Here Are The 12 “Republicans” Who Voted To End The Shutdown With No Wall

Published

on

The House of Representatives voted in favor of legislation to re-open some government agencies including HUD and the Department of Transportation, but this legislation is not going to be signed by President Donald Trump. Mitch McConnell has made it clear that he will not introduce bills in the Senate that do not have a chance of becoming law through a presidential signature.

Nevertheless, 12 House Republicans voted to betray the president and, in effect, the American people who want a border Wall. Here are the traitors…

  • Peter King of New York
  • Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
  • John Katko of New York
  • Will Hurd of Texas
  • Jaime Herrea Beutler of Washington
  • Elise Stefanik of New York
  • Steve Stivers of Ohio
  • Fred Upton of Michigan
  • Greg Walden of Oregon
  • Chris Smith of New Jersey
  • Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania
  • Rodney Davis of Illinois

McConnell dispelled notions that the situation was similar to the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland, citing the Republican Majority in the Senate at the time. The President’s party controls the Senate this time around, and it increased its electoral majority in the 2018 election.

Liberally-inclined Republican Senators such as Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins could prove integral to confirming a SCOTUS nominee. The latter two have already stated that they wouldn’t vote to confirm a new justice during a presidential election season, even if the President’s party controlled the Senate.

Chuck Schumer is already pledging to block a new SCOTUS confirmation “until we have a new President,” suggesting he’s seeking to block Trump from even making a new SCOTUS appointment during his potential second term.

This Supreme Court battle could be one for the ages.
