U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
My letter to President Biden this morning on congressional Democrats’ duty to handle the debt limit:
This week in the Senate proved that clumsy partisan jams will not work. We were able to avoid a shutdown because the Democratic majority accepted reality and listened to what Republicans have consistently said for months. Now they will need to do the same thing on the debt limit.
Democrats have taken our roads, bridges, ports, airports, and waterways hostage to ram through an historically reckless taxing and spending spree that would hurt families and help China. The far left is running Congress and the American people are hurting.
Democrats fear for their reelections because of the never-ending series of crises their policies are inflicting on families. The answer isn’t an election law takeover to rig the game. My statement on Democrats’ latest iteration of the same takeover the Senate's already rejected:
These are just some of the unrelated demands Senate Democrats have used to slow relief for workers and families: ✖️ Tax credits for solar and wind energy ✖️ Special treatment for Big Labor ✖️ Airlines' emissions standards This is a crisis. Why is only one side acting like it?
The same Democrats who want to take over everyone’s healthcare and micromanage the entire economy couldn’t even organize their own traditional Iowa caucuses?
