On a Scale of 1-10, How ANGRY Are You At Republicans?

Written by  TFPP Writer

Calvin Freiburger reports this week, after months of failure on various convoluted replacement plans, seven Senate Republicans voted against a straight repeal of Obamacare without a replacement (six of whom had voted yes on the same legislation when Barack Obama was president).

Then three Republicans voted against a so-called “skinny repeal” bill that eliminated a few of Obamacare’s most hated provisions (but was intended to be further revised in House-Senate conference, not take effect as-is).

Among both groups of GOP turncoats was John McCain, Arizona Senator and 2008 presidential nominee. I don’t care about his vote against skinny repeal as it was a convoluted scheme that probably wouldn’t have worked anyway, but to torpedo clean repeal was nothing short of a disgrace. On one level it was to be expected since the mainstream media’s favorite Republican didn’t get the nickname “Maverick” for nothing, but it’s still outrageous given how for the better part of the last decade, McCain campaigned on eliminating Obamacare as aggressively as anyone.

Herman Cain’s website has compiled a series of videos spanning the past eight years. They include campaign ads, media appearances, and other public statements demonstrating that McCain railed against Obamacare fiercely and consistently, expressly pledging to the American people that if they rewarded him with continued public office, he would return the favor by doing all he could to undo Barack Obama’s assault on American healthcare.

John McCain said it all, when he was caught saying "let see Trump make America great now", which he uttered after his vote killed the skinny real bill...nice RINO real nice.

12 The rapepublicans have become enamored with the Reichwing. They reject the teachings of Jesus, the archetypal Liberal, and seem to think longingly of Hitler, like their moneybag Koch bros.

Thomas, so you think that Jesus was a liberal socialist progressive fascist who favored authoritarian government? Who is it who hates Israel and favors immorality like slavery, abortion, divorce, homosexuality, pornography, indolence, rioting, pillaging, arson, revolution, murder, rape, illegal immigration, government corruption, and Islam, the hallmarks of the Old Style Mayor Daley Chicago Mob Socialist Democrat Political Machine and Plantation? Also, as for the Koch brothers, I don't hear of them trying to overthrow countries by destroying their economies like George Soros. Nor do I hear of them supporting election shenanigans like colluding with foreign nations on their soil to create false dossiers or to hire foreign enemies to be IT consultants to members of Congress so as to engage in espionage.

But let me ask, do you accept Jesus the Messiah? Do you believe He came as God in human form? Do you think He arose from the dead?

Very well orchestrated, thought out and delivered. I sincerely hope Thomas Baker has the ability to truly understand what you have laid out here because, it is the reality and what MOST REAL Americans have been enduring for these past eight years. Yes, Jesus Christ was God in the flesh. And, he will soon return. Of that, I have no doubt and we, here on this earth have begun the battle to rid ourselves and God's world of the ungodly who have introduced these evil things into our lives. Donald Trump is a good man and he is working to turn our nation, God's nation around. Trump's battle, In my opinion, is like that of David. He is commanding an army yet it seems that he alone is facing the giant. These so called Republicans have become the traitors and I liken them unto Judas. I just wonder how many pieces of silver THEY have been given to betray.

I Couldnt have said it any better.

McCain is busily shooting himself in both feet to satisfy his rage against President Trump. He will carry his hate to his grave and will continue to do anything possible to thwart President Trump's agenda to MAGA and in doing so shows his utterly selfish view about the welfare of the American people. He cares ONLY about himself and his retribution and jealously of President Trump. He has gone from a POW hero to an empty shell of his former self. Very sad....the glaring RINO only gets worse.

What makes this song bird a hero he sold out all the guys in the pow camp with him , he sang like bird telling them everything about what he knew. And god forbid all of my friends and all the real hero's dead and alive who were there would and will disagree with McCain being a hero a coward yes.

John McCain actually makes Ted Kennedy likable. If THAT were possible.

Let me ask, has McCain raped or killed anyone? I don't like McCain's political stance, but I doubt you understand why he opposed the seriously flawed supposed ACA repeal bill. After 7 years of opposing it, the GOP has shown it's either impotent or incompetent. Maybe we need a real political TEA Party.

A better question would be to ask about our anger with Democrats.

I hope McCain dies a slow HORRIBLE PAINFUL death!! I am also fed up with these Politicians on BOTH sides that want to back Sessions over Trump for the simple reason that they know Sessions will NEVER prosecute a fellow Politician!! Lindsay Graham needs to shut the F up about it!!! He already stated he is running on 100 percent legalizing ALL Criminal Illegal Aliens!! Get these POS Politicians like him and Manchin from WV OUT!!!

Well, it'd seem you're not a Christian nor are you an American patriot. I'll bet you never even have served this country. However, would you like to show some cojones and kill some politicians you have such animus for? Watch out what you hope for. Karma can be brutal.

By the way, post your proof where either McCain or Graham said they were 100% in favor of legalizing CRIMINAL (those who had committed felonies while here illegally) illegal aliens.

Roberto, what years did you serve?? I DIS serve my country in Desert storm!!! NcCain DID rat out officers while sitting in his motel like room in a POW camp!!! Also you had better listen to Lindsay Grahams speech on Saturday the 21st when he stated if you do not like Illegal Immigrants and dreamers you had better not vote for me because I am going to make sure they stay!!! An ILLEGAL criminal IS a criminal!! You may believe that in this country we can pick and choose what laws we want to obey but that says it all about you doesn't it!!!! As for Arizona, why do you think they call it a sanctuary STATE!!! Also if McCaine was such a great hero WHY was it his home state that was caught letting the VA MURDER Veterans??? But then you didn't have a problem with that did you!!! Yep, figured you out !!! Libturd POS!!!

Iy's time to make an example of the RINO's and the Republicans who constantly go against the party.I say HURT them in any way possible. Make people remember. (Maybe it will take fake news about these people)? Start with who is lining their pockets, too bad the media doesn't do investigating like the old days when there was still some honesty!

We should absolutely make an example of those Republicans who're unwilling to join in an agenda of restoring the rule of constitutional law in America by ridding the country of the curse of crony capitalism, corruption, and fascist socialism. We need to encourage four things the Republicans ran on; clean repeal and replacement of the ACA, build the border wall/fence, reform the tax code, and protect our people from illegals already here. But I doubt the GOP will do so. They have far too many vested interests in keeping the status quo.

So it's not a matter of supporting a party or a leader. It's a matter of supporting the Constitution and the hope America was founded upon.

By the way, in no way should we act like the progressives. We mustn't resort to canards, innuendos, or prevarications about anyone. But exposing the corruption as you suggest is paramount. We must act in accordance with the principles we espouse.

Angry? No, more like extremely disappointed. This is just a carryover from the last 7 years of the Obama presidency where the republicans gave Obama everything he wanted. That's why I'm no longer a republican. Since I live in the Socialist Peoples Sanctuary State of New York I can still vote republican because, on the federal level, they don't a snowball's chance in hell of being elected.

I'm angry at Republicans because as usual, they're still sitting on their asses instead of doing the President's as well as the nation's bidding. As far as the three traitors who let the nation down last week, I'd kick their god damned asses so far from the hill that they wouldn't dare even say the word politics EVER again!!!!

Angry at the rinos in our govt who claim to be on the conservatives side but actually appear to be on the socialist's side. If we are to succeed under President Trump we Americans will have to get out there in the primary elections and remove these people from our govt and put in their places real Americans that believe in our Republic.

I agree with comments made by both Ted Wark and Tom Schwander. As far as Senator McCain is concerned, I believe his demeanor is provoked by Trump's "anti-hero" comments during the election. Some people don't walk away from something like that; I believe McCain is anti-Trump and will devoid himself of anything Trump proposes - whether the voters like it or not! It's a personal vendetta! And now that he is diagnosed with brain cancer (which I would not wish on anyone) I believe he will not let up! What does he have to lose? And how much longer will he live! (rhetorical questions only).

My frustration and anger with any Republican is infinitesimal compared to the hatred and anger towards "lying, anti-American, anti-God and anti-Constitutional" Democrats and Progressives.
. Our future primaries will clean house of those lying RINOs who side with the above Democrats when "We the patriotic, taxpaying, praying people" hit the voting booths.

Can't get much worse that the Republicans seem incapable of getting it together and are missing the opportunity of the century to fix so many things that have gone wrong in this Country.
Traitors within the Republican party should be dealt with in a Republican way not killing them as the Clinton's have done. Don't really care at this point though, just getter done.

The purpose of the "skinny" bill was to get the issue to conference. It's easy to blame McCain (who I held my nose and voted for in 2008), but don't forget Collins and Murkowski and all the Democrats. One vote was all that was needed. Democrats always put party before country. Schumer says "jump", and they leave their feet and ask "how high." If Trump stops the subsidies as threatened, we may finally see legislators get serious about reform. But it will take a while and require both parties.

I only wish there were a number higher than 10. for years the Republicans have complained that they couldn't do anything because the DanoCrats controlled the Senate and Congress. Now the Republicans Control the Senate, the Congress, The Presidency and the Supreme Count ---- and they cannot even get bill to the floor to be voted on. GET OFF YOUR LAZY ASSES AND GET THE JOB DONE YOU WERE ELECTED TO DO. We the people elected you because you said you would MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. That slogan is becoming a Giant Laugh -- You are doing nothing.

Mr. President, stop all subsidies. Think of it as hitting the mule between the ears with a 2X4 to get his attention. The ACA is a terrible law, and both political parties know it. Congress critters are highly paid and privileged. This is too important to play party rules. Get to work!

The democrats still control the senate and the house. Republicans are so weak that they cannot stand on their own two feet because somehow they had their backbones removed.
God bless President Trump and vote these rino's OUT asap. We as Americans have the opportunity to take our country back from George Soros and his ilk. We must act now or forever remain silent as America goes the way of socialism.

I have a choice at the voting booth..... but, why?????? we might as well let the illegals run the country
