McConnell Says He Won’t Help Dems Raise Debt Ceiling

Senate Minority Leader McConnell seems to be in recovery mode with a recent announcement.

After backing a so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill, now he is saying he will not help raise the debt ceiling.

McConnell added that Democrats are trying to “spend our country into oblivion.”

Make Up Your Mind, Mitch

Going through the bipartisan bill, there should be more than enough additional spending in that bill for Democrats.

They, however, are also hoping to use reconciliation for another $3.5 trillion, most of which has nothing to do with actual infrastructure, or at least the traditional definition of infrastructure.

After offering up his support for the bipartisan bill with more than a dozen other Republican senators, McConnell is now making a stand.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has called on Congress to increase the debt ceiling via regular order, meaning it would need 60 votes in the Senate to pass.

She stated, “[I]ncreasing or suspending the debt limit does not increase government spending, nor does it authorize spending for future budget proposals; it simply allows Treasury to pay for previously enacted expenditures.

“In recent years Congress has addressed the debt limit through regular order, with broad bipartisan support.”

McConnell is not willing to bend that far.

He stated, “I thought my colleagues were thrilled to present another reckless taxing and spending spree to the American people.

“Shouldn’t Democrats be proud to own all the debt it requires?”

If you look at Yellen’s comments, however, that is all part of the problem.

Congress has regularly extended and extended to the point we now find ourselves looking at close to $30 trillion in debt once these bills pass.

At some point, someone has to say enough.

It is a little late, but at least McConnell finally got the memo.

    1. I wonder but I thinkhe is more concerned in saving his political back side than the Republican policies of smaller government and decreased spending.

  1. Our Country needs Republicans to stand up to the DemRATS! Get themselves together, do the right for the people.

  2. Agree with all posts! It is time for the sissy Republicans to grow a spine and fight back! And tell the rinos to stop siding with the demonrats, or—- they will be out on their rumps in the mid- terms! America is watching!

  3. Mitch McCOMMIE needs to be put OUT of OFFICE . He BETRAYS the GOP Party and ALL of us PATRIOTS and REAL Conservative AMERICANS

  4. McConnell is a long time SWAMPER and cannot seem to unite the Republican Party to fight back against the destruction of our way of life, nor the Constitution! There are MANY CURRENT GOP SENATORS WHO COULD DO A BETTER JOB THAN MCCONNELL! HE NEEDS TO GO, HE IS UNRELIABLE AND HAS NO GAME PLAN! ONE SUGGESTION WOULD BE TO HAVE A PUBLIC INVESTIGATION OF JAN 6TH, WITH THE, GOP MEMBERS PELOSI REJECTED, TO AT LEAST PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE AMERICAN CITIZENS! THEN, WE CAN IMPEACH BIDEN WHEN THEY WITH HOLD EVIDENCE FROM THE HEARING! I AM NOT SURE WE CAN RECOVER FROM THE ILLEGAL VOTING METHODS THE DEMS WANT TO INSTALL PERMANENTLY! WE WILL BECOME A “ONE PARTY” GOVERNMENT!

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

Democrats’ open border agenda has fueled a rise in deaths from fentanyl, and now cartels are using “rainbow fentanyl” to target kids.

@jimmykimmel mocked me for saying moms are concerned about it ahead of Halloween.

Is he going to criticize Schumer now?

The DEA warns that Mexican cartels are “killing Americans with fentanyl at catastrophic and record rates like we’ve never seen before.”

Every community has been effected, and people have been killed as young as four months old and as old as 81 years old.
