But Donny has an (R) next to his name, so once respectable Republican leaders just look the other way.

Can you imagine what McConnell, Jim Jordan, Matt gaetz and the rest of the nutjob Republicans would be saying today if Mueller testified last week that Obama/Hillary/Biden willingly accepted help from Russia to win the election? And then asked white house attorneys to fire the AG when he refused to curtail an investigation said election meddling?

Not a single Trump supporter here has the nerve to honestly deny the hypocrisy
"Not a single Trump supporter here has the nerve to honestly deny the hypocrisy"

I don't see ANY hypocrisy.

We SHOULD try to establish working relations with other countries no matter who they are, just as obama and hillary tried to do with Russia.

Why are you against trying to build a hotel in russia?

So meddling in the USA elections is just peachy with you, ok.

Also, how does AMERICA/AMERICANS benefit from a hotel in Russia? It seems only ONE american would. Donny.

You're stretching further than Gumby.

Is that what you feel? or is it a plot you discovered by the RNC?

Republicans believe in constitutionalism. They also understand how Judeo -Christian virtues and values contributed to the development of our nation. There is no conflict in history, but conflict come from interpretation of history.

Essentially you're wrong and your comments are divisive.

Lightbulb McConnell blocks two election security bills

So, Mitch marries a woman from Red China.

Takes megabucks contributions from Putin-connected oligarchs.

Does that make him unpatriotic?

Da, comrades!

States were given $380 million to shore up their election process.
The states are barely doing anything though as only 8% of that money has been spent...$31 million to date.

So why are the Dems making such a scene at the Repubs blocking this bill.
The states haven't made a dent in the money given to them from the last bill.

This bill was pushed by business folks...the voting machine company has been lobbying for this bill...not states crying they have no money. Some Dem got wined and dined by them and put forward this bill.

Blind partisan politics folks. Few, if any of you, would even bother to do a bit a research yourself into this. And you all know that the MSM is biased in favor of the Dems.

I'm having a pretty hard time hunting down those exact bills.
None of the MSM stories gives the bill name/number.

Found about 5 so far submitted by Dems but not sure if any of them were the ones voted one.
I see one of them that was blocked would allocate $780 million to states. No bill name/number given though.
