For Moscow Mitch, party and personal gain are first and foremost.
“My motto for the rest of the year is: Leave no vacancy behind,” McConnell told the Federalist Society, the entity he relies on to find the most archconservative of candidates to remake the judiciary. McConnell made no bones about the fact that he’s cramming the courts with the most conservative activist judges and that that’s all he intends to do. “Why? It’s pretty obvious—lifetime appointments,” he said. “If you want to have an impact on the country, there are not many things that we do that can’t be undone by the next election. […] But there’s not much you can do about a young, strict constructionist who’s committed for a lifetime to the quaint notion that maybe the job of a judge is to follow the law.” That would be the law as established at the founding, during slavery, and when only white male landowners had the vote.
This is Moscow Mitch’s only goal. Although the House has passed more than 220 bills since January 3, 2019, the traitorous Senate Majority Leader has refused to allow a vote on a single issue. The reason? Every bill would benefit the majority and not protect the wealth of the one percent.
Trump must not receive a second term. But of equal importance is ensuring that the House remains in control of Democrats, and the Senate be returned to the party of FDR. When the old useless man from Kentucky is no longer in control of the senate, our dysfunctional government will return to a working legislature. Moscow Mitch created the party of no and we can not allow him to win another six years in office.
I beg the people of Kentucky to do the right thing and rid our nation of America’s biggest traitor; Moscow Mitch McConnell.
