Moscow Mitch is the “Great Obstructionist.” It is he who in January 2009 promised that his party would do nothing, and he has kept that promise. Since January 3, 2019 the House passed more than two hundred pieces of legislation, including bills which would positively affect members of our military and their families. He has not allowed a single vote on many important issues. Moscow Mitch created the ‘party of no,’ and it is he who insured our government became dysfunctional.
One example is a bill requiring extended background checks for gun purchases. Although this was passed in late February in the House, and is favored by the majority of the American people, he refuses to allow a vote on the Senate Floor. The very day the shooting in Santa Clarita, California, occurred, he quashed an effort by Democrats to bring the bill to a vote.
Today, Moscow Mitch is making a failed effort to spin the truth, claiming that House Democrats are failing to perform their jobs while holding impeachment hearings.
“Washington Democrats in the House and the Senate cannot simply stop legislating because of one hearing in the House,” he tweeted Thursday. “The American people deserve progress: Funding for the national defense. Key legislation to support our armed forces. The USMCA and the new jobs it would create.”
This from a man who refused to allow a vote which would help to secure future elections and and reopened the door for additional interference by Russian agents. A man who refuses to serve the people of our nation or his state of Kentucky. This cowardly man places his party ahead of the people of the United States of America.
Shame on you, Moscow Mitch, and shame on the people of Kentucky if they reelect him in 2020.
