Mitch McConnell will be remembered as the worst Senate Majority Leader in history; that is an undeniable fact. He created the party of ‘no’ when he promised to obstruct all of President Obama’s policies right after his first inauguration in 2009. He is the man who refused a hearing for Mr. Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland. He is the man who became the second biggest hypocrite in Washington, only losing that title to Lyin Paul Ryan, when he reversed his position and now bows to Donald Trump’s every demand.
Now McConnell is attempting to force the passage of Trumpcare, the worst healthcare bill ever assembled, and denounced by the vast majority of voters, and most medical service organizations.
McConnell is very likely to face anger from the people of his own state, Kentucky.
When Obamacare was first passed into law, Kentucky’s percentage of uninsured was 20.4, but was reduced to 7.8 percent in 2016. Like citizens in other states, they are fearful of losing their healthcare under Trumpcare.
McConnell has avoided his fellow Kentuckians who have appeared at his offices and even his home. He doesn’t care about what they have to say; he is serving his master without regard for those who voted him into office, and kept him there for over 30 years.
Contrary to McConnell’s Republican supporters, I believe that if he pushes Trumpcare through the senate; forcing many to lose their healthcare in Kentucky, and reduce the funding for Medicaid, the harm he will do to the voters in his own state combined with his age, 78 in three years, will encourage voters to reconsider their support for his reelection in 2020.
Without McConnell the American people would experience better representation in our government. He has failed to work for the 99 percent throughout his lengthy stay in Washington. He has been a traitor to the American people.
Please re-post; thank you.
