Even former Never Trumper Erick Erickson is sick and tired of Mitch McConnell failing to push the GOP agenda.
And he’s saying he should be replaced:
From Fox News:
“He doesn’t seem to be down with the president’s agenda. Where’s the wall? Where’s tax reform? Where’s ObamaCare repeal? These are all things that go to the Senate and then they suddenly die,” Erickson said.
“It’s not like there aren’t the votes in the Senate to get them passed. We can’t even blame filibuster for this because the way they structured Obamacare repeal you only needed 50 votes plus the vice president. They can’t even get that with Mitch McConnell.”
Dang. Here’s an excerpt from his editorial:
Tax reform is dead on arrival.
The entirety of the GOP agenda is stuck in the Senate where Mitch McConnell seems intent to let it all die on the vine while blaming conservatives.
It is time for the Senate GOP to replace Mitch McConnell so that President Trump can actually get some of his legislative policies advanced. It is not conservatives who are the obstacle, but the Senate leader himself.
Mr. President, instead of considering a challenge to Jeff Flake, it might be time to send McConnell to the pasture.
Dude makes sense.
