Press Release

    Mitch McConnell and NRSC to Host D.C. Fundraiser for ObamaCare Sympathizer Thom Tillis

    Originally Published in FreedomWorks For America on 3/24/14.

    Washington, DC- Tonight, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) headquarters is hosting a fundraiser for North Carolina moderate and Senatorial candidate Thom Tillis. Headlining the fundraiser invite was a “who’s who” of beltway establishmentarians, including Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Lamar Alexander, and Senator Richard Burr. Attendees must pay a minimum of $1,000 per PAC or $500 per person to rub elbows with the D.C. elite.

    According to the Washington Post, NRSC Chairman Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) explained today that playing in races like this one are a priority because the “map and opportunities have expanded dramatically in a year, in part because of the consequences of the Affordable Care Act."

    This is an ironic statement, given that Thom Tillis effectively endorsed ObamaCare as a “great idea that can’t be paid for.”

    “A lot can be learned about a man by looking at the company he keeps,” commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks for America. “While fiscal conservative Greg Brannon is meeting with grassroots activists from across the state of North Carolina, Thom Tillis will be in Washington D.C., rubbing elbows with the establishment Republicans who failed to take a stand in the battle to defeat ObamaCare.”

    “North Carolinians have to decide, do you want a Senator like Greg Brannon who will fight alongside conservatives like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul on the Senate floor to defeat ObamaCare? Or do you want a Senator who schmoozes alongside progressive Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Lamar Alexander at swanky cocktail parties?”

    FreedomWorks for America is a grassroots service center to a community of over 6 million activists supporting candidates who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government.

    Rush has always been right about this law. The Republican Nobles....All the want it the power... The Democrat National Socialist, are openly driving the country off the cliff....and telling the N.I.V (No Information Voter) "The Republicans are doing it"....On the other hand, Republican Nobles. Want the power, love big nanny government. They want to tell everyone, "We're driving it off the cliff"..."Sure we are"..."We'll just manage it better"

    I simply find stories like these to be on the verge of hilarity. Yet another example of how a fake, conservative billionaire-funded astroturf movement is ironically making it a lot easier for Democrats simply by causing a split inside the GOP.
    What's more, this article seems to suggest continued support for some of the politicians who actually supported shutting down the government over Obamacare? That event cost the US economy over 5 billion dollars.
    Let me bring out my crystal ball for what I suspect will happen in 2016:

    A number of more reasonable and more moderate Republicans will initially come up for possible Presidential candidates, politicians whom most Americans and the majority of Republican voters would support. But the "Tea Party" and its financial backers will crank up the propaganda machine, spend millions of dollars on smear ads, and in the end instead of having reasonable candidates, a fresh set of out of touch, unreasonably conservative, ideological candidates will get set forth instead. Meanwhile the changing demographics of the country will have kept on progressing, meaning less and less of an appetite for politicians stuck in the 50's.

    The result? The GOP will lose once more for much of the same reasons they did in 2008, and 2012. I'll come back from time to time and when 2016 comes and goes I'll come back and say: " I told you so".
