Twenty-one RINOs in Senate join with Democrats to pass $1.7 trillion spending bill | Eastern North Carolina Now


Another example of why we need a Convention of States to overturn what these crooked politicians are doing.

Todd Starnes reported on his radio show:

Twenty-one Republican senators voted with Democrats to advance a massive omnibus spending bill without reading a single page of the 4,000+ page legislation.

American taxpayers will be forced to cover the $1.7 trillion spending bill that includes billions of dollars in money for Ukraine and millions of dollars to build a walking trail named after Michelle Obama in Georgia.

Sen. Rand Paul condemned his fellow Republicans and their betrayal of voters.

“This process stinks. It’s an abomination. It’s a no good rotten way to run government. We’re standing up and saying NO,” Paul said.

The Republican senators who betrayed their own party include Blunt, Boozman, Capito, Collins, Cornyn, Cotton, Graham, Grassley, Hyde-Smith, McConnell, Moran, Murkowski, Portman, Romney, Rounds, Rubio, Shelby, Thune, Tuberville, Wicker and Young.


McConnell’s plan was for the Establishment to sabotage both the Senate and the House during the midterm elections. When his efforts in the House failed, he colluded with Dems to strip his own party’s power in the House. This was about destroying the America First movement.

Thirteen House Republicans fired off a letter threatening to stop any legislation proposed by Senate Republicans who vote for the spending bill.

“Further, we are obliged to inform you that if any omnibus passes in the remaining days of this Congress, we will oppose and whip opposition to any legislative priority of those senators who vote for this bill – including the Republican leader,” the letter said. “We will oppose any rule, any consent request, suspension voice vote, or roll call vote of any such Senate bill, and will otherwise do everything in our power to thwart even the smallest legislative and policy efforts of those senators.”

Conservatives warned that Senate Republicans risk splitting the party in half.

“Put aside the absurd spending and empowerment of Biden bureaucrats to continue their intentional abuse of power and dereliction of duty. It is the willingness of Senate Republicans to abandon for now the one leverage point we have – the power of the purse – to stop Biden’s purposeful refusal to secure and defend our borders that is most offensive,” said the letter sent Monday.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who is campaigning to be the next Speaker, vowed to honor that threat.

“When I’m Speaker, their bills will be dead on arrival in the House if this nearly $2T monstrosity is allowed to move forward over our objections and the will of the American people,” he said.

All of these Democrat collaborators should be fiercely challenged in their next primary. THey are not real Republicans, but are Democrats-in-Drag. Three are retiring, and they were larded up with pork in this lousy bill. Most of the rest are McConnell weanies, the usual suspects for this type of betrayal to the Democrats. Three of them try to pass themselves off as conservatives and their records have not been as awful as the rest - Tom Cotton, Chuck Grassley and Marco Rubio. McConnell must have promised them something or threatened them with something, but they have made their bed with Biden and the left and now they have to lie in it. They have betrayed the Republican voters. Curiously, some of the usual suspects seem to have been afraid of the voters back home and not flipped on us. THere is absolutely no excuse for McConnell being GOP leader in the Senate/ He is a worm who is beholden to China.

I can't imagine what went through these washed-up-Republicans minds to cause them to perform such an ignorant and dastardly deed against the American People.

This foul act was unconscionable, and what it so sad is that Arkansas's Tom Cotton had a promising political career ahead of himself.
