SELLOUT?!?! MISSOURI SEN. CLAIRE McCASKILL VOTES WITH REPUBLICANS AGAINST GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN!!!



As a tough reelection fight looms . . . Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill voted with Republicans in favor of a spending bill on Friday night that would have prevented a government shutdown while the overwhelming majority of Democratic Party officials successfully blocked the legislation that needed 60 votes to pass.

More to the point . . .

HARDLINE KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATIC PARTY DENIZENS ARGUE AGAINST SEN. McCASKILL'S BETRAYAL!!!

A perspective from our blog community worth sharing . . .

"She's absolutely wrong if she thinks this will help her win over Republicans. They're never going to like her. In the meantime, Democrats should understand that when it's time stand up for healthcare funding, immigration and our core principals - Sen. Claire McCaskill will vote with the opposition. I won't ever vote for her now that she has completely FAILED to support the values she claims to uphold."

On Twitter, the embattled Missouri Sen. has argued for a political middle-ground amid yet another divisive debate.

For once, I have to agree with the commenter. This will not get her very many Republican votes.

Claire is all about Claire. She does not represent any Missourian. She is posturing to secure a lucrative job with some Republican owned company after she leaves the Senate. She will NOT be re-elected!!!!!!

Hey geezer, you don’t speak for me or anyone else! She represents me! She WILL be re-elected easily. You are as out-of-touch now, as you claimed the dems were in 2016. Get off this ech chamber and you will see the repubtard slaughter in 2018 coming.

Lifelong Democrat here. I have not and will not vote for Claire in any primary or general election since she screwed us over and would not vote for a single payer/public option. With friends like Claire who needs enemies. Fuck her and her republic horse she rode in on.

Claire is trying to save her fat ass. Agree, she does not represent Missourians. Time to vote her fat ass out. She'll get her government pension.

I am not a Claire fan, but it is just possible that she voted the way she did on principle, and not just to attract supporters. Maybe she agrees that to hold the country hostage over the DACA issue (the deadline is still two months away) is simply bad policy.

Claire voter! said...

^^^ Excellent point!

GOP comments on TWO Government Shutdowns during the Obama years - "Republican members of Congress just doing the jobs they were elected to do in resisting irresponsible government actions".

GOP comments on this first Government Shutdown under Trump - "Democrats playing partisanship and shirking their responsibilities"

"Ultimately it's the President's responsibility to keep a government shutdown from happening - he has to get both sides together in a room before it happens and force them to come to an agreement -it's his job."

I have a question for after the shutdown ends.

President Trump, speaking yesterday at a Right To Life March, said "Right now, there are States in this Country where a child can be BORN from his or her mother's womb in the ninth month. This is wrong, this has to change!"

My question is... when Congress gets back to work, does the President only intend to make this illegal, or does he plan to build a Wall?

I think Claire did the right thing in her vote. The shut down is destructive and should have been avoided.

McCaskill also introduced an amendment to protect military, which was rejected by the GOP.

Just minutes after the failed vote, McCaskill introduced a resolution that would have secured pay for service members, noting that Trump has been trying to divide the country by invoking the military and putting the blame on Democrats if they were to go unpaid in the event of a shutdown.

She then said, “I don’t want one moment to pass with there being any uncertainty of any soldier anywhere in the world that they will be paid for the valiant work they do on behalf of our national security.”

McConnell quickly objected to McCaskill’s resolution — and instead left military pay up in the air along with the other casualties of his party’s decision to grind the federal government to a halt.

mccaskill is either the luckiest politician ever or she's made a deal with The Devil. First gwb hands her Jim Talent's Senate seat. Then she and the good ole repub boys give her the hapless Todd Aikens. This time around if it's luck, her's has most likely run out.

^^^Sorry Trumpkin, that’s the truth. Maybe stop watching Fox, and maybe you would know this!

7:25 - I'm the liar?? Go watch the video from the Senate floor.

McCaskill proposed a motion to continue military pay and McConnell shot it down.

The GOP uses the military as a prop and doesn't give a shit about those that serve.

Claire represents the military with honor and respect.

Losers like 7:25 don't.

She voted against your taxes being cut.

She voted against adding an additional $1.5 trillion of national debt.

BTW, these aren't "our" tax cuts. The bulk is going to multinational corporations, Wall Street bankers, and Trump's pockets.
