Mitch McConnell Funds Obamacare

The True Patron Saint of the Republican Party.
If you transported GOP Senators and Congressmen back in time to 1933 they would be considered radical Leftist New Deal Democrats.  The fact of the matter is the "Conservative" Republicans of today eagerly vote to create, fund and defend every possible Leftist Wet-Dream Program ever thought of by FDR, Harry Truman, LBJ or Obama.

Mitch McConnell Votes to Fund Obamacare
  • How is that "small government" Conservatism working out for you?

The U.S. does not have a two party system.  There exists only one Liberal Big Government Party with two different wings holding different views on a few selected social issues.

Both wings of the Big Government Party agree that spending will always increase and the unconstitutional centralization of power in Washington will continue.  The only argument is the degree of growth:   3.4% increase under Ryan or 5% under Obama.

Proving the case, now Red State reports Mitch McConnell said at CPAC “Obamacare should be repealed root and branch. And we’re not backing down from this fight.”

And the same speech where Mitch McConnell also said, “This law is a disaster, and anybody who thinks we’ve moved beyond it is dead wrong.”

Well Mitch McConnell excels at saying one thing and doing another. Yesterday, Mitch McConnell voted to fund Obamacare.

Hey Utah, he joined Orrin Hatch in doing so. Remember, just last year on the campaign trail Orrin Hatch told you all how he was going to absolutely fight to rid us of Obamacare at all costs. And he got a large portion of the conservative movement to cheer him on as a result.

Yeah, that Orrin Hatch voted to fund Obamacare too.

And now for the punchline — the majority of the Republicans in the Senate voted against funding Obamacare. McConnell and Hatch were in the minority of Republicans who chose to side with the Democrats and fund Obamacare.

Here is the full list of the Republicans who voted for the Ted Cruz amendment to defund Obamacare, but then flipped their votes to actually vote to fund Obamacare:
  • Alexander (R-TN)
  • Barrasso (R-WY)
  • Blunt (R-MO)
  • Boozman (R-AR)
  • Chambliss (R-GA)
  • Coats (R-IN)
  • Cochran (R-MS)
  • Collins (R-ME)
  • Corker (R-TN)
  • Cornyn (R-TX)
  • Hatch (R-UT)
  • Hoeven (R-ND)
  • Isakson (R-GA)
  • Johanns (R-NE)
  • McConnell (R-KY)
  • Murkowski (R-AK)
  • Sessions (R-AL)
  • Shelby (R-AL)
  • Thune (R-SD)
  • Wicker (R-MS)
