McConnell at the Bridge – WSJ

President Trump has always put his personal interests first and the Republicans pay the political price. Mr. Trump lost his bid to be re-elected for

Joe Biden,

and now it could cost the Republicans and the Senate a lot of money.

Trump lost his re-election despite the fact that the Republicans did better in the polls because voters liked his policies more than he did. The chairman has maintained a largely conservative agenda for as long as he needs the support of the GOP. But now that he’s about to leave Washington, he’s dropping out to punish Republicans and anyone who refuses to give in to his re-election fantasies.

It’s the only explanation for his decision

Bernie Sanders


Chuck Schumer

by lobbying for a $2,000 check from Covid after his own negotiators paid for $600 and the bill was passed by Congress. Mr. Trump is trying to punish

Mitch McConnell,

the majority leader, and

John Towne,

Member of the Senate leadership for acknowledging that Biden won the election.

Can you imagine if Republicans stole the Democrats’ presidential election– all hell would break loose, Tromp tweeted from Florida Tuesday. Republican leaders only want the path of least resistance. Our leaders (not me, of course!) are pathetic. They only know how to lose! P.S. I have senators.

In fact, it’s..,

GOP Sen. David Lost.

won more votes and a larger share of the votes than Trump in Georgia, and Trump became the first Republican to lose the state since 1992.

Susan Collins.

and Maine’s better, too. Meanwhile, Mr Trump’s personal and political unpopularity has helped him to stand on the sidelines.

Cory Gardner.

in Colorado.

With two rounds of voting in the Georgian Senate on the 5th. January, sir. We need to avoid damaging the government’s chances by blaming the Senate leaders in advance if the incumbent Republicans lose. It doesn’t matter that he embarrassed the Republicans by siding with the Democrats for the $2,000 checks.

On Tuesday, McConnell tried to avoid this Mar-a-Lago filth by announcing that he would hold a vote on Trump’s checks and other demands in the future. The bill could include $2,000 checks, as well as the repeal of section 230 of the Decency Search Act in Decency Notices and Fraud Election.

It’s the right policy decision because $2,000 checks are not needed and people in real need have access to extended unemployment benefits, food vouchers, childcare subsidies and more. Politically, it’s about damage limitation. Senators of Georgia

Kelly Loeffler.

and David Perdue immediately approved the $2,000 checks, and Mr. McConnell will take responsibility for the freeze. The majority leader knows that most GOP senators oppose adding $350 billion or more to the federal deficit while setting a terrible precedent for the next recession.

We’ll see how it goes in Georgia, but it’s not Mitch McConnell’s fault. The political damage caused by the GOP comes from

Donald Trump,

…force defeat, help elect a democratic Senate…

Potomac Watch: In June, the Democrats called the coronavirus a great opportunity to restructure things in our own way. The Biden administration will continue this theme unless Republicans agree on budgetary discipline. Images : Zuma/AFP Composite : Mark Kelly
