Somehow, some way, McConnell got much richer.

That somebody was his second wife's father, who made his fortune in shipping Chinese-made goods to the USA.

Elaine Chao married McConnell in 1993, and was George W. Bush's anti- Labor Secretary for the full eight years.

According to Laura Flanders, her father, James Chao:

had the luck not only to attend one of his country's finest universities with Jiang Zemin, the future leader of the People's Republic, but also to fall in with the immensely powerful Shanghai-born family the Tungs, who shifted their operations to Taiwan for a time.


So Mitch McConnell has moved from the upper-middle class of a lifelong government employee into the real upper class ($20M or so net worth) of someone who married a woman with a rich father.

Who just happened to become rich from his connections with the rulers of communist China.

So they have not reported on the source of McConnell's mega-wealth (relative to the rest of us), and how that source has presumably, for 20 years or so, affected McConnell's positions on "free" trade and its devastating impact on millions of Americans who used to have decent manufacturing jobs.

McConnell and his wife are cheap-labor Republicans who hate the idea of American factory workers making more than $15 an hour.

It is amazing you only point out McConnell and his wealth- perhaps it is as a result of double income from 2 working professionals....jealous?

Thank God an American can get rich while spreading some degree of prosperity to the impoverished Chinese. At least we can bring some of our money back from that country- and the fact he has connections will benefit him when China declares us a part of their country due to the ever increasing Obama debt.

You really believe this shit don't you. Back in the 90s it was the Japanese that were buying up all of America and were going to take over. I guess I should be glad my daughter speaks Japanese.

Keep listening to Beck and Rush and I'll get you a great deal on a new driveway and/or roof. Is your refrigerator running? Do you have Prince Albert in a can?

To dam bad mitch doesn't care about the impoverished Kentucky and America people. You must be so proud that mitch and his foreign born wife are making millions off the slavery in china.

He doesn't care about Kentuckians. He doesn't care if Kentuckians have jobs. Just as long as china has jobs mitch is happy and his Chinese wife is making millions.

Yeah right- he doesn't care. Obama cares that why he will tax everything he can so he can help the poor, build/buy his coalition and put you all on his plantation/reservation of sheeple. He can then manipulate you when he needs your vote.

First destroy the economy, secondly borrow ourselves into oblivion, third make private insurance so unaffordable that everyone can't afford to buy it and business can afford to provide it, so everyone ends up on state controlled medicaid. YAY, BARRY !!!

2014 the coming of the next great business and financial crisis, brought to you by the DNC and the White House.

DOLTS.

Speaking of lying and not caring about the american people try this on for size....

How’s This “Hope & Change”: 7 Million Americans Will Lose Insurance under Obamacare … What Happened to you can Keep your Heathcare Coverage?

THE LION LYING KING: So much for the promises of President Barack Hussein Obama and that you can keep your insurance and doctors with the advent of Obamacare. NOT IF YOU CAN’T KEEP YOUR JOB OR THEY PAY THE PENALTY INSTEAD.

As it turns out, former Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was 100% correct, they did need to pass Obamacare in order to find out what’s in it. According to the CBO,***->-> because of Obamacare 7 million American workers will be pushed out of their job based insurance coverage.

Instead businesses are going to opt to pay the penalty to the government rather than providing insurance coverage for their workers.>>> The 7 million affected is>>>> nearly twice as many that was initially estimated by the CBO. Really? Who did not think that a business would rather pay a penalty that was less than the actual amount it cost to cover an employee? This was the entire reason why the Obamacare penalty was made so low, to entire businesses to drop insurance coverage and push their employee’s on the government insurance dole. This is the first step to universal, government controlled health care.

LIAR: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!



President Obama’s health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

CBO said that this year’s tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they’ll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.

But the non-partisan agency also expects fewer people to have to pay individual penalties to the IRS than it earlier projects, because of a better method for calculating incomes that found more people will be exempt.

THE OBAMA LIE … So what happened to Barack Obama’s promise to the American people? Obama told the American people and was reelected based on the following promise lie. He stated that no matter how we reform health care we will keep the following promise to the American people.“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period! No one will take it away. No matter what”. What a bold faced lie. Every promise that Obama made that his Obamacare was going to do has done just the opposite and they knew it all along.->-> It did not lower the cost of insurance coverage, it increased it. It did not make doctors and hospitals became less administrators and accountants, it made them more. It did not create 100′s of thousands of more jobs, it caused businesses to lay off workers also HERE, HERE and HERE. It did not increase employee take home pay either. It has all been one big Obama lie and an uninformed Honey Boo Boo, envious electorate bought it hook, line and sinker.

(From good healthcare to medicaid- thanks Barry !!)

Never get tired of the fucktards using Hussein as if its negative because its the same as the wrongly accused leader of Iraq. If his middle name was Simon would it need to be printed in some trash blog?

Fear mongering works on the old and dimwits. The rest of us voted against giving the rich what little they haven't stolen already. Send you donation to Beck for your daily snake oil.
