Top GOP donors are reportedly angry over the Republican Party's legislative failures, telling lawmakers their wallets are closed until something passes through the chambers....
As the GOP agenda stalls, party contributors are slowing down their cash donations until the lawmakers start showing they can get results and keep their key promises to undo Obama-era measures.
With the 2018 midterms just around the corner, GOP lawmakers are trying to reassure the donors that they can deliver.

Ryan and the House are hiding behind McCain, Collins, Murkowski, etc. in the senate. They pat themselves on the back for passing something, but they aren’t surprised by negative votes in the senate. They know how it’s going to go.
I know I am fed up!
I don’t give anything to the GOP. I support individual candidates.
Then they should have no problem communicating that to them personally and inform the gutless, lying POS that they will be funding their replacements in their next primary...
Wait, being in Congress is about legislation, not fundraising?
Then the pissants have the temerity to issue a press release to claim that Bannon and Gorka are insignificant. But K Street will make every attempt to keep deluding the establishment.
Thomas Wachtell, a longtime party donor, confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) about getting a legislative win during a recent dinner at the home of Los Angeles billionaire Robert Day...two dozen attendees who witnessed the testy exchange....Wachtell told the news outlet that McConnell reacted defensively...
"The GOP leaders should know, no movement on remaining agenda: tax reform, infrastructure, deregulation, etc. means no funding from supporters like me, one angry donor said to a longtime Republican fundraiser in an email forwarded to Politico. No meetings, calls, contributions until we see progress.
It’s good they are talking tough..especially with the 2018 mid-terms around the corner.
It’s about time for RINOs to start talking like they are ultra-consetvatives,too.
Go slow. Take the morning off. Do it this afternoon. A kindergarten mock UN could do it, how about the professionals?
NOW we’ll see action.
Same here. I’ve never given a dime to the party.
“With the 2018 midterms just around the corner, GOP lawmakers are trying to reassure the donors that they can deliver.”
The problem is that they’re out of “But we can’t do that, the Dems are blocking us” excuses. The only thing blocking the GOP... is the GOP.
McConnell and Ryan are at fault because they let McCain, Collins, et al misbehave without severe consequences for their actions. Mostly because McTurtle and Lyin actually endorse their actions.
The “donor” class is probably mad about the failure to
give citizenship to illegals and the failure to get more H-1B visas.
Most of the stuff they tried to pass would still fall into the Legislative Failure bin if it had passed.
Outstanding. It just goes to show how arrogant and ignorant that turtle-faced POS actually is... thanks for posting, I had to post and run before reading the article.
