Dems Admit They Block Legislation to Not Give Trump “A Win”

Democrats are proving they are the party of obstruction by recently admitting they are holding off on passing any significant legislation so as not to give President Trump “a win.”

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D., N.J.) expressed frustration with her fellow Democratic colleagues at a recent town hall, admitting that they block legislation because they “don’t want to give the president a win.”

Speaking at a Livingston, New Jersey, town hall last week, Sherrill revealed the “shockingly different mindset” of congressional Democrats who prioritize resisting President Donald Trump over passing legislation that could help their constituents.

“When I go, you know, I’ve gone up to people and said, ‘I need to get this piece of legislation passed,’ and they say ‘Oh yeah, we just passed it,'” Sherrill said. “I said, ‘Yeah, we just passed it. I need the Senate to pass it and I need the president to sign it,’ and they said ‘Well, we don’t want to give the president a win.'”

Sherrill’s comments contrast with Democrats’ longstanding criticism of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) for blocking Democratic initiatives in the Senate. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) unveiled a visual representation of McConnell’s “legislative graveyard” in June, accusing the Kentucky Republican of blocking legislation for political gain.

According to National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Michael McAdams, Sherrill’s admission contradicts Democrats’ push for bipartisanship in the Republican-held Senate.

“Mikie Sherrill’s comments confirm that House Democrats would rather block President Trump from getting a win than deliver solutions for their constituents,” McAdams said. “Voters deserve better than this partisan hackery.”

Sherrill in 2018 became the first Democrat elected to her suburban New Jersey district, which Trump won narrowly in 2016, in more than 30 years. She will likely face Republican challenger and tax policy attorney Rosemary Becchi in November.

    I hope the American people realize what we are paying those in the Democratic party to do nothing and still make more than the “average” working person. This is disgusting to allow a single part or body of OUR government to stall passing anything that could improve the life of the working voters who for some dumb reason put them in office. The money spent could clean up Nancy’s homeless mess in San Francisco by building tiny houses for them , repair our crumbling roads & bridges , make our schools as nice as our prisons …. get the picture?

    Melt down all political Democrats. They are all committing a form of Treason & Sedition ! Laws must be introduced that consider known lying by politicians, as illegal. Because history will prove that Adam Schiff has been known for lying to the American people, more than anyone in History. WE will call the law “The Schiff Law” ? This law, like committing a crime with a gun, automatically claims 2 years in prison, on top of the crime. The Schiff Law, should provide Federal Jail or Prison, for “30 Days”, no exceptions !

    It is so obvious that this is happening, why is anyone surprised. The democrat party does not stand for anything that will help the people. Everything they do is to stop President Trump from succeeding and helping the people in our country. The politicians were elected to make America a better place for the people not to block anything that will help us. We need term limits and we need them now. This is not supposed to be a career position where you are in politics for years and years. We need new blood and ideas in politics. The longer you are in politics the more out of touch you are with the people and what they need.

    Americans that is the reason we must all rally around republicans and defeat the democRATS in 2020, they have sat on their a**es and done nothing constructive since they gained the house in 2018, it will do no good to reelect Trump if we don’t elect republicans to back him up, the house and senate will have to be republicans in order to keep this country a republic and not a socialist hell hole, also the democRATS have promised to raise taxes, confiscate our guns, give illegals free entry into the US, maybe tear down the walls erected to keep drug cartels and illegals out and give illegals free medical on the taxpayers dime, why should the taxpayers pay for medical insurance for illegals and pay for them to get food stamps, they are not citizens but they will be if the democRATS have their way

    If there were some way to get an actual film of the representative saying this, it might make a very good political ad for the Republicans. I think most Americans might be as disgusted as I am by the notion that Democrats are refusing to write any legislation, because they don’t want to give Trump a win. Of course, any winning would be by the citizens of America, not Trump. Pelosi likes to claim she has passed many pieces of legislation and they died in the Senate, but this is more bovine excrement. She has written laws which allow convicts to vote, which allows illegal immigrants to vote and which gives voting rights to sixteen year old, freshly brainwashed, kids. She’s right, it died in the Senate and for so many obvious reasons-the most significant reason being it would be unconstitutional as voters are supposed to be citizens (14th amendment to the Constitution). She sat on the USMCA bill (replacement for NAFTA) for almost two years because she didn’t want to give Trump a win. After she failed in her attempt to impeach Trump, she quickly approved it and sent it to the Senate as a way to show Democrats were doing more than just impeaching. She and her cohorts are snakes, very like the one Eve met in the Garden of Eden.

    Again, they could care less about doing the job they were elected to do and are being generously paid to do for the American people. All they care about is themselves and their power. This is pitiful. Please remember this when you go to the voting booth. Vote straight Republican. We need to vote this traitors out of office.

    Mitch McConnell admits he blocks legislation to not give Democrats a win! He’s been doing it for more than a year now, while Dems approved NAFTA 2.0 for the president.

      Please begin paying attention ! The new trade agreement our President negotiated with Mexico and Canada was completed in 2018,it represents 150000-500000 new jobs for American workers.The USMCA sat on Speaker Pelosi desk for 13 months…

    This may nor the correct to place this, but I have a question that no one seems to want to address. We know that a number of Congress when behind the President’s back and went to chat with the leadership of Iran. We also know that an unknown number Iranian leadership has come down with coronavirus. The question is: Why in hell aren’t our Congress personal in quarantine? Oh I forgot, they are better than everyone else so, it isn’t possible for any of them to come down with coronavirus but they don’t care if they pass it on to others. They may as well as stay home as they haven’t worked for their voters in the last year or so.
