Establishment GOP Group To Target “Ideologues”
A new establishment Republican group has been created to attack fiscally conservative GOP candidates who are supported by groups like Club for Growth, FreedomWorks, and Heritage Action.
According to reporter Beth Reinhard of NationalJournal.com, “Defending Main Street” plans to raise $8 million to protect “mainstream” Republicans from “tea party challengers” during the 2014 cycle.
“Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” former U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette (RINO-Ohio) told Reinhard.
Wait … Main Street … hmmmm … where have we heard that term used before by Republicans?
Oh right … the “Main Street Fairness Act,” a massive $23 billion internet tax hike supported by Democrats and fiscally liberal Republicans like Lindsey Graham.
How exactly did that help “Main Street?”
Anyway … if you think the establishment GOP candidates benefiting from this latest special interest group have your best interests at heart, you’re crazy. Like their Democratic allies, these GOP politicians are nothing but welfare statist crony capitalists who support growing government (at the expense of the middle class) in order to continue subsidizing an endless and unsustainable flow of handouts and bailouts.
So unless you’re upper management at a select corporation or a food stamp recipient – odds are this group is not going to be looking out for you.
Bankrolling this effort? According to Reinhard, LaTourette’s group will be supported financially by “the business community.”
Ah yes … the “business community.” We know all about them here in South Carolina.
Obviously “Republican-on-Republican violence” is nothing new … but it is ironic to see so many establishment GOP entities (Karl Rove’s “Conservative Victory Project” is another one) going after candidates whose only crime is upholding the core Republican values of more liberty, lower taxes and less government.
