Why is Bipartisanship a One-Way Street?

We really need to make Republican members of Congress sign a pledge that they will not engage in gang violence against the party. This secretive bipartisan gang work is getting out of hand.

While working on ways to stop the hemorrhaging in our party from the Schumer/Rubio amnesty gang, I discovered today that Senator Coburn is working with a Democrat gang to advance a universal background check law. To my knowledge, this news came as a surprise to his fellow conservatives in the Senate as well. Who is he working with? Among others, Chuck Schumer! What in the world does Chuck Schumer have over the heads of senators from some of the most conservative states?

In recent years, individual Republican members have embarked on a Benedict Arnold approach to legislating by granting cover for squishy Republicans and red state Democrats to support bills that would otherwise never pass. Instead of working openly with fellow conservatives to draft a statement of principles on the issue at hand, these ‘gangsters’ work in secret with the most liberal members to chart a path for 60 members to pass bad legislation. All too often, these members back away at the last moment and vote against the proposal, something I’m sure Marco Rubio will eventually do with the amnesty bill, but not after the damage had already been done.
