Not Republican, not conservative, just Cult of Trump
Elise Stefanik has one of the least conservative voting records in the caucus. Her lifetime score from the conservative group Heritage Action is a mere 56 percent, compared with Cheney’s 91.
Liz Cheney voted with Trump 92.9% of the time, while Stefanik voted with Trump just 77.7% of the time. Indeed, Stefanik steadfastly opposed key elements of the Trump agenda. She voted against Trump’s singular legislative achievement — his 2017 tax reform bill — and against making his tax cuts permanent. She voted to block Trump from withdrawing from the Paris climate accords. She voted to condemn Trump for calling on the courts to invalidate the Affordable Care Act. She voted to overturn Trump’s emergency declaration at the southern border so he could fund the border wall, and then voted to override Trump’s veto of a bill that reversed his emergency declaration.

The CDC’s affirmation was met with celebrations from the journalistic class and the White House, and with laughter from everyone else. — Charles C.W. Cooke, National Review.
