The Republican Party leadership has shown its true colors for all the world to see. The loyalty of Wall Street Senator Mitch McConnell, as well as most of the rest of the Republican establishment, is to Wall Street and large corporations and to the Koch Brothers. McConnell and the Republicans were willing to put an end to the filibuster against US Supreme Court candidates desired by big business. Neil Gorsuch was the most pro-billionaire, anti-original intent jurist yet selected to the highest court.

Now, let’s see if McConnell will do something to show his loyalty to the Republican grassroots and put an end to the filibuster so that it cannot be used against legislation that is intended to end legalized abortion. The answer, of course, is no he won’t. That’s because McConnell and most of the rest of the Republican Party establishment are loyal only to corporate profits, surging dividends and the stock market bubble that is within a few months of bursting.
No doubt, the Democratic Party establishment is also against ending the filibuster when it comes to legislation. The Democratic grassroots would then demand an increase in the minimum wage to $15, single payer health insurance, renegotiate trade treaties to stop US corporations from exporting US jobs (Republican grassroots would also demand this), and a lot more.
The billionaires who control the Democratic and Republican Parties wouldn’t want to see any of this occur. These things would put downward pressure on their profits, dividends and share prices. It’s Warren Buffett (Democrat) vs the Koch Brothers (Republican), Costco (Democrat) vs Walmart (Republican), etc….
So don’t expect Wall Street Senator Mitch McConnell to put an end to the filibuster when it comes to legislation, especially as it pertains to abortion, even though the Republicans control the white house and both houses of congress. That will never be allowed to happen. The billionaires won’t let it.
