How much more are we going to take folks?
We all know Mitch McConnell has repeatedly sold out America over and over and over again — someone should look into the situation with his wife….
And we know it often feels like there are more RINOs that Republicans with a spine and a brain!
I am very sad to report 11 Republicans once again just sold us out.
Sold out you, me and America.
And our future.
Under NO circumstances should we have raised this debt ceiling!
Let the Biden Regime FALL under its own weight!
Let it be crushed under its own money printing!
Why are we raising their limit?
Does that make sense to anyone?
I guess it did to these 11 RINOs…..
Take a look:
BREAKING: 11 Republicans have just voted with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling.
This should NOT be so damn hard.

And here is the list:
🚨 11 Senate Republicans vote YES, along with 50 Democrats, to break a filibuster and hold a final vote on the short-term debt limit deal
The vote succeeds 61-38.

Make those names famous and VOTE THEM OUT!
Write them down.
Vote them out.
Here’s more from Politico:
Here are the Senate Republicans who walked the plank: Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), John Thune (R-S.D.), John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) all voted in favor of cloture. None are expected to vote for final passage.
Next steps: Senators move onto final passage of the bill that would raise the debt ceiling through early December. It needs just a simple majority, and Vice President Kamala Harris is expected to swoop in to break the tie.
And from Mediaite:
Enough Republicans joined Democrats on a procedural vote Thursday night to advance the debt ceiling deal, 61-38.
60 votes are needed to overcome the filibuster, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was one of 10 Republicans who voted to proceed.
In addition to McConnell, Senate Minority Whip John Thune, Senator John Cornyn, Senator Lisa Murkowski, Senator Susan Collins, Senator Richard Shelby, Senator Rob Portman, Senator John Barrasso, Senator Shelley Moore Capito, Senator Roy Blunt, and Senator Mike Rounds voted to advance the measure.
The deal itself will be voted on later and is expected to pass.
Some Republicans were publicly critical of McConnell before the vote. Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham slammed him for caving.
VOTE THE TURTLE MAN OUT!
But he votes like a RINO.
