WATCH: Cocaine Mitch Lights Up Senate Democrats for Charade Vote Blocking Negotiated Stimulus Package
This evening, in uncharacteristic fashion, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put aside his normally calm demeanor and rose in anger when the Democratic Party members of the Senate secured enough votes to stop a Senate Stimulus Package Bill with a vote of 47-47.
“So at a time when the country is crying out for bipartisanship and cooperation, and we saw that over the last forty eight hours when regular members of the Senate, not in the leadership office, not in the Speaker’s Office, she is the Speaker of the House, not the Speaker of the Senate, we don’t have one. We were doing just fine until that intervention,” declared McConnell.
“So I want the American people to fully understand what is going on here. The markets are already reacting to this outrageous nonsense. We have an obligation to the American people to deal with this emergency and to deal with it tomorrow, and if we don’t I want everyone to understand that I have conspicuously avoided turning this into any kind of partisan effort for two days, but it is pretty clear what is going on here…hopefully some adults will show up on the other side of the room that understand the gravity of the situation.”
Senator McConnell finished his fiery remarks by challenging the Democrats in the Senate to “Step Up”.
While the Republicans normally hold a fifty three seat majority, five GOP Senators were not available to vote as they are in self quarantine due to concerns about the Chinese Virus pandemic.
Further negotiations and a possible secondary vote are scheduled for Monday.
