The Republicans in the Senate, as a whole, did what was best for the nation. They voted to start Obamacare repeal talks. However, there were three notable traitors who stuck with their Democratic best friends and went against the will of the people.
Two female Republican lawmakers, Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, also voted against the bill as well as Sen. John McCain who shocked everyone with his vote!
Well, President Trump will slowly get his revenge for this and he is not doing this for his personal vendetta he is doing this for us the common American people! Because the disaster called Obamacare was almost dead but thanks to this three traitors we would have to accept that Obama’s legacy is still alive!
Lisa Murkowski is the first that got targeted!
According to The Daily Caller:
The White House was not happy, and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke put the pressure on Alaskan lawmakers.
Zinke called Murkowski and fellow Alaska Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan Tuesday afternoon to let them know that Murkowski’s “no” vote on a health care motion “had put Alaska’s future with the administration in jeopardy,” Alaska Dispatch News reported Thursday morning.
“I’m not going to go into the details, but I fear that the strong economic growth, pro-energy, pro-mining, pro-jobs and personnel from Alaska who are part of those policies are going to stop,” Sullivan told ADN.
Sullivan voted in favor of moving the ACA repeal bill forward, but the Trump administration probably wanted him to put pressure on Murkowski. Federal agencies control 61 percent of Alaskan lands, including those rich in energy and mineral deposits.
The Trump administration is also pushing forward with policies to open Arctic offshore areas to energy development and onshore development in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A).
Zinke also ordered an updated energy resource assessments for the North Slope and the “1002” area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
“We’re facing some difficult times and there’s a lot of enthusiasm for the policies that Secretary Zinke and the president have been talking about with regard to our economy. But the message was pretty clear,” Sullivan said.
The pressure didn’t end there, however. President Donald Trump singled out Murkowski in a Wednesday morning tweet, saying that she “really let the Republicans, and our country, down yesterday.”
Murkowski must have had enough, because later that say she delayed a committee hearing to confirm a Trump administration appointee. Murkowski chairs the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. The congresswoman also holds the purse strings for both those agencies.
If you ask me I think the people of Alaska don’t deserve to suffer because of their representative mistakes but she did deserve this and I hope that they will vote her out so that we can drain the swamp and clean our country of traitors like her!
What do you think did she deserve this?
