Joe Biden went on and on about how he was going to unite the country. He promised to be a leader for both red and blue states. But we quickly learned that his idea of “unity” meant, “Do what I say or else.” Biden is shaping up to be the most radical, far-left Democrat who has ever sat in the Oval Office. What makes matters worse is that we don’t even believe he’s calling the shots; he’s just rubbering-stamping whatever insane idea the radical left gives him.
Biden apparently wants to “save” America by pushing unprecedented government spending. He’s already doomed our children with a $1 trillion debt. But that is chump change for the man. He has vowed to spend trillions upon trillions, to expand the welfare state and rob as much power from Americans as possible.
The only thing that stands in his way are Republicans. State leaders are doing their part, but it will come down to the Senate. With the Senate split 50/50, Biden needs every vote he can get. And Mitch McConnell gave him some bad news: there’s no way Republicans will vote for his agenda.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Monday that he doesn’t expect any Republican senators will back President Joe Biden’s $4 trillion plans…
“I think it’s worth talking about, but I don’t think there’ll be any Republican senators, none, zero, for the $4.1 trillion grab bag, which has infrastructure in it, but a whole lot of other stuff.” …
“We’re open to doing a roughly $600 billion package which deals with what all of us would agree is infrastructure and to talk about how to pay for that in any way other than reopening the 2017 tax reform bill, which I believe – and all of my members believe – is what created, as of February 2020, the best economy in 50 years,” McConnell told reporters.

McConnell has been frequently criticized by President Donald Trump over his apparent turncoat status in recent months. But it looks like the Republican is holding to his guns over Biden’s spending package. He made it clear that Biden won’t be able to force through his radical plans with reconciliation (the “nuclear option” Democrats used last time), as even a few Democrats aren’t happy about his plans.
So, Biden would need the support of Republicans to get his major spending bills passed. And McConnell has made it clear that no Republican is about to support Biden.
I think it’s safe to say McConnell has no intentions of supporting a plan that will raise taxes sky-high. He was key in passing the historic tax cuts in 2017—tax cuts championed by Trump that helped spur the economy even today.
Although we are coming out of what was a crippling pandemic, Biden wants to hurt the economy even more, with incredibly high taxes. All these “free” programs he’s promising? Yeah, they’re going to hurt you and me big time. Taxes raised on companies and wealth Americans always end up hurting everyone else, one way or another. Biden doesn’t seem to care, because he’s just doing what the socialist left is telling him to do.
The only silver lining is the Senate Republicans refuse to comply.
