McCONNELL: Dems Too Busy Debating How Much Socialism to Unleash to Look Out for Our Troops

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.27.21

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed his Democratic colleagues at the US Capitol Wednesday; saying progressive lawmakers are too busy debating “how much socialism to unleash” to look out for our troops and veterans.

“[Democrats] are too busy debating how much socialism to unleash on the country to look out for our troops, our veterans and our national security. This unseriousness will leave Americans less safe. It’s just that simple,” said McConnell.

 

President Biden’s approval ratings are in a total free fall heading into the holiday season, with 37% of Americans giving Joe the thumbs-up.

“Just 37% of Americans questioned in a Quinnipiac University survey say they approve of the job Biden’s doing as president, with 52% giving him a thumbs down. The poll was conducted Oct. 15-18 and released on Tuesday,” reports Fox News.

“Adding to Biden’s political peril, just 28% of registered independents give the president a thumbs up on his job performance, while 56% do not. The Quinnipiac survey indicated that Republicans, by a 95%-3% margin, disapproved of how the president’s handling his duties in the White House, with Democrats approving 80%-11%,” adds Fox.

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

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.09.21

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.

BREAK FROM REALITY: Psaki Grilled if Biden Even Understands His $3.5T Package Actually Costs Money

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.28.21

A frustrated reporter grilled Press Secretary Jen Psaki Tuesday over the Biden administration’s massive $3.5 trillion spending package; asking if the White House understands that somebody ultimately has to pay the price for the spending increase.

“Do you guys acknowledge the broader truth that it does cost somebody?? Right? The cost of the investments the president wants to make, they’re not simply a free lunch, right? Whether they’re going to cost people who smoke cigarettes, or businesspeople, or companies, or rich people… The cost of what the President wants to do falls on somebody, right?” asked one reporter.

“There’s a clear difference between what we’re talking about as it relates to taxpayer funds, or funding that would lead to our debt? Right?” deflected the Press Secretary.

 

Psaki faced a another backlash Tuesday after the military’s top brass told Congress they recommended Joe Biden keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan, blaming the entire situation on Donald Trump.

“As @POTUS told ABC, ending the war in Afghanistan was in our national interest. He said advice was split, but consensus of top military advisors was 2500 troops staying meant escalation due to deal by the previous admin. @SecDef, the Chairman, and GEN McKenzie all reiterated,” posted Psaki on Twitter following the testimony.

 

McKenzie and Milley both testified that they recommended maintaining a presence of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

“I won’t share my personal recommendation to the president, but I will give you my personal assessment,” Milley testified. “My assessment was we should keep a steady state of 2500 troops.”

“I do share that assessment,” said General McKenzie.

“I also have a view that the withdrawal of those forces would lead inevitably to the collapse of the Afghan military forces and eventually the Afghan government,” McKenzie testified.
