RINOs in congress get a “reality check” by their conservative counterparts

House Speaker Paul Ryan, along with the other RINO GOP leaders are feeling the heat from their conservative counterparts, and have finally paid the price for their cowardly and tentative support of the “Trump agenda.”

In a dramatic “show-of-force” the conservative wing of the GOP rebelled against the establishment’s inaction regarding immigration and voted down the Republican-sponsored Farm Bill 213-198 and tightened up food stamp provisions, sending Ryan and company back to the “drawing board.”

The growing split between the “establishment” – those fair weather Republicans who use the Trump coattails when it proves convenient for their reelection – and GOP members of the Conservative House Freedom Caucus, who’ve come to realize that “obstructionists” also have an “R” attached to the front of their names.

Before the critical vote, GOP leadership, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., were seen in intense discussions with the conservative lawmakers.

Conservatives within the caucus had already warned the leadership they would withhold their support of the farm bill, including provisions for the food stamp program if an agreement on an immigration bill was not forthcoming.

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Michael Conaway, R-Texas, acknowledged the stunning defeat saying: “We experienced a setback today after a streak of victories all week.”

Adding: “We may be down, but we are not out.”

Conway promised the House would eventually; “deliver a strong, new farm bill on time as the president of the United States has called on us to do.”

The dust-up occurred when the freedom caucus asked for a vote in support of the “Trump agenda” boosting border security and a pledge from GOP RINO’s in supporting the construction of a border wall in exchange for their support of the farm bill package. The RINO’s acting more like disgruntled Democrats refused the offer, and instead proposed the measure “be considered” sometime in “June,” which automatically doomed the farm bill legislation.

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-NC., acknowledged the impasse between the two groups on Friday, concerned that not enough progress is being made in finding a solution on immigration, border security and moving ahead with the President’s agenda.

“We want to make sure we get the right thing done on immigration,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told “Fox News @ Night” on Thursday.

What’s apparent is that the GOP leadership has their own political agenda, which doesn’t seem to be the same as the President’s and both conservatives and moderates within the party are finally raising their collective voices and insisting that the leadership get on board and begin seriously addressing the “DACA” issue, along with border security, before the midterm elections.

At last count, 30 Republicans revolted against the “establishment” killing the bill along with all the Democrats. RINO Ryan promised to bring the farm bill back in the future for another vote.

Currently, the food stamp program helps adults between the ages of 18-59. The program requires part-time work or an agreement to accept a job if offered, as a condition for recipients receiving food stamp benefits.

The program know as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), applies to able-bodied adults 18-49, who are subject to a three-month limit of benefits unless they meet a work or job training requirement of 80 hours per month.

  1. Little PUNK-A$$ Eddie Munster look-alike and his sidekick “Bitch McGobbler” need to get the fuk out of Dodge – preferably thrown out on their asses! They are part of the Godless, Satan worshiping, power-mad, NWO-elitist ghouls that want to control everybody’s lives – ain’t going to happen without a fight; this is why we are experiencing all of these NWO-FBI inspired mass gun control shootings as a way of disarming “US” WTFU, REVOLUTION will be the final SOLUTION against these devils and to think otherwise is to be a fool, an enslaved fool at that! Armr=========================== ? – – – – – – -, we will be needing them against Them, in my humble opinion!

  2. We often know and hear about the Conservation group of Republicans, but NOT very often about the RINOS.
    Why does the TEA Party Group make it a point to advise all who these Republicans are by Name and State.
    For example the above article list the following RINOS:
    PAUL RYAN, R-WS – KEVIN McCARTHY,R-CA – STEVE SCALISE, R-LA – + JOHN McCAIN……..I would sincerely like to know who the rest of the RINOS are??

    • April Featherkile

      I don’t believe that these congressmen were pointed out as RINOs but rather leaders in the party. McCain definitely is but it is debatable of the others. I would like to know as well. Dave Reichert from WA is one for sure.
