This Thursday, The Washington Examiner reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell referred to himself as the “grim reaper” of the Democratic socialist agenda responding to an attack by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The Kentucky Republican senator stated that he agreed with Nancy Pelosi for perhaps the first time in his life in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday night. At a press conference on Thursday, Nancy Pelosi referred to Mitch McConnell as the “grim reaper” and showed off a poster of “McConnell’s graveyard” of Democrat bills that the Senate majority leader has refused to vote on.
“She’s got it right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi,” Mitch McConnell said of the California Democrat.
“I am indeed the grim reaper when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over in the House with overwhelming Democratic support and sending it over to America, things that would turn us into a country we’ve never been.” He added.
The Democrat priorities in the House include the Green New Deal, “Medicare for all,” adopting Washington, and Puerto Rico as U.S. states, and expanding the Supreme Court, Mitch McConnell claimed.
“This is full-bore socialism on the march in the House, and, yeah, as long as I am the majority leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere,” he said.
Republican Senator Mitch McConnell did bring up the Green New Deal, a resolution pushed by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for a vote in March.
The resolution overwhelmingly failed having 0 votes in favor. Every Republican and a few Democrats tallied 57 votes against the proposed measure, while 43 Democrats voted “present” in protest over what they said was a political stunt.
