The Six Most Powerful RINOs In The United States Senate: Thad Cochran (6 of 6)


Thad Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi has spent over 40 years in Washington. His first stint was in the House of Representatives from 1973 to 1978. After being elected to the U.S. Senate in 1978 he has been a long-standing member of both the Agriculture and Appropriations Committees. He currently serves as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee and sits on the Rules & Administration Committee. Before he was elected to Congress, Thad Cochran served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy.

Although a Republican, Cochran has always worked closely with Democrats to expand federal government and to increase spending. In Washington he is regarded as a big-time pork barrel spender; so much so that he has often been referred to as the “King of Pork.”

Cochran does not take stands for the issues that make up the very core of the conservative movement. This has been evident in his willingness to consistently vote to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, his unwillingness to support conservatives against Obamacare, and in voting for amnesty for illegal aliens.

As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Senator Cochran has consistently opposed welfare reform and has dissented from conservatives on tax cuts. He even attacked his conservative primary challenger, Chris McDaniel, for supporting an essentially foundational GOP fiscal agenda.

Cochran has been disappointingly liberal on issues such as guns, abortion, and immigration. This is coming from a Senator from a socially conservative state like Mississippi. Cochran has betrayed conservative voters on many social issues, such as his support for embryonic stem cell research and as well as taxpayer-subsidized abortions.

Despite being a military veteran, Cochran has consistently supported treaties that weaken U.S. standing in the world, and he has opposed efforts to hold the U.N. and Iran accountable.

Over the course of more than 40 years in Washington, Senator Cochran has cast numerous liberal votes and has led liberal initiatives on fiscal, social, and national security issues. Despite four decades as a Republican Senator in Washington, Thad Cochran has failed to provide conservative leadership on almost every conservative issue.

And Now… Here Are The Most Liberal RINOs In The United States Senate

  • artificialpalm

    Time to put these hypocritical charlatans out to pasture.

    • mspatdev

      Yes and they are over 65 -70 years of age.

      • NPDeeDee

        The phrase “older than dirt” comes to mind!

        • mspatdev

          Yes, also they have dementia.

          • Gerry Costa

            You still don’t have it right – ms. What all six are worried about is losing their golden fleece that they built up over the years. They are afraid if Trump is elected their little games are over and their pockets, which are wide open to any corporation or donor, will be sewn shut and some accountability will be the order of the day.

      • Gerry Costa

        Don’t knock age ms — you will be there sooner or later.

        • Not A Farmer

          Yes we will be their age one day. But I will be retired and giving the reigns over to the more energized youth.

    • Gerry Costa

      Every last one of them !!!

  • Stan Joy

    McCain, McConnell, Graham, Hatch, Blunt, Cochran, remember these names folks. These, especially men have for years have been leading the RINOS–Rrepublicans In Name Only”. This is what we get when we continue to vote these people back in time after time, even though they never did what they said they would do. It’s beyond time that we start pulling together and take our country back, what say you??

    • mspatdev

      I have known each one of them and argued with the Utah liberal Hatch. He was more for the demo’s then the GOP. I haven’t voted for him for quite awhile. John Mccain is a bullie in the senate. The young people come in and he is out to get them and tell them you don’t vote that way, well I like them to vote the GOP way and not the demo’s. All six of you have been trying to condemn the USA and have it obama’s way. You may not be respected in your states. The demo’s have the most dangerous socialist in Congress. REMEMBER THAT CAPITALISM IS WHAT MADE AMERICA, SOCIALISM NEVER DID AS IT RUIN THE USA.

      • ron buice

        I have to agree with Trump about McCain. I have had two of McCain’s “top-gun” hot-shots work for me after they came back from Vietnam. You would have to hear their stories of “death-defying” jet jockying and dancing with Surface-to-air missiles over N. Vietnam before returning to head for the O-club to celebrate their great missions! They were nothing more than special delivery men and did nothing else. John may have stayed out a little to late the night before he zigged when he should have zagged. Too bad for him but hero he is not. No problem feeling sorry for his suffering but if his captors had have been Japanese in WWII, he sure would not be lavishing in special treatment and wealth as he is now. Shame on him for being a turncoat (again)!

    • Bill

      There was a time when our news media actually informed us of the facts, the truth which they actually researched to be the truth before they put it out there. Now their bias which they learned in our liberal schools of higher learning ( what a joke ) is obvious to any one with just a half a brain left.

    • Gerry Costa

      The voters in this country have been programmed to think they need career politicians in these offices. I have said for years that we need a businessman to lead this country NOT a career politician who will keep the status-quo so these people get very wealthy while we fall further and further into their man-made cess-pool.

  • Ranchman

    So here we have the 6 most liberal Republicans in the Senate. What do they all have in common beside that? Each and every one of them has been in public office, elected by the U.S. voter, for decades now! How can that even be possible?!? Why are we voting for these schmucks??? Americans get the government they deserve every time they pull the lever at the voting booth. Vote for liberals and you get the destruction of our freedoms, the passage of unconstitutional laws, the shredding of the Bill of Rights, and the total ruination of America and American sovereignty. Wake up America!

    • Bill

      So beside the obvious fact that through our public indoctrination system the ones that vote have been dumbed down to the point of not having an inclining of common sense, you actually believe that when you vote on these electronic machines that you’re vote was actually counted towards the one you clicked on?

      • Gerry Costa

        Great point – Bill. In 2012 I asked the clown standing by the voting machine — how do I know if what I put in actually comes out that way — he went away like I had a rash .

    • lou

      Low information voters

    • ron buice

      Who’s paying these whores?

      • lou

        Obama with insider trading thats why they do as he say’s




    • Wildeagleone

      And I would suggest the impeachment papers are to be initiated NOW in the event that effing Hillary gets the nod so we can get rid of her immediatels

  • Julie A

    You notice the one thing these RINO’s all have in common… They’ve all been in Washington far too long. The longer they are there, the more out of touch and corrupt they become.

  • Zoe2010

    silly to have comments for each one of these rinos – it’s the same story for each – all been in too long and they have become appeasers or paid puppets – don’t want to work/fight to keep their oaths of office to uphold the Constitution and the laws of this country…

  • lou

    Paul Ryan and any one who opposes Trump or Cruz

  • 1bobolds2

    PLEASE – If these ” RINOS ” are in your district , vote them OUT or recall them – !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Conshana

    I’d say these individuals are poster boys for term limits, for all Congress Critters~!

  • tnetcenter

    RINOs got to go!!!

  • mark


  • harrydweeks

    Term Limits Trump, Term Limits a must.

  • BlueViolets

    I don’t see single face among them that I would trust.

  • Dffallis .

    They might as well add Cornyn to that list, along with several others who always send out “stock emails” telling their constituents how hard their fighting, only to turn around vote like Demonrats.

    • justme35

      We have one of those in NH named Kelly Ayotte. Ran as a Tea Party candidate and notice she is always with John McCain and Lindsey Graham. She is a BIG disappointment!!! Wish someone would run against her in the Republican Party.

  • buddman

    Term Limits will stop this Nonsense

  • ICorps

    The obvious response is for conservatives to destroy the Republican Party–and replace it with a party that is truly conservative and actually in opposition to the Democratic Party. The Republican Party, originally a third party, was on hand and ready to take the place of the collapsing Whig Party.

    Conservatives have both the political nucleus and the leader to replace the Republican Party: the Tea Party and Donald Trump!

  • Sherry Johnston

    I’m through voting for this fool. Please someone else
    please run

  • Gerry Costa

    If the voters in their states vote them back into office then they deserve what they get. These 6 and more are NOT republicans any longer — they are members of the demoRAT/rino party.

  • flicker66

    A democrat impersonating as a republican

  • Rodger K. Shull

    SHIT CAN ALL OF THEM. they are past the age of making a reasonable decision, the USA does not need SENILITY to make choice for the USA CITIZENS, an you know that every decision made, is the 1st question they ask, where is the $$$$ for us. we need that incentive under the table money to make the decision,

  • General “Bull” Krapper

    They look like a white-collar police lineup. Be tough to pick out the crook. — Stay Well, Safe, Free & Brave

  • truepatriotintx

    The one thing that they ALL have in common is that they are all “Career Politicians”. We have done this to ourselves by putting these people in office term after term after term. WE have to fix it.

  • Not A Farmer

    These men are old. They are stuck in the past. We need term limits. We need new energized ideas and implementation.

  • Patricia T.

    They all need to be replaced! We need term limits.

  • Wildeagleone

    I can only say that I have them in my sights and will by pass them on the ballot when their names come up

  • JBRoux

    Tad Cockring, you have a special place for how you won your last election against a good opponent, just to RINO things up for a few more years, just remember that special place will be waiting.

  • chillbox

    Forcibly retire him

  • TAM44

    They are what I call closet democrats and the worst of the worst. May they all croak and ASAP to clear the earth of their stench.
