Grim Reaper McConnell Vows To Block Everything If 2020 Brings Us President Biden
Former Vice President Joe Biden is now the presumptive Democratic nominee to become the next President of the United States. He also has a pretty good shot at beating Donald Trump in this election cycle. That matters not to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) though. He does not care about governing if a Democrat is in office. McConnell has one plan and one plan only if a Democrat lands in the Oval Office: Block Everything.
No one should be surprised at this, no matter what a horrible dereliction of lawmaking duty this is. McConnell already participated in stealing a Supreme Court Seat from now-former President Barack Obama by not even giving Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, any kind of hearing. No, instead, McConnell cited some made-up rule to block a perfectly qualified jurist, then rammed two right-wing judicial activists through under Trump.
When talking about what he plans to do should Trump not re-win the White House, McConnell said:
“If I’m still the majority leader in the Senate … None of that stuff is going to pass. I guarantee you that if I’m the last man standing and I’m still the majority leader, it ain’t happening. I can promise you.”
This is why Democrats cannot just focus on taking the White House away from Donald Trump. While he is the most obvious target, there are other Republicans who care too much about power and too little about the rule of law and the will of the American people as well, and McConnell is at the top of that list.
We all have to remember that as we work toward November.
