Since Texas Senator Ted Cruz dropped out of the Presidential race in May, Tea Party Nation has had a singular mission. Our mission has been to make sure the Republicans kept control of the United States Senate.
After the events of this week, we are asking one simple important question.
What is that question?
Why are we even trying?
This week, the Republican controlled Senate, along with the Republican controlled House of Representatives, passed a continuing resolution to keep the government funded for about nine weeks.
That budget funds everything the Democrats and Obama want. The Republicans balked at buying Flint Michigan a new water system. It was only an extra $200 million. The Democrats threw a fit, and threatened to hold up the entire continuing resolution. This would have resulted in a government shutdown.
What did the Republicans do?
They hauled up the Republican freshly laundered white flag of surrender.
The Republicans gave the Democrats everything they wanted and what did they get in exchange?
Not a thing.
The Republicans did not even block Obama’s Internet giveaway.
But this gets even worse.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said yesterday that during the lame duck session of Congress that will happen in December, the Republicans will consider what are known as energy tax extenders.
The government wastes billions of dollars in tax credits and subsidies for so-called “green energy.” Liberal billionaires like Tom Steyer and Warren Buffett make a lot of money off of those subsidies. A couple of years ago, Buffett even told CNN that the only reason he invested in some of these green energy projects was because of the tax subsidies. As he said at the time, “Otherwise, they would not make sense.”
Liberal billionaires like Buffet and Steyer give millions to Democrats to help get them elected. Then the liberal Democrats will vote for this green pork. But their back up plan is to just let the Republicans vote for it. Either way, they win.
In 2010, the Tea Party swept Republicans back into control in the House of Representatives. We waited for the Republicans to do something. To do anything. All they did was surrender time and time again. They said we need the Senate.
In 2014, America gave them the Senate and what has happened. The GOP has surrendered again and again.
Albert Einstein described insanity as trying the same thing over and over again, while expecting a different result.
If anyone wants to know why Donald Trump had such a meteoric rise, look no further than the Republican freshly laundered white flag of surrender.
For the last five months, we have been working hard to keep Republicans in control of the Senate. Today, we have to ask why?
Some friends of ours are working on a new conservative political party. The question we should be asking is, “Why not?”
