McConnell celebrates big spending bill with Biden in Kentucky | Eastern North Carolina Now

RINO turncoat Mitch McConnell is holding a celebration in his home state of Kentucky with Biden of one of last year's major big spending bills, the fake "infrastructure" bill which spent $1.2 trillion to fuel inflation.  McConnell is showing Republican voters whose side he is really on, and why he did all he could to hurt the Republican Senate candidates in 2022.

By corralling enough Republican sellouts to meet the 60 vote threshold to pass cloture on the "infrastructure" bill, McConnell thereby allowed the Democrats to save their one "reconciliation" slot for another big spending bill, the so-called "Inflation Reduction Act" that, in fact. fueled inflation even more.  That is McConnell's pattern of being an errand boy for left wing Democrat presidents on big spending bills.  He did the same thing to backstab Republicans in the Obama years.

One of the useful idiots that McConnell got to go along in these budget-busting scheme was the utterly useless Thom Tillis.

McConnell has worked much more closely on spending issues with Obama and Biden than he ever did with Donald Trump.  That is because Mitch McConnell is, at heart, a big spender himself.  Biden praised McConnell for his "loyalty" and that just reinforces who McConnell is NOT loyal to, and that is Republican voters.

IT is telling that this site's resident leftie, Big Bob, who has returned after a long sabatical, would support McConnell, who is nothing but a big spender and Democrats enabler. It is telling that while McConnell has the lowest approbal rating of any US politial leader by far, with two recent polls showing his approval in the single digits, and disapproval over 70%, the group in both polls who had the least negative opinion of McConnell were the Democrats. McConnell is their man, not ours. And what is Bob smoking if he thinks inflation and gas prices are down?

But Mitch get elected. He may do all the stuff you say he does but the dude has been there forever. Sometimes you have to listen to the people. Not everybody, just enough to get elected. So far, inflation is down, gas prices down. Considering the war, covid and all the other stuff going on, things aren't that bad.

The big spenders used an extremely creative, indeed Orwellian, definition of "infrastructure" for much of what was crammed into that bill. It should have been called an "inflation" bill instead, because that is more accurate to what it really was, and McCOnnell has his dirty fingerprints all over it.

McConnell organizing 60 votes for the fake "infrastructure" bill allowed Biden to keep his "reconciliation" slot open to use for the even worse "inflation reduction" bill which was actually an inflation PROduction bill.

Mitch McConnell seems to be the second coming of Benedict Arnold. The REAL Republicans were the ones who voted against both of these monstrosities and the omnibus.

Considering the state of infrastructure in the U.S. I'm kind of glad this got done. At some point a crumbling bridge is more important than "owning the libs". Sure lots of Pork in these types of bills, but both parties are guilty of over spending.

Mitch McConnell is a disaster, nothing but a Democrat enabler. He needs to be tarred and feathered and run out of the GOP on a rail. It is way past time to Ditch Mitch.
