letter to the editor

I am a surgeon, so I will be as sharp as my knife. Now is the time to repeal Senator Mitch McConnell as the Senate Majority Leader and replace him with a true leader who will fight for America.

The McConnell-Schumer Deal is the straw that breaks America’s back. Senate Majority Manager McConnell did not compromise with the Washington Democrats, he capitulated to them! This confirms the words of Senator Rand Paul, “…when the Republicans are in power, it seems there is no conservative party.”

In the dark of night, behind closed doors, the Senate elite of both parties sold out our children and their children’s children to Washington’s special interests. For what? Was it to ransom our military from the Democrats who have held our warriors and their families fiscally hostage for almost a decade? If the $400 billion ransom payment is derived from the sacrificing of our children’s future prosperity, it is simply too high of a price to pay.

So I ask you, Senate Majority Manager McConnell, what happened to passing a budget through regular order and transparency in the U.S. Senate? Where are the committee hearings and open floor debate about the budget transmitted to the U.S. Senate by the U.S. House of Representatives? Are you too busy begging for special interest money for the next election that you are deliberately derelict in your duties to America and our people?

Once again we have witnessed the classic American political tragedy. America’s people and our children’s future are harmed by the villains who voted for this budget deal. It is time for the Republican Senators to step up and become the heroes in this tragedy. It is time for them to cull the “Old Bull” from the herd and elect a new Senate Majority Leader that has the courage and stamina to lead the U.S. Senate in a new direction and make America truly great again.
