Mitch McConnell Warns Biden ‘Zero’ Senate Republicans Will Support His Massive Spending Plan


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday not one Senate Republican will support the more than $4 trillion in spending recently unveiled by President Joe Biden. Biden has proposed a $2.3 trillion package that includes infrastructure repairs and other Democratic priorities as well as a $1.8 trillion plan to fund education, child care and more. Biden wants to increase corporate taxes and taxes on wealthier Americans to pay for his plans. During an appearance at the University of Louisville, McConnell said the spending includes a lot beyond infrastructure. “There’s more money in there for electric cars than there are for roads, and bridges, and ports, and water lines … broadband, which we would all concede is infrastructure,” he said. “A whole lot of the rest of this money is for a whole lot of things that have nothing to do with infrastructure.” “So I think I can pretty safely say, none of my Republican colleagues are going to support a $4.1 trillion infrastructure package, only part of which is for infrastructure,” he said. “So what we have offered is to support a more narrow proposal,” he said.
