McConnell Locked in Mitchness Protection Program When it’s Time to Fight

Mitch McConnell and other duplicitous Republicans will run to the nearest camera and pose next to the Obamacare tower of regulations.  They will tell you how terrible Obamacare is.  But they will never do anything consequential to actually force a confrontation over implementation, even when the public is squarely behind us.

Boehner and McConnell have consistently stymied efforts by conservatives to force a fight over defunding obamacare through the budget process or the debt ceiling.  Now, ahead of the October commencement of the Obamacare exchanges, we will have one more opportunity to fight Obamacare.

Who is leading the fight against funding Obamacare in the continuing budget  resolution?  Not the supposed GOP Leader.  It’s the three musketeers, of course – Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul.   Take a look at the names that signed onto their effort.  No Mitch McConnell to be seen.

Now, ultimately, he might sign on as a vacuous gesture when forced to do so, but it will be yet another example of following from behind instead of leading from the front.  Moreover, McConnell is actually preempting this effort by saying that he intends to abide by the budget plan from the 2011 debt ceiling deal.  If you remember that was the “McConnell Plan” that was cut with Joe Biden behind closed doors to hand Obama a $2.4 trillion free credit card passed the election.  All we got was the ridiculous sequestration, which failed to eliminate a single major agency and cut very little except for Defense.

Is this leadership?

    I am a Kentuckian who will proudly support Matt Bevin.

    It is time for conservatives to issue a writ of eviction on the incumbent.

    Matt Bevin for Senate!

    I’m glad to see a proven conservative take on Mitch. I’ve been wanting to see a serious challenger for several years, as Mitch is an example of what is wrong with the Republican Party. He and John Boehner have done nothing substantive to ward off Obama’s goals, and BOTH of them need to be replaced. Go Matt Bevin!!!

    Too many of the career politician and backslider varieties in DC today. I have decided it makes no difference which party you vote for when the candidate is trying to get re-elected. After one term they almost always have been assimilated into the statist mind set of accepting bribes and giving favors for those bribes. Always, it is the favors that harm the people and benfit very few.
