Shocker: Pro-Biden Republicans Motivated By Secret Donations

Now you know exactly what Donald Trump meant by ‘drain the swamp.’

The Republicans who gifted Biden and the Democrats with a legislative win last week are total scum of the Earth, not worthy of holding office. With their ‘yes’ vote, these so-called conservatives proved they are not interested in winning for America; they’re interested in enriching themselves.

A total of 32 House and Senate Republicans granted Biden with a win on his $1.2 trillion infrastructure package just as Democrat legislators were likely to fold after lack of support amongst members.

In a ‘shocking’ turn of events, a gross majority of said Republicans have been showered with campaign cash from the leading lobbying group behind the bill — the United States Chamber of Commerce.

This is a paramount example of the sick and twisted Swamp culture pervasive in Washington D.C.

Elected lawmakers run for office, grabbing donations from special interest groups, then, after their election, voting for legislation supported by those special interest groups despite their constituents’ opposition.

The Chamber of Commerce spent more than $12 million to lobby so-called Republican lawmakers in the second quarter alone. They spent a jaw-dropping $17.5 million total lobbying for the bill.

And it worked.

Their successful money push resulted in 13 House Republicans and 19 Senate Republicans voting for the first installment of Biden’s Build Back Better framework, which is now being lauded by the White House and the mainstream media as a giant victory for the administration.

Exactly the opposite of what’s needed to crush the Democrats in ’22 and ’24.

The 32 House and Senate Republicans who voted for the bill are:

  • John Katko (R-NY)
  • Don Bacon (R-NE)
  • Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ)
  • Fred Upton (R-MI)
  • Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)
  • Don Young (R-AK)
  • Tom Reed (R-NY)
  • Chris Smith (R-NJ)
  • Andrew Garbarino (R-NY)
  • Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY)
  • Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
  • Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH)
  • David McKinley (R-WV)
  • Dan Sullivan (R-AK)
  • Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)
  • Mike Crapo (R-ID)
  • Roy Blunt (R-MO)
  • Richard Burr (R-NC)
  • Deb Fischer (R-NE)
  • Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
  • Rob Portman (R-OH)
  • Thom Tillis (R-NC)
  • Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
  • Jim Risch (R-ID)
  • Chuck Grassley (R-IA)
  • Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
  • Kevin Cramer (R-ND)
  • Roger Wicker (R-MS)
  • Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
  • John Hoeven (R-ND)
  • Susan Collins (R-ME)
  • Mitt Romney (R-UT)

In a sad state of affairs, only nine of the House and Senate Republicans refused donations from the Chamber in their recent election and re-election bids.

Tillis, representing the swing state of North Carolina, received $15,000 from the Chamber’s official political action committee (PAC) in recent election cycles, the most of any of the lawmakers.

Sullivan, Blunt, Graham, Portman, McConnell, and Collins each have taken $10,000 from the U.S. Chamber PAC in recent election cycles from 2015 to this year. Cassidy, Capito, Burr, Fischer, Murkowski, and Risch have each received $5,000 from the PAC, while Grassley last received money, $1,500, from the PAC in 2016.

Now what do all of these lawmakers have in common?
