Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to resign over his failure to repeal Obamacare.
Despite controlling the White House and both chambers of Congress, Republicans have shown they can’t govern out of a paper bag. In fact, they probably would think a paper bag would be too generous to working people.
The collapse of their seven-year revenge porn dream of killing Obamacare dealt a serious blow to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his ability to pass legislation. And some Republicans are super pissed.
Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL), for example, is less than pleased with the his party’s failure to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare. He’s not taking the loss very well and now he’s out for blood, particularly Mitch McConnell’s.
Brooks told Chris Cuomo on CNN’s New Day Friday morning:
“If they’re gonna quit, well then by golly, maybe they ought to start at the top with Mitch McConnell leaving his position and letting somebody new, somebody bold, somebody conservative take the reins.”
Then Mo Brooks continued.
“If Mitch McConnell cannot get the job done on this, how is he going to get the job done on the rest of President Trump’s agenda over the next three and a half years?”
The epic failure on the part of Republicans to kill off millions of Americans by gutting Obamacare shows just how destructive and toxic their legislation was. However, it also illustrates major cleavages between the more moderate wing of the party and the far-right fringe.
But the most glaring issue is how the never-ending chaos unfolding in the White House, combined with Trump’s complete and utter inability to understand political conventions, has essentially made it even harder for McConnell to pass legislation. It basically comes down to which spineless Republicans will kowtow to Trump and which ones will work with McConnell.
And while all of this drama unfolds, the Americans people will be left in the cross-hairs of a dysfunctional governing body and one hell-bent on mafia-style fascism.
