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.

Does McCain still have his office? Does Collins still hold her committee roles? If they do, then McConnell is giving them "wink, wink" permission to vote the way they do.

It would not take much to get Sens. McCain and Collins to make Sen Schumer the ML and then none of President Trump's conservative judges would be confirmed ...

We need more winning in the 2018 midterms ...

What happen when they switch parties and get the same assignments?

They will more than likely get voted out next election cycle.

Collins was just re-elected. I don’t know when the others are up. But should they switch you can say good-bye to any new conservative justice and the other nominated judges will stay in limbo.

Why blame McConnell and Ryan for the actions of McCain and Collins?

If the leadership can’t deliver results, what good are they?

A fair point. But I find it ridiculous to regard them as boogeymen. The Congressional leadership gets far too much blame around here in my opinion, they reflect their members not the other way around. I fail to envision things being much different if they were replaced. If McConnell dropped dead this very instant his successor would likely be Cornyn.

McConnell sure did well blocking Merrick Garland. With a few more Senators he could repeal Osamacare, and it’s not as if another leader could do it now with the intransigence of McCain, Collins and Murkowski and the rigid foolishness of Rand Paul. Herding cats.

Both Ryan and McCo will eventually be replaced, and promise you FR will come to hate their replacements too, the nature of the job.

I think McConnell deserves a lot of credit for his work as an opposition leader but he can’t seem to translate that into success now that his party is in the majority and holding the WH

Ryan just isn’t a leader. When he was a young up and comer he appeared to have good instincts but good instincts -and even good policies -don’t necessarily mean somebody is qualified to head up a legislature.
