McCONNELL: US Taxpayers Should NOT Be Paying Benefits to Americans Who Refuse to Work

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.10.21

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell weighed-in Monday on April’s disastrous jobs report; saying taxpayers should no longer be funding people unwilling to work due to the CoVID-19 pandemic.

“We should not still be taxing the Americans who are working to fund continued extra benefits for those staying home,” said McConnell.

 

“Virtually every one discussed very real difficulties in finding workers to come back and fill these positions. Almost every employer specifically mentioned the generous job benefits as a key force in holding back our economy,” he added.

 

“It’s May of 2021. Vaccines are available. There are millions of jobs open!” he concluded.

 

'FANTASYLAND': McConnell Says It’s ‘Inconceivable’ 67 Senators Will Vote to Remove Trump

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.19.19

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment frenzy Tuesday; saying “it’s inconceivable” that 67 Senators will vote to remove President Trump from office.

“It’s inconceivable to me that it would be 67 votes to remove the president from office,” McConnell told reporters during the third day of the public impeachment inquiry.

 

McConnell made similar comments last week.

“I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate,” McConnell told USA Today.

“Nothing is happening because House Democrats seized with Trump derangement syndrome are consumed with this argument with the president,” he said.

McConnell made similar comments last week; telling reporters “I will say I’m pretty sure how it’s likely to end. If it were today, I don’t think there’s any question it would not lead to a removal.”

Meanwhile, House Democrats refuse to commit to a formal timeline of their investigation into the President’s dealings with Ukraine.

“I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to the president’s tweets and the legal implications of them. I just think that was totally wrong and inappropriate and typical of the president,” Pelosi told CBS News.

“I have no idea,” she responded when asked if the process could drag-on into 2020.

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez SLAMS Mitch McConnell, Says He ‘Doesn’t Want to Save the Planet’

Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on Sen. Mitch McConnell Tuesday; bizarrely suggesting the GOP leader “doesn’t want to save the planet” and will be “drinking oil in 30 years.”

“What McConnell’s doing is that he’s trying to rush this bill to the floor without a hearing… without working through committee — because he doesn’t want to save our planet. Because he thinks we can drink oil in 30 years when all our water is poisoned,” Ocasio-Cortez reportedly said.

Ocasio-Cortez was referencing McConnell’s recent decision to bring her ‘Green New Deal’ to a full Senate vote Tuesday; saying “I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal.’”
