We can label them Rinos because they are playing politics with the countries future and their personal power. This is a great object lesson in how the system works for those who are playing the game. In the past when the Rinos knew that Obama would veto the bill, they voted for it. Now that Trump is ready to sign a repeal bill, they voted against it. This is how a famous Presidential candidate gave us the immortal sound bite,
“Kerry complicated matters with his now infamous words, ‘I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.’”By playing these games the self centered politicians can send one set of reports to people who favor repeal and say they voted to repeal and another report to people who are against repeal and say they voted against it. In both cases they speak accurately but do not speak truth.
So here they are courtesy of the Washington Times:
“The seven Republicans who joined Democrats in opposing repeal were Sens. Susan M. Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Dean Heller of Nevada, John McCain of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.”Read it and weep Americans. Here are seven senators who need to be opposed and removed.
Let the discussion continue.
