Conservative columnist Erick Erickson has come out calling for us to ditch Mitch McConnell. This comes after another failure to pass the GOP health care bill that would replace Obamacare. This is what even more and more people are going towards. Maybe he is not working out and President Trump will do something about it if he feels like he has to. The GOP needs to come up with something to get rid of Obamacare as it is starting to kill people, literally. Americans cannot afford the premiums that come with it.
Erick Erickson went at McConnell, explaining what is wrong with him.
“He does not seem to be down with the president’s agenda. Where is the wall? Where is tax reform? Where is ObamaCare repeal? There are all things that go to the Senate and then they suddenly die,” he explained.
“It is not like there are not the votes in the Senate to get them passed. We cannot even blame filibuster for this because the way they structured Obamacare repeal you only needed 50 votes plus the vice president. They cannot even get that with Mitch McConnell.” There has definitely been a big step in the wrong direction as of late and we need to come up with a plan that we can act on.
“It is time for the Senate GOP to replace Mitch McConnell so that President Trump can actually get some of his legislative policies advanced. It is not conservatives who are the obstacle, but the Senate leader himself,” he went on. Erickson has been saying things like this for a very long time. Maybe it is about time we start listening.
Mitch McConnell has been unable to do his job for a long time. He has been met with shortcoming after shortcoming. There is no excuse for the failures that he has been a part of. The GOP can only be successful if everyone involved is on board with what President Trump is doing.
What do you think?
