Katie Porter kills Mitch McConnell for blocking pandemic reduction

MP Katie Porter (D-CA) discharged Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell for blocking pandemic aid as Americans suffer.

Porter tweeted:

You may have heard that Democrats and Republicans agreed to spend $ 900 billion to fund another round of small business loans, support hospitals and key workers, and help the 10 million people who are doing their jobs through no fault of their own have lost. (2/5)

These lawsuits represent the worst of the worst examples of disregard for human life – cases filed on behalf of patients in nursing homes and grocery store workers who have died because the company responsible for their safety made a priority of cutting costs to get them protect. (4/5)

The same McConnell who said President Trump was "100% entitled" to prosecute baseless electoral fraud complaints now refuses to give much-needed relief unless he deprives the weakest of us from having equal rights. This needs to be exposed. (5/5)

Porter perfectly described Mitch McConnell's playbook and overt hypocrisy. McConnell has been running the same game book for years. His motivation is always to protect or strengthen his own strength. The Senate majority leader is currently blocking pandemic aid because he believes it will help Republicans win the Georgia Senate runoff elections.

If Republicans maintain their Senate majority, McConnell will continue to block relief to drag the economy down as part of his plan to get Joe Biden a tenure president.

Rep. Porter was right. McConnell is responsible for those who suffer, and to make him pay it must be ensured that the Democrats take control of the Senate on January 5th.
