McCONNELL: Dems Do NOT Have a Mandate to Do This, the American People Are Not Asking For It

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.27.21

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ latest push to pass trillion in new spending Tuesday; telling reporters progressives simply “do not have a mandate to do this.”

“[Democrats] do not have a mandate to do this. They’re acting like this is the New Deal. […] This is a 50-50 Senate, a three-seat majority in the House. The American people are not asking for any of this,” the Republican told journalists.

 

Some members -like Senator Bernie Sanders- are pushing for $6 trillion in new funds.

“In order to address the long-neglected needs of the working class and combat the existential threat of climate change, we proposed a $6 trillion bill. $3.5 trillion is already a compromise,” posted Sanders on Twitter.

 

“It is totally unacceptable that we are the only major country on Earth not to guarantee healthcare to every man, woman and child as a human right. The result of that is we’ve got 90 million people today who are uninsured or underinsured,” said Sanders.

BERNIE’S BUDGET: Sanders Says $3.5 Trillion Needed to Help ‘Workers, Elderly, Children, Sick, and Poor’

Senator Bernie Sanders pushed his $3.5 trillion budget on social media Monday morning; saying the massive spending package is needed to help “working class, elderly, children, sick, and poor” Americans.

“The $3.5 trillion Budget Resolution that I am introducing today will allow the Senate to move forward on a reconciliation bill that will be the most consequential piece of legislation for working people, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor since FDR and the New Deal,” posted the self-described Democratic Socialist.

 

“For too long, Congress has ignored the needs of the working class, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor. Now is the time for bold action. Now is the time to restore faith in ordinary Americans that their government can work for them, and not the top 1%,” he added.

“At a time of massive income and wealth inequality, we will end the days of billionaires and large, profitable corporations not paying a nickel in federal income taxes. Yes. We will finally ask the very wealthy and largest corporations to pay their fair share of taxes,” concluded the Senator.

President Biden pushed his massive $3.5 trillion spending package this week as the proposal stalls in Congress, claiming the bill will “save the planet” and “reduce inflation.”

“Create industries of the future, to win the future, to save the planet. We can do this. This is the United States of America… Never have we failed to meet an objective we set. What’s happening now, is that we’ve set a goal. The goal is achievable,” said Biden.

“I promise you it’s going to create great economic growth, reduce inflation, and put people in a place where people will never have to worry about what we’re worrying about right now,” he added.

 

President Biden’s approval rating dropped to new lows this week over a series of self-inflicted crises impacting the country, including the southern border, Afghanistan, inflation, slow job growth, and his handling of the pandemic.

President Biden’s approval rating dropped to 43 percent amid the fallout of the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday,” writes NPR.

The new statistic is a six point decrease from a poll conducted in August.

“Thirty-six percent of independents approve of the job Biden is doing, compared to 55 percent who disapprove. Meanwhile, 85 percent of Democrats approve of Biden’s job handling, compared to 13 percent who disapprove,” adds the outlet.
