Senator Mitch McConnell said people are upset about the Senate’s lack of accomplishments because President Trump doesn’t understand how things work in Washington and expects too much.
“Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before,” said McConnell. “I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process.”
It isn’t unreasonable to expect Republicans to keep their promises and McConnell’s excuse is yet another example of why he should be replaced as the Republican leader.
President Trump is not the one who is responsible for creating the expectations that Republicans have failed to meet.
It was Mitch McConnell who promised action on many issues if only the voters would give Republicans unified control.
It was Mitch McConnell who spent seven years promising to repeal Obamacare “root and branch.”
And it was Mitch McConnell who outlined a plan back in January that promised Obamacare repeal by early April, border wall funding by the end of April, and tax reform by August.
Yet it’s now the second week of August, none of these things have been done, and Mitch McConnell is making excuses and blaming others while the Senate is on a month-long recess.
The problem isn’t that the president hasn’t been in his job very long; it’s that McConnell has been in his job for too long!
After McConnell sought to blame others for his failures, Sean Hannity said, “No Senator, YOU are a WEAK, SPINELESS leader who does not keep his word and you need to Retire!”
Also, President Trump responded on Twitter saying, “Senator Mitch McConnell said I had “excessive expectations,” but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?”
Now is the time to replace Mitch McConnell. Not next year. Not in 2020. Right now. Otherwise, Republicans will squander this historic opportunity to enact conservative reforms.
The Senate is in recess until September so this is the best time to send senators a message while they are at home.
Help us make sure they go back to Washington in a few weeks with a new perspective on their leader. He’s giving Senate Republicans a bad name and must be replaced before any more time is wasted.
Thank you for standing strong for freedom. This is our chance to save our great country and we can do it if we work together.
