U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says hell fight a proposal to eliminate a 52-year-old federal agency that seeks to create jobs.

In fact, McConnell said, We are not going to allow any cuts to the commission.

I found jobs for thousands of people during my time with Job Service. I wonder if they can say the same?
“Campaign finance reform” now. McConnell isn’t playing ball. He and his K Street donors need a hard punch.
Most of Congress reacts to budget cuts like a drugee being cut off from his drug.
The ARC has been around for over 50 years and has done very little for Appalachia. It’s primarily a means for Appalachian politicians to funnel money to their home state & district pals to keep local machines beholden to them.
TIME TO SHUT IT DOWN!
Mitch McCornhole needs to figure out who we elected. IT WAS NOT HIM!!or any RINO!!
Why? If you would get off your lazy backside and get President Trumps cabinet approved and get Obamacare repealed and replaced the good people of Appliachia would be going to work right now.
How many real jobs has your socialist bureau created Marblemouth?
Wow misspelled at!
Given the numbers, those jobs paid each worker $7,422.90, or about half the current poverty rate. Way to go, Mitch!!
he sure does take care of his own backyard, huh?
So, a good indicator of the one of N (where N is a large number) of places where this bottom-dwelling, pond scum eating POS POSBD (person who should be dead) gets his graft.
Boy, when CW-II happens, I hope we have all the addresses of these folks.
I don’t remember McConnell being on the ballot as President, do any of you?
Trump will trade it for something else.
He needs this old criminal in the Senate.
They’re scared to death that if they aren’t handing out money the great unwashed masses will figure out they’re losers.
Trump called them on limited government and they folded.
The GOP is a total sham.
CONGRESSIONAL CRIMINALS ALL.
Mitch McConnell: of Washington, by Washington, for Washington.
He is pure District of Corruption through and through.
There will be no fundamental conservative change until this chump and Paul Ryan are deposed.
