McConnell Rips Apart Democrats Going ‘Supermarket Sweep’ on Coronavirus Bill
“Democrats won’t let us fund hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the green New Deal.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted the Democrats over the pork they want to insert into the coronavirus bill.
He described it as a “left-wing episode of supermarket sweep.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Senate Democrats are treating coronavirus relief bill talks as a “juicy political opportunity.”

McConnell tears into Dems on the flr on coronavirus bill: Why are the American people still waiting?..tax credits for solar energy and wind energy..New emission standards for the airlines…are you kidding me?

McConnell: Is that really something those on the other side are comfortable with really slow walking this…at a time everyone else in the country is pulling us together, they’re pulling us apart..it’s time to get with the program, pass historic relief together.

TIME TO BURN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY DOWN!!!!!
No DEM Left Standing in November!
I think Pelosi and Schumer have made a great start. Nothing wrong with throwing a little gasoline on their fire, though.
Forget the gasoline- someone throw water on those two witches so we can be done with them already!
Till we take back our schools and re-educate our brainwashed, narcissistic young people, the misery will continue.
McConnell needs to MAKE them stand on the floor and literally filibuster-speech this thing out. Just letting them say “I filibuster!” and leave is coward’s play.
Make them stand in Mr. Smith’s shoes so they can see what filibuster truly means
Little wonder why the approval rating of Congress is under 20%
How the GOP hasn’t exploited that is evidence they are part of the democrat party looting class.
It is about power. The Democrat leaders are willing to destroy the economy or see millions die just to put a Win in their column.
They’ve already proven they want to destroy the nation – with open borders.
That’s just one of the ways they hope to bring our country down.
Pelosi and her servant Schumer think that, since this is an emergency, they have extra leverage. And like the amoral swamp creatures they are, they’re going to use that leverage for everything they can get.
The only thing protecting us from the Republicans usual reflex to fold, is Donald Trump. Cross your fingers. This isn’t over yet.
And DEMS are going to find they are the Wile E. Coyote that tried to flip a 50 ton rock – only to find they flipped that 50 ton rock on top of themselves.
Wile E. Coyote vs. Boulders
What they’re doing is the moral equivalent of price gouging during a disaster. But it’s even more shameful than that because they’re supposed to be the leaders in our society.
Not leaders, simply representatives & if any of them understood that we’d likely not be in this position to begin with. Tho a quick look at the electorates that sent them there will unfortunately tell all one needs to know.
Dems and Deep State apparently have no qualms about taking down the country, and entire world, just to try to destroy Trump.
He must be doing something right.
I’ve wondered about the obvious attempt to “take down the country” to get Trump.
With so many at home in self or gov’t imposed quarantine, I’ve wondered if the next thing to go will be the internet? Where broadcast MSM is mostly liberal and even Fox has taken a leftward turn in recent years, the internet would seem to be the biggest means of right/conservative communication. Trump’s Twitter unfiltered. What better way to force people to watch the left’s non-stop barrage of Trump hate and liberal propaganda than to make their medium the only choice by breaking the internet. I wouldn’t say I feel it in my bones, but I wouldn’t put it past the powers-that-be either.
But ALL is backfiring on the DEMS – completely!
Soon the DEMS will be literally running in the streets from their own registered Democrat members…..
I see it coming…….
That’s a better dream by far, Not. 😉 Put me down for the pitchfork brigade! 😉
I know they can’t do this, but i would love it if senators Paul, Lee, Romney, Gardner and Scott could put on Hazmat suits, enter the Senate floor, lock all the doors, and threaten to take their suits off if the Dems who worked on the bill yet voted against it didn’t change their votes.
Then go cough on all of ’em
Great Maker, what I’d like to see is McConnell and the rest of the Republicans tell every doctor, hospital, clinic and citizen of the United States that the democrats simply don’t fucking care about them and would rather see them die a miserable death from the Wuhan virus than actually do anything to help them. And then name names. And addresses. And telephone numbers. Of each and every coward democrat in Congress. And then keep hammering on the subject until the democrats don’t fucking exist as a viable party any longer. Fuck ’em all. Fuck ’em.
That is 100% Fact.
I’ve been reading LI for 5 years now and I’ve never made a comment. I created an account to up-vote this post and respond.
Not a Trump fan (but will probably vote for second time this year) but isn’t it amazing how he forces hacks like Schumer and Pelosi to show their true selves? The Bushes, McCain and Romney were kinder and gentler (being part of the Washington elites themselves) thereby allowing the “progressives” to pull back a from, and hide, their true thoughts yet keep their (small) base happy. Trump pushes back on them and their only alternative is to go further left to satisfy the tiny base while alienating normal, rational voters. I wasn’t sure that this would work out this way in 2016, but the one certainty was the what the “establishment” Republicans had been doing for decades wasn’t working. At least for normal people.
And the ““establishment” Republicans” didn’t care, because they were getting theirs…….
“Supermarket Sweep” – great metaphor.
They’re doing this because they can. The Dems know that the MSM is going to frame this as the Republicans being unreasonable and holding things up if they don’t immediately agree to the Democrat’s laundry list of pet projects.
It’s a win-win for them. They either get all the socialist policies they’ve been pining for over the past couple of years, or they get the MSM blaming Republicans for denying Americans relief.
I think that’s why McConnell was working so hard to get something put together that the Senate could vote on before Pelosi had a chance to put together her Porkulus Deluxe bill.
If the House had put something together first, then the Senate voted it down because of the liberal shopping list attached, you KNOW the media would be howling at the top of their lungs about those evil Republicans denying Americans their relief.
But since he got the Senate version put together first, then it failed cloture on the insistence of Pelosi, the media will give the Dems cover until they can get their wish list assembled. We’ve already seen the first signs of it with the NYT changing the headline to hide the fact that it was Democrat obstructionism that tanked the Senate bill.
The Democratic Party is the true pox on America.
The GOPe is worse. NOTHING is worse than a traitor.
NOTHING is worse than a traitor.
Guess what, the Left believes that too! Look at how they are especially outraged when the party line is betrayed by someone who had been on their side betrays the party line or who they think ought to be on their side — even if it’s only a disagreement over some nuanced bit of ideology. The Left’s penchant for vicious factional infighting is well-known.
Getting back to your assertion, I personally would rank child molesters (and perhaps others) below traitors. Probably not far below, but below.
