Mitch McConnell Votes to Fund Obamacare
Red State ^ | 3/21/2013 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 03/21/2013 4:23:56 AM PDT by IbJensen

Hey, remember that awesome CPAC speech by Mitch McConnell?

The one where Mitch McConnell said — and I quote — “Obamacare should be repealed root and branch. And we’re not backing down from this fight.”

And the same speech where Mitch McConnell also said, “This law is a disaster, and anybody who thinks we’ve moved beyond it is dead wrong.”

Well, as I told you, Mitch McConnell excels at saying one thing and doing another. Yesterday, Mitch McConnell voted to fund Obamacare.

Hey Utah, he joined Orrin Hatch in doing so. Remember, just last year on the campaign trail Orrin Hatch told you all how he was going to absolutely fight to rid us of Obamacare at all costs. And he got a large portion of the conservative movement to cheer him on as a result.

Yeah, that Orrin Hatch voted to fund Obamacare too.

And now for the punchline — the majority of the Republicans in the Senate voted against funding Obamacare. McConnell and Hatch were in the minority of Republicans who chose to side with the Democrats and fund Obamacare.

Here is the full list of the Republicans who voted for the Ted Cruz amendment to defund Obamacare, but then flipped their votes to actually vote to fund Obamacare : ◾Alexander (R-TN)

◾Barrasso (R-WY)

◾Blunt (R-MO)

◾Boozman (R-AR)

◾Chambliss (R-GA)

◾Coats (R-IN)

◾Cochran (R-MS)

◾Collins (R-ME)

◾Corker (R-TN)

◾Cornyn (R-TX)

◾Hatch (R-UT)

◾Hoeven (R-ND)

◾Isakson (R-GA)

◾Johanns (R-NE)

◾McConnell (R-KY)

◾Murkowski (R-AK)

◾Sessions (R-AL)

◾Shelby (R-AL)

◾Thune (R-SD)

◾Wicker (R-MS)

They just pretend to not agree with each other UNTIL THE CAMERA IS TURNED OFF AND PACKED AWAY. Then it's off to a Morton Steakhouse for dinner. It IS ONE PARTY NOW !

The good news is we have a list of the people to send home out of our house. Time to that bad boy up- after decades of continuous frat parties. We don’t have to guess who is stealing our freedoms and turning our government into an Animal House party. Just look at the list. :)

Thanks for lining up for us- “Republicans who lick Obama’s boots”.

The time of the ballot box is over.

The time of the mail box has passed.

The time of the soap box is rapidly ending.

That leaves only one box left.

Get yours, while it's still legal...

Sessions voted for this!?! None of the rest on this list surprises me but I can’t believe he did this. If he’ll stab you in the back then they all will. It’s time for a new party. Off to hell Republican Party!!! I loathe you more than ANY Democrat I can think of!! To hell with you!!!

Was this bundled with the Military Appropriations Bill?

Was this a clochure vote?

I could not find the vote on senate.gov

It’s pretty bad when you are voting to the LEFT of Lindsey Graham and John McCain...

Cornyn was a traitor as well....

Maybe their idea and method of stopping Obamacare doesn’t include this vote.

I am serious.

There is more than one way to skin a cat.

Not voting third party conservative is why we are always in this predicament.

If you continue to ignore third party conservatives...the GOP knows they can keep running liberals....you play right into the GOP Liberals hands. Your idea has failed way too many times
