Mitch McConnell – (R – KY) Senate

 
Mitch McConnell
Mitch McConnell

McConnell was first elected to the Senate in 1984. That year, he was the only Republican challenger in the country to defeat a Democrat incumbent, and the first Republican to win a statewide race in Kentucky since 1968. McConnell’s landslide victory in 2002 is also one for the record books: On November 5, he won a fourth term with 65 percent of the vote, the largest margin of victory for a Republican in Kentucky history. The previous record was held by the legendary Senator John Sherman Cooper. On June 27, 2005, McConnell became the longest-serving Republican Senator from Kentucky, again breaking a record previously held by Cooper.

    1 in 10 jobs are tied to the auto industry and he wants to let the auto industry fail. It is time for the people of Kentucky to get rid of him. Write this man, he is not looking out for the american public. He works for us, we do not work for him. Its time he felt what its like to have to look for a job.

    Get him out!

    And no I do not work for the auto industry.

    Mitch, how can you be so adamant against this auto bailout when everyone knows wall st has you in their pocket. how many yuppies were saved in the AIG bailout? without hard working Americans you fat cats and yuppies might have to actually do some real work.

    The senate with your leadership should make sure that a very substantial part of this stimulus bill is directed toward a revamping of our intrastructure-put the men who do the manual work back to work-thre men who pour the concret-drive the trucks-do the carpenter and steel work-they have families-they will spend thir pay-thxs

    I think that the state of Ky. needs serious help. I have never seen a state treat people so poorly in all my life.I am a very sick man I have number of different health problems.And because the area I moved to is plegued with a prescription drug abuse problem! This has left me unable to recieve demerol,which happens to be the onley pain medication that my body will allow me to take and even that has to be an IV not oral I have heard every exuse in the book why I cant have this medication.From its a narcotic,it has bad side effects, it doesnt work.All of which is false exept that its a narcotic.I have the right to some kind of pain management and I feel that the honest to goodness good but sick people of Ky are suffering because of a bunch of so called illeagle drug runners or as Im begining to find out maybe there just in pain and cant get the meds they need legally. And thats where the problem starts If a Dr. cant distinguish a drug addict from some who is truly in pain and responsibly takes his or her meds.then we are all in serious trouble.Does anyone know how to help or someone who could get the ball rolling please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Mitch McConnell is not good for America. His goals are not for the good of America. He is only dedicated to the Republican Party and wealthy Americans who must line his pockets for his support. Politicians like Mitch should be outed. He doesn't work for most Americans.
