The Biden administration has embraced socialism, partisanship, and backwards reforms at each and every turn.

Right now, the Democrat president wants to pass a cringeworthy $6 trillion dollars in spending. This comes in addition to Biden’s radical push for gun control, endorsement of D.C. statehood, support for putting the federal government in charge of state-run elections, and much more.

Republicans are currently the minority party in Congress; however, November 2022 may change this. In the meantime, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell confirms that he is committed to standing up against the Biden administration, as Townhall reports.

McConnell on the Biden Administration

On Wednesday, the Senate Minority Leader stated in no unclear terms that Republicans won’t just do nothing as the Biden administration runs amuck. According to Leader McConnell, GOP senators are in “total unity” to oppose the radical socialism from the Biden administration.

McConnell has continued holding President Biden’s feet to the fire on a litany of matters. Similarly to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, McConnell notes the differences between how Biden promised to govern vs. how Biden is actually governing.

The Democrat president gave an inaugural address about ending red vs. blue divides; yet, as commander-in-chief, Biden continues to perpetrate these divides by freezing out Republican congressmembers. The president furthermore claims to want bipartisanship, yet he encourages party-line votes and refuses to meet with Leader McCarthy.

McConnell referred to the contrast in Biden’s words and leadership as a “bait-and-switch.” The Senate Minority Leader also maintains that Sen. Bernie Sanders is thrilled with Biden’s leadership as president.

The Infrastructure Factor

Last month, the Biden administration submitted an infrastructure package that is almost completely separate from infrastructure altogether. During a recent press conference, Leader McConnell also called this out as well.

The Senate Minority Leader explained that Republicans would be more than happy to work across the aisle on an infrastructure package; however, in order for this to happen, the legislation would have to actually center around infrastructure and not leftist schemes.

Republicans have since submitted an alternate infrastructure package that is far less expensive and yet much more effective in fixing infrastructure throughout the United States.
