FreedomWorks Statement on the Future of Mitch McConnell

FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon released the following statement after the press conference with conservative groups on Sen. Mitch McConnell’s performance and future:

“It’s time for new leadership. Mitch McConnell has been a failure in the Senate and has cost Republicans almost a year of victories. He has demonstrated that he either does not understand the frustration coming from conservatives and the urgency of passing key legislation – or he does not care.

“He failed to repeal ObamaCare with his majority in the Senate. The House has passed the REINS Act and the Financial CHOICE Act, but McConnell is exerting no energy to get those to the floor for a vote.

“Now we are focused on tax reform. The House has passed its budget, and Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady is ready to work. Yet again, the Senate is not moving. They even left for a week during crunch time."

The conservative groups sent a letter (below) to Sen. Mitch McConnell.
