Report: Top GOP donors upset with legislative failures
2017 CAPITOL HILL PUBLISHING CORP. ^ | 10/05/17 08:57 AM EDT | BY OLIVIA BEAVERS -

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.

The problem is not McConnell and Ryan; it is the members: McCain, Collins, Paul, etc.


Not so, if McConnell and Ryan were leaders they would sideline McLame and company - strip them of their plum committees, shut them down. That’s what a leader does.

They’re busy running scared and trying to pass some gun control laws with their natural allies, the Democrats.

They’ll get back to you on that.

I don’t give anything to the GOP. I support individual candidates.

In my case...Kelli Ward!

With a willing and eager president, a majority in the senate and a majority in the House they are squandering the opportunity of the century.

They are despicable and an embarrassment to the nation.

If the donors are pissed off, that’s probably a good sign for us normals.

I am aware that the GOP will do very nicely without the couple of thousand dollars I used to contribute. Having the big dollar donors put the same pressure on these clowns will really help. I haven’t opened a piece of RNC mail in years...they go straight in the garbage.

Not really this story is just to throw people off track. ObamaCare is still in place pushing the train down the track of single payer which gets health care off the corporate books and on the tax payers backs and they've stalled the wall and prevent real immigration enforcement so they can get their dream of comprehensive immigration reform. They are also busy passing legislation to allow more tech visas and allowing the spouses of visa holders to also be allowed to work as well. The stop Trump agenda from the GOP has worked very well indeed. Next will come the talk “ Mr. President as you can without us being on board your Presidency is going nowhere but if you conform to our agenda then we can get moving on the things really that matter to our donors. We can bring both the media and the democrats on board too. You also won't have to spend your own money for reelection as the Bush family as already promised their fund raising apparatus to placed at your disposal!”

RINOs bank on conservative voters having no other options. That’s how they stay in control.

One would hope so...MONEY TALKS...or else we'll find out the Dem Donors are feeding the RINOS.

Yes. Just had a message from a friend in Kentucky. BCBS is leaving as of the middle of December and Obamacare is her only option. Obamacare was designed to destroy this country. And the gutless wonders are letting it continue.

>>I’ve never given a dime to the party.

I have and regretted it every time. Finally learned “fool me once... fool me too many times...” Right now the only place I’ll donate is direct to PJT.

Then fund getting rid of the pseudo-Republicans, some of whom are in alliance with the left and some of whom were put there as Manchurian Republicans.

It is clear to me that the rinos have destroyed the GOP. It is now the rinos. and MAGA . Trump is not going to be blamed for the sabotage by the gope.mc Connell and Ryan are highly paid to obstruct the American great agenda by K street. 2018 will be a rino slaughter in the primaries and if they survive that then in the general. But Trump will gain in popularity and veto all the commie crap and easily beat the radical socialists in 2020. By the the MAGA party will have obliterated the K street oligarchy.

McCain, Collins and Murkowski are scum bags who would jump ship to the Democrats in a second , giving Schumer and the Democrats control of the Senate

Harry Reid is a good example of how to keep members in line. He got his beat down message and retired before they really got serious.

Democrats have also relied on their HR department to discipline employees such as Seth Rich when necessary.

Same here - no money to GOP/PACs/NRCC.....I do periodic donations to Trump using https://www.donaldjtrump.com and directly to other candidates as is called for.

McTumor was the leaker and is the road block to progress. When he goes tits up I think things will start to change quickly.
