Five Conservative Leaders Call for McConnell’s Resignation

Keely Sharp
Written by Keely Sharp

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a dinosaur in the swamp and quite frankly, he should have been drained out a long time ago.

He drags his feet to get anything done and then acts offended when someone says something about it!

More people are calling for his resignation, including:

Ken Cuccinelli, president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, Adam Brandon, president of FreedomWorks, Brent Bozell, chairman of ForAmerica, David Bozell, president of ForAmerica and Richard Viguerie, a political direct mail pioneer.

On Wednesday, the Conservative leaders wrote a letter to McConnell and his leadership team. It asked them to resign for their lack of leadership, resulting in the Senate’s failure to pass most of the bills on Trump’s agenda.

They wrote, “2017 has been a disappointing year for the millions of Americans who fully expected, and had every right to expect real change in Washington. Republicans were given full control of the federal government. They — you — have done nothing.

“It is time for you and your leadership team to step aside, for new leadership that is committed to the promise made to the American people. America is too good for you to lead it,” they added.

The Hill reports:

They pointed to what they called broken promises to stop the flow of illegal immigration, to reduce the size of government, to reduce deficit spending and to repeal ObamaCare.

They also pinged McConnell for the Senate’s schedule of convening in the afternoon on Mondays and often recessing on Thursdays.

Former White House strategist Stephen Bannon has announced plans to back conservative challenges to settled Republican incumbents such as Senate Republican Policy Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) next year because of the Senate’s lack of progress in passing Trump’s agenda.

The conservative leaders also took aim at the leaders’ efforts to defeat Tea Party and conservative challengers in Senate Republican primaries. The Senate Leadership Fund, a political fundraising group linked with McConnell, spent more than $10 million in an unsuccessful bid to defeat Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate Republican Primary.

The letter continued, “Those substantive failures come on top of your vicious, continuous, merciless attacks on grassroots Republicans, but most especially conservatives. Why do you hate the very people who are the biggest bloc of voters supporting every single member of the GOP Senate Caucus?”
