🚨🚨🚨 GOP DANGER
The GOP has a problem that is about to become a bigger problem.
Elise Stefanik, who President Trump signaled he supports as a replacement for Liz Cheney, has been on the wrong side of every major issue that defined the Trump presidency. Yet again, it appears a group of people sold the President on a candidate who he would not support if he had known her record. I hope he might reconsider. This is not the record of someone who should coordinate a united message for the House Republican Conference.
Stefanik voted against President Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 — the signature piece of economic legislation that fired up the economy.
She co-sponsored a pathway for Dreamers and amnesty called the USA Act.
Stefanik not only voted against funding President Trump’s border wall, but also voted to terminate Trump’s emergency declaration to fund the wall and to override President Trump’s funding of the wall. In fact, Stefanik voted 6 times to fund the government without money for the border wall.
It’s not just taxes and the border wall.
Stefanik voted to oppose President Trump’s lawsuit to fight Obamacare. She voted to override President Trump’s ban on transgender troops. She voted for the far-left “Equality Act” that punishes faith-based organizations. She voted for the radical Climate Action Now Act that would cripple the American economy and forced President Trump to stay in the Paris Climate Accord. She voted to ban drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. She voted to override President Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act as recently as 2020.
She even voted with Democrats against a Republican measure opposing the District of Columbia’s aggressive abortion law.
Why would the GOP put her into leadership? Republicans are going to replace Cheney. Ironically, Cheney voted for President Trump’s policies more than Stefanik. It would be a bad thing to replace Cheney with someone who has an even more moderate voting record.
