder with an equally partisan hack Attorney General — Approved
- Obama’s Amnesty — Fully Funded by the Republican Majority in the Senate
- Obama’s unilateral trade negotiation authority — McConnell supports fully.
“A lot of folks like to joke about the odd couple that was Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch,” McConnell said, referring to the late Massachusetts Democrat and the Republican senator from Utah. “But I think Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama may have them outdone. I had to warn reporters not to faint last week before offering the president some praise on trade. I’m even getting handwritten notes from the president these days. He sent one the other day to thank me for supporting the nomination of Loretta Lynch.”
Tell me again why it matters which party we vote for?
