We are lucky we were able to hold onto the Senate in the last election. It turns out that some of the Dems have been trying to do something, other than impeaching Trump. They have been trying to pass progressive legislation. Pelosi pointed this out during her weekly news conference. She claimed Mitch McConnell is the grim reaper, killing all of these bills.
“I just wanted started off the morning to say that Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the ‘Grim Reaper,’ it’s part of his political campaign,” Pelosi claimed. “It’s part of the pride he takes as leader of the Senate.” And As you can see what he wants to bury. None of these things are going to pass, They won’t even be voted on.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi brings a poster titled "McConnell's graveyard" with bills she says Leader Mitch McConnell "wants to bury."
“McConnell, for his part, has been characteristically defiant in the face of the attacks. In a Wednesday interview with Fox News Radio, the six-term Kentuckian noted that he’d dubbed himself “Darth Vader” during the campaign finance battles of years past. And he’s relishing the thought of blocking Democratic proposals like “Medicare for All” and the Green New Deal — a role he sees as “the firewall against socialism.”
“I’ve kind of enjoyed playing off of my enemies over the years, and in fact the ‘Grim Reaper’ title I gave myself,” he told Fox. “Happy to embrace it.”
Republican campaign operatives are also welcoming the Democrats’ messaging campaign, saying it will only help GOP candidates at the polls next year.
“The socialist Democrats highlighting Leader McConnell’s efforts to block their extreme socialist policies is an in-kind donation to Republicans across the country,” Michael McAdams, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said Thursday in an email.”
Pelosi thinks her tactic worked. She thinks letting the public know that Mitch McConnell has been blocking the Dems, is going to rally voters to the side of the Dems.
“We’re very proud of the work that we have done to send over to the Senate, where Mitch McConnell has said he’s the ‘Grim Reaper’ — it’s a Senate graveyard,” she told reporters last week. “We have news for him: It’s alive and well in the public, and he will be hearing from the public, hopefully very soon.”
We should all be thanking the Senate for stopping the progressive House Dems from ruining our country.
