“We had rabbits when we needed tigers.” — Ronald Reagan writing in his diary of congressional Republicans
LLPH Endorsed Matt Bevin (R-KY SEN CAND)
Sometimes being a backbencher and doing nothing is bad enough. But when you get active in undermining freedom and become famous for the “Kentucky Kickback”, it is time to retire you. That’s our message to Minority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell.
This past week, Senator McConnell orchestrated the worst cave of the GOP in America’s history. This one was almost worst than the fiscal cliff deal he authored in December 2012. Senator McConnell is always out to undermine conservatives and never shows up when he is needed. He is always MIA during the fight and ready to cave when the fight gets too difficult. Essentially, he is NOT a leader…he’s the white flag bearer. It is time to retire him and send him back to Kentucky with his lousy current score of 36% (F). The state that sent Senator Rand Paul (A+) should not send an F senator.
That is why we need Matt Bevin in the Senate TODAY!
Here’s what he stated during the Defund Obamacare fight led by Senator Ted Cruz:
“Like so many other crucial fights, Mitch McConnell has caved to Harry Reid on Obamacare and is refusing to fight to defund this disastrous legislation,” Matt Bevin said. “There is really no difference between Mitch McConnell and Alison Grimes – both would vote on the side of Harry Reid. I am proud to support conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz in his fight to defund Obamacare, and I promise the people of Kentucky: I will never cave to Harry Reid.”
We need another Liberty senator who will stand with conservatives like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, etc. in the United States Senate.
On Immigration: “Matt is committed to prioritizing the fiscal, economic, and security interests of law-abiding Americans and taxpayers. He will work beyond the platitudes and demand that effective enforcement measures are implemented and the magnets that attract illegal immigrants are eliminated. An effective plan that stops the failed cycle of amnesty would include immediate enforcement of all the laws on the books, allowing states like Kentucky to enforce federal immigration laws without fear of reprisal from a rogue administration, and cutting off welfare benefits to those who come here illegally.”
Mitch McConnell on the other hand sat back and did nothing…allowing the Gang of 8 Amnesty bill to pass and arriving late in the game to just vote no. That’s not the kind of senator we need.
On Education: “Matt is a passionate supporter of school choice, and will actively fight to inject our broken system with badly needed competition. He also believes we need to repeal No Child Left Behind and give states and towns more local control over their education systems.”
Mitch McConnell was already surrendering long before with his yes vote for No Child Left Behind: http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=107&session=1&vote=00371
On Foreign Policy: “America has the strongest military in the world and we must keep it that way. But we cannot be reckless in how and where we use that strength. As a veteran, Matt personally appreciates how important this is. Before voting to send our soldiers to war, Matt will be guided by two key questions: Is it in our national interest and is it in keeping with our constitutional principles? Matt will oppose all engagements that do not meet these two fundamental criteria. Anything less is unfair to the soldiers who put their lives on the line and unfair to the taxpayers that pay the bills.
Matt will also fight to reform our broken foreign aid system that sends billions of taxpayer dollars to entities or countries that support terrorism and don’t enhance our interests. Finally, Matt will fight against any foreign treaty, such as the New START and LOST treaties, that weaken our sovereignty and appease our enemies.”
Mitch McConnell was mostly MIA on the fights against terrible foreign treaties and has supported foreign aid to rogue nations in the past. He continued to do so until Matt announced a primary challenge, and then McConnell was all Mr. “I’m Against Foreign Aid”…an election year politician is the last thing we need.
On Liberty: “Matt believes we have the right to defend our country and our allies when our security and freedom are being threatened, but we cannot sacrifice our constitutional principles in the process. To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin, if we trample on our liberty in the name of security, we will have neither liberty nor security. Matt will fight to protect our constitutional freedoms, including rolling back the Patriot Act and limiting the government’s ability to engage in unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens.”
Mitch McConnell was out and about supporting the Patriot Act and undermining Senator Paul’s fight to protect our liberty.
On Earmarks: “We have to do more. Matt will actively fight for a permanent ban on earmarks.”
Mitch McConnell=Kentucky Kickback. That’s all that needs to be said.
On Spending/Debt Ceiling: “It is clear we can’t trust Congress to follow through on its promise to cut spending “next year” or “next month.” It’s time for taxpayers to hold our politicians accountable. That’s why Matt supports passing a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution that will force Congress to balance the budget every year and to keep spending at or below historical spending levels. Matt will also refuse to vote for a debt limit increase unless we make substantial spending cuts and reforms. This would include having a plan agreed upon by the President and the US Congress that balances the budget in 10 years of less.”
Mitch McConnell has sat around MIA during the fights to reign in government spending. And during his worst moments, he has led the caves and surrenders to Harry Reid. He openly attacked conservatives like Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for working to defund Obamacare. Mitch McConnell is a backbencher at best and a liberal at his worst.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. MATT BEVIN WILL LEAD THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM AND WILL BE A TREMENDOUS ALLY FOR AMERICANS ACROSS THIS NATION!
