McConnell-Reid Deal Raises Debt and Funds Obamacare Without Any Reforms

“…Senate Leadership, led by Mitch McConnell, knows nothing but capitulation.”

 Washington, D.C. – The Madison Project PAC released the following statement today regarding news that the Senate reached a deal to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling without cutting one penny from Obamacare or offering a single reform to its failing structure:

“Today’s deal shows once again that the Senate Leadership, led by Mitch McConnell, knows nothing but capitulation,” said Drew Ryun of Madison Project.  “Rather than working to dismantle the monstrosity that is Obamacare, Senate Republicans chose to hand Harry Reid and the Democrat party a victory at the expense of hard-working Americans. This is unacceptable. Our nations’ true conservative leaders, Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and others – took a stand for freedom and did everything possible in their power to prevent an outcome like this. For that, we applaud them. While some may be discouraged by this outcome, we are encouraged by the thought of adding more Senators like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to the GOP caucus in 2014.  We will also continue the battle against Obamacare until the American people are given the same relief as Obama’s special interests.”

“What has become apparent from this battle is that we cannot fight Obamacare and other deleterious political ploys with only a handful of committed conservatives,” said Daniel Horowitz of Madison Project.  “Democrats will never have any incentive to change their ways when a sizable portion of Republican senators are cheering them on.  This effort was sabotaged from day one, with a brave few left fighting with a knife in their backs.  We are committed to sending them reinforcements, and based on the reaction we are receiving from the heart and soul of the Republican grassroots, the career politicians are in for a surprise.”

The Madison Project supports and raises money for conservative candidates that have demonstrated a commitment to full-spectrum conservatism. The Madison Project website can be found at
