While campaigning for conservatives’ vote vowing to repeal Obamacare “Root and Branch” it seems that he is really “Bait and Switch”. The first bill as Majority Leader was not the repeal of Obamacare, but the building of a pipeline.

Which is more important to you at a voter? The building of a pipeline, or the repeal of Obamacare?

Has McConnell failed at both?

  1. The Republicans have 54 seats in the Senate; there is no way that Senator McConnell can ever get the Senate to override a Presidential veto unless he gets a number of Democrats to go along with him — and he got eight on the Keystone XL override vote — or half of the Democrats just don’t show up.

    The same is true in the House of Representatives; if all members are present and voting, an override requires 290 votes, far more than the Republican majority has.
