Has McConnell ever voted for a bill based on it's merits?

This Is Bold Text: Has McConnell ever voted for a bill based on it's merits?


Nope.

Now he's parading Sinema around on a leash to look like he's still in control of Congress while Trump and his goons continue to rape democracy.

I'd say "let them fight," but we all lose.

When you give your word to a senator, that's considered your bond," said Brian Darling, Republican strategist former Senate aide.

That's the biggest load of horse hockey I'll read today. The list of GOP Senators breaking the word is nigh endless

Senator Manchin, If you see a delicious worm dancing in Mitch McConnel's mouth, don't try to eat it.   That's all I'm saying.

He's filibustered his own billbefore.

And yet many politicians still treat him as trustworthy and worth working with.

This country can never move forward until the McConnel problem is dealt with, either by him dying in office, or simply the Democrats being able to override his stranglehold, but, until he's dethroned in some fashion, he will continue to drown this Democracy fighting for the Confederates.

The Republican senator who aired those feelings of betrayal publicly was Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), who also voted for the CHIPS Act.

Cornyn said "trust was eviscerated" when Manchin unveiled his deal with Schumer.
"Sens. Manchin and Schumer did not draft this 725-page bill in the four hours between the passage of the CHIPS Act and Senator Manchin's press release. They've been working on this the entire time when they told us it was off the table," he fumed on the Senate floor.
"To look you in the eye and tell you one thing and to do another is absolutely unforgivable," he said.



Yet, perjuring yourself, while testifying under oath to the Senate, is fine for members of the US Supreme Republicans?

I suspect that 150 years ago, this kind of bullshiat would be settled between senators physically. Especially if the Senators are from West Virginia and Kentucky.

The Democrats could override him at any time. He has zero actual power. Perhaps ironically, Manchin is one of the Democrats who routinely helps him to stop legislation.

You just have to understand what they mean by words like trustworthy. Someone who constantly lies to the public but stays bought when someone buys him is, to them, an extremely moral man.

Meanwhile, McConnell is still willing to lean in and eat the anus of the orange pile of trash who insulted him and his wife so casually. For a bunch of people who ejaculate to toxically masculine movies and tough guys on tv, Republicans sure seem to be a bunch of cuck cowards. See, ted cruz also

I'm old enough to remember when the great god Om took the form of a turtle. I think he had several pointed remarks about people like McConnell

Well the important thing is we are all being held hostage by a confederate hillbilly and an oil baron hillbilly from flyover country. Democracy at its finest.

'"To look you in the eye and tell you one thing and to do another is absolutely unforgivable," he said.'

Kind of like how McConnell said it's for the voters to decide the next SCOTUS judge a year out before Obama left office and then kept ramming them through up to near the last day of Trump in office? Yeah that was pretty unforgivable.

It also spelled 'asshole' as 'McConnell'
 
2022-10-04 1:34:34 PM  
So wait.

The "incompetent" Chuck Schumer not only hoodwinked McConnell and company into passing CHIPS and browbeat them into passing PACT but he also secured Manchin's cooperation in exchange for a deal that has now been scuttled by McConnell?

"Manchin is in the wrong here because the Senate is a small, clubby atmosphere. When you give your word to a senator, that's considered your bond," said Brian Darling, Republican strategist former Senate aide. "It was a very high-profile non-keeping of commitment."

Boy, when you're not busy stealing Supreme Court seats after swearing up and down that you would NEVER do such a thing, you Republican c*nts sure do enjoy lecturing the rest of us about your phony honor and integrity.

Lots of petty-self-indulgence-before-country going on in the GOP.
 
2022-10-04 1:42:20 PM  
This whole thing is hilarious:

• Schumer promises Manchin he can have a perk for his fossil fuel buddies if he supports IRA, hoodwinking Yertle in the process
• Yertle gets pissy with Manchin and kiboshes the fossil fuel industry as retribution.

So all the Democratic priorties pass thru -- and the Republican Senate leader punishes the fossil fuel industry in WV.

Priceless.

Don't forget sandbagging them over CHIPS and PACT

So let me get this straight....

Republican Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell can hold Manchin to account, but...

Democratic Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer cannot?
 
2022-10-04 1:51:32 PM  
I don't think Mitch McConnell takes anything personally.  I do not say this as a compliment. I think McConnell is ENTIRELY strategic on what he thinks is best for his side. I don't think personal care - or ethics or consistency - have any bearing on McConnell's decision-making process.

They're farking 12. Our economy and our laws are being drafted by the inspiration for Mean Girls.

"Billy told me he didn't take my bag of red hot Cheetos, but at lunch I saw his hands were bright red. Hey guys, at dodgeball in gym later, everyone aim at Billy."

Damnit, we're more screwed than we knew.

Of COURSE he has, every time!

It's just that for him, the only 'merits' a bill has is how much it rewards the 1% and how much it hurts the common man.

The continued existence of both Manchin and McConnell is unforgivable.

And McConnell is totally oblivious to the irony in him making that statement.
 
2022-10-04 3:38:55 PM  
Even if Donald Trump personally strangled McConnell's wife to death in front of him, McConnell would still vote for Trump if he was the party nominee.
