McConnell: Washington Democrats Ignoring Backlash to their Multi-Trillion-Dollar Nightmare

LOUISVILLE, KY.U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following statement after House Democrats voted to advance Washington Democrats’ reckless taxing and spending spree:

“It says everything about today’s Democratic Party that House Democrats held our country’s basic infrastructure hostage for months over a reckless taxing and spending spree that would hurt families and help China.

“The radical left refused to fund America’s roads and bridges unless they got to advance a multi-trillion-dollar nightmare that would make inflation even worse, hammer Americans with tax hikes, make us more dependent on less affordable energy, and let the same woke bureaucrats who don’t want parents involved in education extend their reach into infancy and early childhood. Clearly Washington Democrats have ignored the statement that voters made on Tuesday and may need to relearn the same lessons next year.

“President Biden can now sign the Senate’s bipartisan infrastructure bill into law. Meanwhile, House Democrats just walked further down the plank for a far-left messaging document that nobody even pretends could pass the Senate or become law in its current form.”
