Corruption seems to seep into every portion of the Republican Senate’s tactics. Per the twitter account of Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, there is a pile of more than 275 bipartisan bills that are stymied on Senator Moscow Mitche’s desk since December 18, 2019. So just who is the evil one in the Senate? Why doesn’t Moscow Mitch simply do his job?
Republicans have to pay for the tax cuts for the wealthy somehow. They have to find money to fund their favorite projects somehow and they now have set their sights on social security, medicare and medicaid.
Weakening the U.S. is now another notch on Mitch McConnell’s belt “red” belt [aka #MoscowMitch]. Even diverting funds from his own state’s Fort Campbell army base isn’t below him. Funds that would have helped build a planned middle school for the children of our folks in uniform. 1
Finally a candidate who will fight for is appearing on the horizon and the people of Kentucky appear to be taking notice. Amy McGrath, a retired US Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel raised in Kentucky, is running for the US Senate to fix Washington and give Kentuckians back their voice. 2

Wow. This moment is so critical that President Obama spoke out.
He condemned Trump for targeting DREAMers to appease his radical anti-Obama base — and called on House Republicans to act.
President Obama is RIGHT. We must stand with President Obama and show Republicans that we REFUSE to let them throw DREAMers under the bus.
Let’s hope they out number those that would like to destroy the lives of many of our future citizens.

Donald Trump just made one of his most misguided, callous, and cruel decisions by ending DACA.
These kids are Americans, and Trump is knowingly inflicting pain on 800,000 of them just to indulge the most hateful elements of our society.
But this isn’t a done deal yet. I just have filed an amendment to the House GOP appropriations bill to block the deportation of these undocumented young peopleI know dozens of Dreamers both in Phoenix and across the country. They’ve served as interns in my office and knocked doors for my campaign. These are friends, some I consider family.
Dreamers are as American as anyone. Their work hard, get educations and contribute to their communities.I’m never going to stop fighting for these folks, and I need you with me.

Over the past eight months, I have had the chance to meet with many young Arizona DREAMers who have been given the chance to pursue the American Dream due, in part, to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. These hardworking men and women have had the opportunity to receive a college education, find meaningful jobs, and most importantly, give back to the country they call home.
President Trump’s decision to end DACA is troubling, and it will do real harm to countless families who will be torn apart. It is callous and detrimental to America’s future.
I am disappointed that the President is unable to see the good that this program has done for the lives of these young people and our economy.
Now more than ever, Congress must act. I am ready to work alongside my Republican and Democratic colleagues to protect DREAMers and pass bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform. 
Arizona Democratic Party:
Donald Trump’s decision to end DACA is a deeply personal and upsetting one for us.
Not only are Dreamers our neighbors, friends and family members — they’re also play integral roles for our party here in Arizona.
Some of our best organizers and brightest young leaders are Dreamers. The idea that these folks, these Americans, now have to live in fear of deportation is devastating. Today was the culmination of a shocking failure in leadership.
Republicans in Washington have repeatedly blocked the DREAM Act from becoming law. And here in Arizona, Governor Doug Ducey and Attorney General Mark Brnovich have stood by while Republicans chipped away at protections these young people should be entitled to in the country they call home.
Now, 800,000 Americans are being threatened for no good reason. This is unconscionable.
Javier Gamboa writes:
As a DREAMer, I’m in complete disbelief that Donald Trump just eliminated DACA.
By ending this critical program, the livelihood of thousands of families like mine are now being threatened.
It’s a hateful reversal of President Obama’s historic immigrant protections — just to appeal to Republicans’ bigoted base and dismantle the Obama Legacy.
I remember the sense of belonging and relief I got when President Obama signed DACA five years ago. His action was clear: There’s a place for my fellow DREAMers and me in America.
Now, everything I’ve worked so hard for since I came to America could be come to an end because of Trump’s cowardness. 
Immigration can be a controversial topic. We all want safe, secure borders and a dynamic economy, and people of goodwill can have legitimate disagreements about how to fix our immigration system so that everybody plays by the rules.
But that’s not what the action that the White House took today is about. This is about young people who grew up in America – kids who study in our schools, young adults who are starting careers, patriots who pledge allegiance to our flag. These Dreamers are Americans in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper. They were brought to this country by their parents, sometimes even as infants. They may not know a country besides ours. They may not even know a language besides English. They often have no idea they’re undocumented until they apply for a job, or college, or a driver’s license.
Over the years, politicians of both parties have worked together to write legislation that would have told these young people – our young people – that if your parents brought you here as a child, if you’ve been here a certain number of years, and if you’re willing to go to college or serve in our military, then you’ll get a chance to stay and earn your citizenship. And for years while I was President, I asked Congress to send me such a bill.
That bill never came. And because it made no sense to expel talented, driven, patriotic young people from the only country they know solely because of the actions of their parents, my administration acted to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people, so that they could continue to contribute to our communities and our country. We did so based on the well-established legal principle of prosecutorial discretion, deployed by Democratic and Republican presidents alike, because our immigration enforcement agencies have limited resources, and it makes sense to focus those resources on those who come illegally to this country to do us harm. Deportations of criminals went up. Some 800,000 young people stepped forward, met rigorous requirements, and went through background checks. And America grew stronger as a result.
But today, that shadow has been cast over some of our best and brightest young people once again. To target these young people is wrong – because they have done nothing wrong. It is self-defeating – because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel. What if our kid’s science teacher, or our friendly neighbor turns out to be a Dreamer? Where are we supposed to send her? To a country she doesn’t know or remember, with a language she may not even speak?
Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision, and a moral question. Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn’t threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us. They are that pitcher on our kid’s softball team, that first responder who helps out his community after a disaster, that cadet in ROTC who wants nothing more than to wear the uniform of the country that gave him a chance. Kicking them out won’t lower the unemployment rate, or lighten anyone’s taxes, or raise anybody’s wages.
It is precisely because this action is contrary to our spirit, and to common sense, that business leaders, faith leaders, economists, and Americans of all political stripes called on the administration not to do what it did today. And now that the White House has shifted its responsibility for these young people to Congress, it’s up to Members of Congress to protect these young people and our future. I’m heartened by those who’ve suggested that they should. And I join my voice with the majority of Americans who hope they step up and do it with a sense of moral urgency that matches the urgency these young people feel.
Ultimately, this is about basic decency. This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we’d want our own kids to be treated. It’s about who we are as a people – and who we want to be.
What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray. What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals – that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation. That’s how America has traveled this far. That’s how, if we keep at it, we will ultimately reach that more perfect union.
The same three GOP Senators are the same folks to grilled Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi.
The Senators are:
These Senators would threaten embassy security if they don’t get what they want regarding moving an embassy. They are inciting worse results then was incurred at Benghazi. Some have described these Senators as “two-faced”.
