(CNS News) Given the latest failure of the Republican-dominant Senate to repeal and replace Obamacare, the national grassroots organization ForAmerica, which has more than 9 million members, said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) “is politically toxic to everything he touches, even his party’s signature campaign promise.”

ForAmerica President David Bozell, in a statement, added, “Republican Leaders have been given all the leverage they need by voters, and yet Senate Republicans have delivered nothing – effectively ending its majority.”

In the Sept. 26 statement questioning the Senate GOP leadership, Bozell said, “This current Republican leadership team is responsible for one GOP failure after another to deliver on its promises.”

“Because of the lack of results, McConnell sits at an all-time low and politically toxic nine percent,” said Bozell. “There are serious concerns as to whether McConnell and his Leadership team can cut taxes, fight illegal immigration, or tackle any major issue facing our country.”
