Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delivered a harsh rebuke to the Democratic Party on Tuesday after the Iowa caucus descended into chaos the previous night amid “inconsistencies” in reporting voting results.
“The same Democrats who want to take over everyone’s healthcare and micromanage the entire economy couldn’t even organize their own traditional Iowa caucuses?” McConnell wrote in a tweet.
The Iowa Democratic Party failed for hours to report the final results of Monday night’s caucus, sending the Democratic presidential primary into a limbo state as candidates await the final vote tally, expected Tuesday evening. State party officials blamed glitches in a new smartphone app being used to report results — a “coding issue” that resulted in precinct managers calling the state party hotline to report results, only to be put on hold for hours.
“This is not a good night for democracy,” said Senator Bernie Sanders, who led his rivals in initial caucus results. “You know, if I’m a first time voter when I came out and I voted, and the results are not coming in for 16 hours, you know, it’s a little bit disconcerting.”
Most 2020 Democrats are running on a Medicare for All platform, although some, such as former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg, back expanding Medicare but not eliminating private health insurance.
McConnell has criticized Medicare for All as a “socialist” proposal and vowed it will not pass the Senate as long as he is majority leader.
The best thing the Democrats do is initiate disasters.
The old movie, Brazil, ought to be required viewing for those who think the gov’t should take over healthcare.
Because Tuttle was entered instead of Buttle all sorts of bad things happened including state sanctioned execution of the wrong man.
Dems are worse than that.
Even as they make error upon error, they are in denial that their mistakes would kill people.
Ol’ Mitch is presently speaking at length about the horrible, deplorable thing democrats have attempted to do to the American people, without once mentioning the charges against the President, any argument against them, or the fact that no testimony has been heard from known material witnesses because the accused ordered them to defy all congressional subpoenas.
@Greg: That’s because the charges against Trump do not represent reality, only the fantasy some Democrats created where they would remove a duly elected President of the United States. In fact, NO SUCH CRIME has been committed.
But Democrats have conclusively proven they don’t care about the law, due process, truth, facts or the Constitution. That is the harm done to the American people and the nation. It is permanent damage.
Which they had the right to do, legally.
The burden of proof is on the you and your party, dipshit. Go to a communistic or theocratic nation if you want autocratic rule.
