Keep it up and the RINO’s will take a shellacking in 2016.
There is a growing backlash against 20 Senate Republicans who less than a month ago publicly stated that President Obama’s executive amnesty was unconstitutional, only to turn around and vote in favor of funding it last week, conservative leaders say.
“This was easy. All of them said they were against amnesty. All they had to do was press a button,” Ken Cuccinelli, president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, told CNSNews.com.
“For them to roll over so close to an election in which Obamacare, executive amnesty, and Obama’s massive and lawless expansion of presidential power were the top three issues is pretty amazing.”
Cuccinelli said he is “shocked” that 20 Senate Republicans “defected from the Constitution, defected from the Founding Fathers,” noting that the grassroots is indignant over what it correctly views as a betrayal of conservative principles.[…]
“Exquisite hypocrisy,” agreed Richard Viguerie’s ConservativeHQ, blasting Republicans “who prefer to campaign like conservatives at home while voting with President Obama when they are in Washington.”
Led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), 20 Republican senators who had previously condemned the president’s executive amnesty as unconstitutional joined 54 Democrats in voting against the constitutional point of order raised by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) late Saturday, which would have sent the $1.1 trillion “cromnibus” bill back to the House to remove funding for amnesty.[…]
“Instead of fighting to defend the Constitution, Speaker John Boehner schemed with the Democrat-controlled Senate to rush through a massive spending bill that fully funds Obamacare and the president’s unlawful amnesty… Tell John Boehner if he likes being speaker, he better start listening to the people who put him there,” the ad running in Boehner’s Ohio district says.
Passage of the cromnibus bill “emphasizes the need for us to unify behind a solidly conservative presidential nominee,” Cuccinelli told CNSNews.com. “I believe the Republican majority [in Congress] will swing heavily behind the leadership of a Republican president, so a good conservative, limited-government president should be our goal.”
And all those Republicans who betrayed their constituents and voted to fund executive amnesty should watch their backs, he warned.
