BREAKING: Here is How Senators Were Paid Off (Bribed) to Support Treasonous TPP

If you haven’t finished your breakfast and/or coffee, finish it before reading this. Because anything in your mouth is likely to hit your screen once you see the nasty truth of what is happening in Washington.

To put it simply, the Senate is run by looters. Treasonous looters who care nothing about the constitution, you, me or America. And the record breaking quick passage of the anti-American TPP proves it beyond a doubt.

But what kind of force could convince the Senate, Republicans and Democrats, to betray the American people and hand over power to a foreign government-like body? What could possibly make Senators want to give up power and give Obama the power to render the Senate irrelevant?

Money.

The following lost reveals who much money is flowing from government supported corporations that want to see TPP enacted for their own financial gain. Via The Guardian.

  • Out of the total $1,148,971 given, an average of $17,676.48 was donated to each of the 65 “yea” votes.
  • The average Republican member received $19,673.28 from corporate TPP supporters.
  • The average Democrat received $9,689.23 from those same donors.
  • The amounts given rise dramatically when looking at how much each senator running for re-election received.
  • Two days before the fast-track vote, Obama was a few votes shy of having the filibuster-proof majority he needed. Ron Wyden and seven other Senate Democrats announced they were on the fence on May 12th, distinguishing themselves from the Senate’s 54 Republicans and handful of Democrats as the votes to sway.
  • In just 24 hours, Wyden and five of those Democratic holdouts – Michael Bennet of Colorado, Dianne Feinstein of California (already a proponent but wanting some quick cash), Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Patty Murray of Washington, and Bill Nelson of Florida – caved and voted for fast-track.
  • Bennet, Murray, and Wyden – all running for re-election in 2016 – received $105,900 between the three of them. Bennet, who comes from the more purple state of Colorado, got $53,700 in corporate campaign donations between January and March 2015, according to Channing’s research.
  • Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, who is the former US trade representative, has been one of the loudest proponents of the TPP. (In a comment to the Guardian Portman’s office said: “Senator Portman is not a vocal proponent of TPP – he has said it’s still being negotiated and if and when an agreement is reached he will review it carefully.”) He received $119,700 from 14 different corporations between January and March, most of which comes from donations from Goldman Sachs ($70,600), Pfizer ($15,700), and Procter & Gamble ($12,900). Portman is expected to run against former Ohio governor Ted Strickland in 2016 in one of the most politically competitive states in the country.
  • Seven Republicans who voted “yea” to fast-track and are also running for re-election next year cleaned up between January and March. Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia received $102,500 in corporate contributions. Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri, best known for proposing a Monsanto-written bill in 2013 that became known as the Monsanto Protection Act, received $77,900 – $13,500 of which came from Monsanto.
  • Arizona senator and former presidential candidate John McCain received $51,700 in the first quarter of 2015. Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina received $60,000 in corporate donations. Eighty-one-year-old senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, who is running for his seventh Senate term, received $35,000. Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, who will be running for his first full six-year term in 2016, received $67,500 from pro-TPP corporations.
  • Patrick

    Very disappointed in Tim Scott, the rest of them are total dirtbags so there’s nothing surprising there.

    • JIMNI

      Already lost faith in Lindsey Graham, really disappointed in Tim Scott. $$ does not fall far from the tree.

    The only people who run for office anymore are corrupt souls who hunger for money and power. This country has been completely taken over by the criminal class, and if you think this is bad wait till you see what’s coming after Hussein Obama.

  • Mal Reynolds

    Sold down the river for less than $18k per vote.

      That’s what I don’t understand, is their dignity worth so little?!?

      Scrounging like a mangy mutt in the alley for scraps. Disgraceful.

      • Gary C

        They are all whores. If American citizens knew how government actually works D.C. would be burned down. I challenge anyone to grab your kids and go sit in on your State’s legislative session. You will leave, after you quit vomiting, disgusted.

      • Perservation

        In order to play the the game, each of them (with very few, if any, exceptions) sell their souls for money. The political parties are one and the same. They work for George Soros. They’re all his team players or as I prefer to say, they are Soro’s puppets.

        • IHC

          They are all puppets of the global elite – Wall Street and Chamber of Commerce.

    • OG Mally Bieber

      I guess I knew they were prostitutes, but this is street-walker money. So disappointed.

      • danybhoy

        And there will be no happy ending either.

    • Perservation

      Mal, if you were to multiply that by the numbers of votes they cast on an annual basis, we could be talking about some serious cash.

  • foramerica

    And just think in the next election the low info voters will either put these same corrupted people back into power or they will vote in a new crop of corrupt politicians who couldn’t give a rat’s rear end what happens to America. Our elected officials as a whole are useless people, self-serving and low life individuals. Politician is just a synonym for either liar or traitor.

    • democrat CockRoach

      That’s why we have to flush them as quickly as possible so they don’t get ingrown.

  • spin43

    How much is Cruz and Rubio receiving?

  • RockyMtn1776

    This is nothing compared to the bribes and/or blackmail used by Pelosi on the Democrat Senators to get ObamaCare passed into law. Some caved for cheap, others held out for the big bucks and got it. Ben Nelson, Dem from Nebraska with the Cornhusker kickback, Mary Landrieu Dem from Louisiana hauled in the most, she was called the highest paid ho in America at that time. I’m not saying some of the Republicans are any better, the RINOs leading the pack now. The fact is, we have been sold out by both political parties for exactly the same reasons.

    • DeadMessenger

      Because both parties are leftist. What we need are Constitutional conservatives. Of course, we won’t find any of those in DC or in any state capitol. We’ll only find then amongst each other.

  • OG Mally Bieber

    If I ever win the lottery, I think I’d like to buy me a congressman and a senator.

    • chesterarthur

      Well,yeah,but non-political hookers,at least,don’t look like ‘grandma’ Mitch McConnell.

  • Steve Brown

    Bent. They are all so bloody bent it is unbelievable.
    Fire them all.
    Get some good and honest men and women in the Senate and let’s get some righteousness, some sense of moral rectitude back into politics.

    • DeadMessenger

      They should all make $15 per hour. If you can’t live on that, don’t run for office. They should each be given no more than $100k to campaign with, and all expenditures must be tracked in real time on a website. And, they can’t be on any corporate board for 10 years before, or 10 years after serving. And they can’t charge to give speeches for 10 years after, either. Their personal family finances and IRS filings must be made public for 10 years after, also.

    • Perservation

      You know, Steve, I have to believe many of them enter politics with all good intentions. When they start to see the money exchange hands, it’s only a question of time before they want the same thing.

  • Elaine Farrell

    I want to know WHY Cruz & Rubio voted for it….

    • DeadMessenger

      The answer is clear: cha-ching!

      • sally forth

        imo 20K ain’t a very loud cha=ching

        • DeadMessenger

          That’s what honks me off. These guys are cheap whores, not even expensive call-boys, lol.

        • Perservation

          But if you multiply that by the number of bills they said, we’re no longer talkin’ bout chump change.

    • Perservation

      Elaine, if you read the story above, it answers your questions in the best of terms: it’s called money.

    • demsdoublestandard

      Cruz didn’t vote for it the 2nd time around. Rubio was the deciding vote today and he voted on it without reading it.

    • AmandaTrebiano

      Rubio voted for it because he went RINO when he decided he wanted to be POTUS. Cruz did not vote for it as far as I know.

    Both my sleazy senators are up in 2016 but they won’t be getting my vote or anyone in my families vote for that matter.

    • chesterarthur

      I didn’t think both senators in a state ever came up at the same time.Their terms are staggered.What state has both come up at once?

  • The Boogeyman

    Raw corruption. I communicated my disgust and anger to my senators. We need term limits in the Senate and House.

    Hey! Stop insulting whores! At least you don’t mind getting screwed by one. You get what you pay for. What do you call someone who pays for whores to screw someone else? Tax payers or pimps? Can’t tell the difference anymore. We put these ‘whores’ there so we’re responsible! So keep your pimp hand strong and support your representative!

  • commonsense_is_dead

    As a registered voter in Florida, I have NEVER voted for Bill Nelson. I cannot fathom the stupidity of those who keep re-electing his sorry ass.

  • actionsspeaklouder

    This is just sickening. I’m a republican in Oregon and Ron Wyden keeps getting reelected and he doesn’t even LIVE here. Both he and Jeff Merkley are despicable. I’m not too keen on Greg Walden, the R congressman, either. This country has fallen so drastically that it is heartbreaking. Money, money, money makes the world go around. Money, money, money has killed America.

    Is this really just about money for the legislators? I thought good chance they were being threatened.

  • judyavelsor

    Now what exactly constitutes bribes or payola. That alone shows you why these people want to stay in office. How is that possible.

  • sally forth

    imo to sell America down the toilet these “REPRESENTATIVES” work mighty cheap, with the headline I would have thought millions if not more & their own island……….

  • cajunwarthog

    It’s true, America has the best politicians money can buy.

  • Don’tTreadOnMe

    Doesn’t surprise me, but for the sake of intellectual honesty, I’d like to see the same numbers for those who opposed it. I’d also like to see union contributions for these groups.

  • Perservation

    This is one horribly nefarious situation. We have Rubio, and probably many others, that didn’t read the bill and we have all this money coming into political hands. For some, money overrides everything in life. I guess politicians don’t give a damn about America ~ it’s all about the money. they sold their souls to the devil for fame, fortune and power and they got it at our expense.

  • buff24seven

    Donald Trump 2016.

  • cristo52

    It should read “the following list,” not “the following lost.” And “how much money,” not, “who much money.” Edit this stuff before you send it out, it will add to your credibility.

  • Fred Chittenden

    This is a fine example of why folks shouldn’t be able to run for office (of any sort) while holding office, including running for re-election for the same office. Screw term limits — one and done until a couple years have passed. No more buying re-election with taxpayer money and crony policies.

  • IHC

    This trade agreement will cause these same senators to become ‘obsolete’ and no longer needed because the intent of this agreement is to establish a foreign entity ala European Union that handles every trade agreement involving the US.
    What do we need a congress for when they sold themselves as pawn in favor of the Chamber of Commerce and Wall Street? They won’t have a job after this agreement is approved and signed into law by Obama who will get the only and sole executive power in regard any trade.
    It is also the fast track to dissolve this Republic making her one of many. There will be no more USA; the unlimited illegal invasion is also part of that agreement and will allow this country to be flooded even more with 3rd country individuals taking all jobs in return for very low pay while making the remaining American middle class/workers poor and unemployed.
    Did these traitors or Judases think about the consequences? Do they even care? I guess we have the answers.
    That is why the upcoming election is indeed the most important one and it is that reason that Trump – not part of the establishment plan and groupies – is being vilified.
    He was not factored into the GOP establishment plan.

  • JIMNI

    Instead of closing GITMO let’s spend a few more $$ and expand it. All these SOB belong there with their counterparts. To help pay for the expansion we can curtail all the perks of being an enemy of the State.
