A conservative political action committee on Tuesday slammed two of the Senates top Republicans as turncoats who have surrendered on the health care fight.
Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn have surrendered to Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and the Democrats, charged an email blast from the Senate Conservatives Fund. More importantly, they have surrendered to Obamacare the biggest job killer in America.
We knew Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn werent with us when they voted to fund Obamacare earlier this year, the email continued. But then, under pressure from grassroots, they said they supported the effort to defund it. They even ran political ads in their home states to make voters think they were on their side. But now, faced with the prospect of having to fight for the things they claim to believe, these Senate leaders have surrendered.
The email, bearing the subject line the ultimate betrayal, urged readers to contact GOP senators and indicate opposition to moving forward with the bill.
We cant let these turncoats force millions of Americans into this liberal train wreck, it said.

Nah, just the usual hypocritical GOPe, who won't be getting another POTUS ever, at this rate.
Two more for the tree of liberty. Do they want to hang together or separate?
Neither of the SOBs will ever be UNDER the yoke of ObamaCARE.
NONE of them.
Nor their families, forever.
Nor whomever they put on their staffs, forever.
They get their money from the folks who stand to make a lot of money on bammy-care. Follow the money. No sane rational person would ever force this behomouth on America just because they care.
Yep......Both McConnell & Cornyn are adoring Obamabots!!! The Pubbies need to broom these two traitors right now!!! Get rid of them both!!!
They are the equivalents of Marshal Petain and Vidkun Quisling. Collaborators.
As a high ranking minority, you can get a lot of hay from the majority by turning your coat at opportune moments.
Some people (cough McCain) do this so often that it is almost an art form.
MATT BEVIN FOR SENATE!
MATT BEVIN FOR SENATE!
He has declared he stands with Cruz, McConnell stands with Reid.
Tar and feather them first!
I believe Mitch McConnell should start cleaning out his office., He is Toast.
A yellow streak up his back wider than the Panama Canal./
End their political career. Recall, primary them, shadow them with cameras until they pull a Weiner....
RINO’s on parade.
Oh, no....they’ll have that “No” vote on ObamaCare to cover their butts in their next election....the vote that Reid will win with 51 votes to strip the House defunding language from the bill. But these slime balls will have voted for cloture tomorrow, which will enable Reid to win the vote to fund ObamaCare with 51 votes instead of 60. The vote that counts is tomorrow, and if all 46 Republicans voted against cloture, Reid couldn’t win. Don’t be fooled by the liars who think we are too stupid to catch on to their well-worn trickery.
Turncoats???? How about )(*_()&*&^R$^&#^%#$%*&*^G&(&^*&%$^
Also, where's the herd jumping in line to explain how McConell and Cornyn are playing some sophisticated multi-level chess game and that by "caving" or portraying turncoats Mc and Cornyn are somehow "political geniuses" doing this for the benefit of us poor non-politically astute ignoramuses? (ala the genius 'It's a Tax Roberts')
This is what happens when we blindly vote for (R). This is what happens when we sacrifice principle so "our guy" can get in there. I'm not advocating that [you] only vote for the guy with 100% the same views as [you] but if they don't meet the 75% threshold and your candidate's attributes are -
He's the lesser of two evils
He sucks less
His platform evolved
He'll get mentored and taken under the care of some conservative
Some other (R) or group of (R)s will 'hold his feet to the fire'
He has (R) by his name
Well, he claimed to be a "severe conservative" --
Here is your folly in action - McConell, McCain, Grahm, Cornyn
Now let's hope Boner can hold onto the backbone he borrowed over in the House.
2016 is going to be ugly for the GOPe.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants... bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society. Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors. [but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
