Biden dismisses McConnell's pledge that he's '100 percent' focused on stopping the administration

Source: Washington Post

President Biden on Wednesday dismissed the pledge by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell that his top priority is to stop the administration’s ambitious spending plans, insisting that he will push for compromise and achieve his goals.

“He said that about the last administration — about Barack, that he was going to stop everything — and I was able to get a lot done with him,” the president said in response to questions at the White House.

Earlier in the day, McConnell (R-Ky.) had told reporters that Biden is supporting policies that would turn the United States into a socialist country, a frequent line of attack from the right that the president and other Democrats reject as false.

“One hundred percent of my focus is on stopping this new administration,” McConnell said during an appearance in Georgetown, Ky. “I think the best way to look at what this new administration is: The president may have won the nomination, but Bernie Sanders won the argument.”

Just like he was going to make Obama a one term president.

5. Fool Me Once Comes To Mind

So I'm encouraged.

Technically McConnell is correct, infrastructure is socialist. Even though the work will be performed by for profit companies. And there is nothing more socialist than the military as they couldn't exist without socialist tax money to pay the bill.

7. The reason Republicans constantly fall back on the old scary fear of socialism line

is that they know most of their base is plain old stupid enough to believe it.
