Joe Biden seems intent on ramming his bloated spending agenda through Congress.
Just because Democrats have a razor-thin majority, Joe thinks he can foist the most liberal, expensive policies onto America.
Mr. “Moderate” hasn’t even bothered to make a deal with Republicans in Congress. You’d think calls for unity would mean working with all our lawmakers. But not to Joe.
So, Mitch McConnell just gave old Biden the bad news. From Western Journal:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday not one Senate Republican will support the more than $4 trillion in spending recently unveiled by President Joe Biden…
“There’s more money in there for electric cars than there are for roads, and bridges, and ports, and water lines … broadband, which we would all concede is infrastructure,” he said…
“So I think I can pretty safely say, none of my Republican colleagues are going to support a $4.1 trillion infrastructure package, only part of which is for infrastructure,” he said.
McConnell slammed Biden’s massive “infrastructure” deal, saying not one Republican is going to support what will ultimately cost Americans $4.1 trillion (that number keeps getting bigger, huh?).
The senator explained that Biden wants to spend more money on electric cars than roads, bridges, and other actual infrastructure needs.
Republicans don’t have the best record on spending, but they aren’t fans of blowing through taxpayer dollars in an attempt to make Americans dependent on the government from cradle to grave.
And they definitely don’t like Biden’s astronomical price tag.
But if Biden thinks he can railroad Republicans, using the “nuclear option” to get this done, he might be sorely mistaken.
McConnell mentioned in his speech that several Senate Democrats aren’t too happy with Biden’s bloated spending plans.
So, if Biden wants to get something done, he’ll have to come to the negotiating table.
We know that moderate Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is not pleased with Biden’s radical spending. There might be a few others as well who fear the folks back home could vote them out over such recklessness.
Will Biden realize this and reach out to Republicans so he can have a shot at passing this bill? Or will this be another DOA plan from the Biden administration?
Because those are going to start racking up.
Do you think Biden needs to give up and start compromising?
- Mitch McConnell announced not one Republican will support Biden’s bloated spending.
- He criticized Biden’s “infrastructure” bill for having very little infrastructure spending.
- A few Democrats in the Senate might also oppose Biden’s plan.
