Conservatives across the board, including GOP leaders, are basically fed up with Mitch McConnell and calling on him to resign because to them he basically can’t get anything done.
Adam Brandon, president of FreedomWorks stated “It’s time for new leadership,” “Mitch McConnell has been a failure in the Senate and has cost Republicans almost a year of victories. He has demonstrated that he either does not understand the frustration coming from conservatives and the urgency of passing key legislation – or he does not care.”
In fact, a letter has been penned and signed by several top Conservatives which states many of their complaints.
“2017 has been a disappointing year for the millions of Americans who fully expected and had every right to expect real change in Washington. Republicans were given full control of the federal government. They – you – have done nothing. Worse, it is painfully clear that you intend to do nothing because, as is most apparent, you had no intention of honoring your solemn commitments to the American people. You were not going to “drain the swamp.”
“You are the swamp. You and the rest of your leadership team were given the majority because you pledged to stop the steady flow of illegal immigration. You have done nothing. You pledged to reduce the size of this oppressive federal government. You have done nothing. You pledged to reduce, and ultimately eliminate the out-of-control deficit spending that is bankrupting America. You have done nothing.”
“You promised to repeal Obamacare, “root and branch.” You have done nothing. You promised tax reform. You have done nothing.”
“You don’t even show up for work.”
“You can read the whole thing here.”
Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, said in a statement posted on teapartypatriots.org:
“Perhaps if Congress were not benefiting from its illegal special exemption from ObamaCare, if members of the House and Senate and their staffs were actually living under the law the way it was written, paying the full price and bearing the same burdens that the rest of us have to live with, they’d understand just how painful ObamaCare really is, and they’d have a personal stake in repealing it.”
“But as long as Mitch McConnell is Majority Leader of the United States Senate, that illegal special exemption for Congress is going to stay in place.”
“All these failures have one thing in common – they represent a FAILURE of LEADERSHIP.”
“Mitch McConnell has had his chance. He has failed to deliver. It is TIME FOR HIM TO GO.”
