Socialist Democrats have to face another killer bean as Senate Majority Leader vowed to kill all Socialist Legislation. Mitch McConnell vowed on Monday to be the ‘Grim Reaper’, to kill all Socialist legislation.
These Socialist legislation includes the green New deal and Medicare For All proposed by Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
At an event in Owensboro, Kentucky, McConnell told his constituents that he will use his position as Senate Majority Leader to frustrate and block socialist policies been pushed by the left wing of Democratic party.
” We are having a legitimate debate about the virtues of socialism and i don’t want you to think it’s just a 28-year-old congresswoman from New York. This is much broader than that. I’ve got five colleagues in the Senate, five colleagues running for president, who have signed on to the Green New Deal and Medicare For All,” he said.
The Senate Majority Leader has constantly criticised the Green New Deal proposal to combat climate change. The second proposal is the expansion of Medicare For All, which McConnell pans as ” Medicare For None. ”
Both proposals were authored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“I don’t want you to think this is just a couple of nutcases running around on the fringe. This is pervasive policy view on the other side,” he said, noting that his five Senate colleagues are all “credible candidates for the presidential nomination.”
“Are we going to turn this into a socialist country? Don’t assume it cannot happen,” he said. “If I’m still the majority leader of the Senate, think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that stuff is going to pass. None of it.”
