Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ socialist fantasy this week; saying he will never let that happen as long as he’s running the United States Senate.
“Whether it’s Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, or somebody else, the nominee for President on the Democratic side is going to try and turn America into a socialist country… We’re not going to let that happen,” said McConnell.
“That’s why I call myself the Grim Reaper. We are not going to let that happen…We will not have the Green New Deal and we will not have Medicare-For-None as long as I am Majority Leader of the Senate,” he added.
Democrats are on a path to try and turn America into a socialist country.

GRIM REAPER: McConnell ‘Approves’ NYT Hit-Piece Labeling His Senate ‘Legislative Graveyard’ for Dems
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “approved” a recent New York Times article that called his Senate a “legislative graveyard” for anything accept “confirming conservative judicial nominations.”
“Senator Mitch McConnell has turned his chamber into a legislative graveyard, opting to devote the Senate floor almost exclusively to confirming conservative judicial nominations and Trump administration appointees,” posted the Times Thursday evening.
“I’m Mitch McConnell and I approve this message,” fired back McConnell’s social media account.

“Seemingly by design, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader and self-proclaimed ‘grim reaper’ of Washington, has turned his chamber into a legislative graveyard, opting instead to devote the Senate floor almost exclusively to confirming conservative judicial nominations and Trump administration appointees,” writes the Times.
“So if talks between the United States and Mexico collapse, and Republican threats against President Trump’s promised tariffs actually turn into a legislative rebuff, it would be major break from the past six months. Barely a dozen roll-call votes have been held this year on bills, amendments and legislation, and around 20 bills have been signed into law since January,” adds the article.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke with Sean Hannity last week on House Democrats’ flat-out refusal to “let go” of the Russia investigation; saying it’s now time to “move on” and get back to business.
“You have called this partisan paralysis, breathless, conspiracy theories, a spectacle… I agree with all of that. What is Sen. Burr doing?” asked Hannity, referencing Burr’s latest decision to subpoena Donald Trump Jr.
“The good news is that Chairman Burr has already indicated that the Committee will find no collusion. I think this is going to have a happy ending. I understand the President’s frustration here. The case is closed. The controversy has been concluded. I don’t think the House thinks that,” said McConnell.
NOT ON MY WATCH: Mitch McConnell Vows to be the ‘Grim Reaper’ for ANY Socialist Legislation
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pushed-back against House Democrats’ recent lurch towards socialism this week; vowing to be the ‘Grim Reaper’ for any far-left legislation that reaches his chamber.
“We are having a legitimate debate about the virtues of socialism and I don’t want you to think it’s just a 28-year-old congresswoman from New York. This is much broader than that. I’ve got five colleagues in the Senate, five colleagues running for president, who have signed on to the Green New Deal and Medicare For All,” he said.
“Are we going to turn this into a socialist country? Don’t assume it cannot happen,” he added. “If I’m still the majority leader of the Senate, think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that stuff is going to pass. None of it.”
