Repeat after me… (UPDATED)

I couldn't resist...


Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.


This is just another example, among many others, of why the GOP is dead.

Hey, remember that awesome CPAC speech by Mitch McConnell?

The one where Mitch McConnell said — and I quote — “Obamacare should be repealed root and branch.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, as I told you, 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) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Barrasso (R-WY) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Blunt (R-MO) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Boozman (R-AR) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Chambliss (R-GA) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Coats (R-IN) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Cochran (R-MS) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Collins (R-ME) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Corker (R-TN) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Cornyn (R-TX) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Hatch (R-UT) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Hoeven (R-ND) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Isakson (R-GA) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Johanns (R-NE) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • McConnell (R-KY) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Murkowski (R-AK) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Sessions (R-AL) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Shelby (R-AL) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Thune (R-SD) - [NO balls. NO principles.]
  • Wicker (R-MS) - [NO balls. NO principles.]

    You could actually say that these are all the card-carrying 'REC' members of the 'Republican Establishment Club'. These idiots are the ones who prize ego and control over principles. Everyone one of them only give 'lip service' just to get elected in their areas, then they do as they please. Everyone one of them should be targeted for defeat in the primaries.

    People like McConnell and Hatch are operators who are in it for show but mostly for gain--personal gain.

    One good thing to note. Not one of these is a Club for Growth person. Please notice that and please if you have any money, give it to the Club because that is where we are going to get more Cruz's, Rubio's. Lee's Toomey's, Johnson's, and Scott's.
