Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell has been known for his controversial political remarks since decades. Ever since President Biden took office, McConnell has passed several strong remarks to cast doubts on his ability to lead the nation. He has recently declared that he is devoting all his energies on “stopping this new administration” from changing the future of America.
Despite McConnell’s resolute stance on stopping the administration, President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris remain unperturbed. They stand tall by working selflessly to make the country a better place for its people.
Mitch McConnell’s target is Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan, which he claims will get no support from the Republicans. He further added how his party has “total unity” against Biden as the president is often heavily criticized by Sen. Susan Collins and Sen. Ted Cruz.
These comments were refuted by Biden who pointed out how McConnell had made a similar promise during former Barack Obama’s tenure in 2010, citing “I was still able to get a lot done with him.” When asked about the course of action for the term, Harris replied that she and Biden will continue to work towards solving the issues that plague the nation and impact the residents as a whole.
She further elaborated on how the duo will take an impartial and bipartisan approach to rectify the situation. For this purpose, Harris pointed out Biden’s consistent efforts in arranging Bipartisan meetings in the Oval Office.
In response to Mitch McConnell’s claims, Harris declared that the administration is “sincere and serious” about the idea of working together with Republicans. They will continue to extend these efforts until and unless the possibility of reaching a mutual agreement becomes null.
It is important to note that Biden has been under scrutiny for unveiling the contents of his $1.9 trillion stimulus bill that only cleared the House with support from the Democrats. Several moderates including Collins and Sen. Mitt Romney had also criticized Democrats for leaving them out of the decision-making process.
