Grassroots Conservative Group Calls on Senate GOP to DITCH MITCH!

The time has come for Mitch McConnell to step down.

His failures and approval ratings speak for themselves. A top conservative group is speaking out and we could not agree more.

From TheHill

A conservative group wants senators to remove the GOP majority leader from his leadership post amid his a war of words with President Trump.

The Senate Conservatives Fund, a longtime foe of Sen. Mitch McConnell(R-Ky.), is urging supporters this week to pressure Senate Republicans “to replace him now.”

“Mitch McConnell is making excuses and blaming others while the Senate is on a month-long recess. The problem isn’t that the president hasn’t been in his job very long; it’s that McConnell has been in his job for too long!” the conservative group said in a blast to supporters.

McConnell said at a Rotary Club event in Kentucky earlier this week that Trump’s “excessive expectations” were partly to blame for the narrative that Republicans hadn’t accomplished anything.

“Our new president has of course not been in this line of work before and I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” McConnell said, speaking on recent healthcare efforts.

The Senate Conservatives Fund said that it “isn’t unreasonable to expect Republicans to keep their promises” and McConnell promised for years to repeal Obamacare “root and branch.”

“Now is the time to replace Mitch McConnell. Not next year. Not in 2020. Right now. Otherwise, Republicans will squander this historic opportunity to enact conservative reforms,” the group shared in a blog post Thursday.

The push to remove McConnell comes amid growing frustration from conservatives, as well as Trump, over the inability for Senate Republicans to nix the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. The Senate fell one vote short in a dramatic vote last month on a repeal bill.

Trump appeared to threaten McConnell on Thursday, suggesting the Kentucky Republican could consider stepping down as majority leader if he isn’t able to pass GOP agenda items including healthcare, tax reform and infrastructure.

The president also lashed out at McConnell in a string of tweets this week, appearing to blame him for the healthcare setback.
