Mitch McConnell Accuses Biden Of Breaking Promises

( Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is ramping up the pressure on President Joe Biden, heavily criticizing him again during a speech on the Senate floor.

On Wednesday, McConnell — who for a while was hesitant to criticize the president — said Biden hasn’t upheld his promise to be “a president for all Americans” in his first 100 days in the White House.

Some examples of this include the decision to completely shut down the Keystone XL pipeline, which killed thousands of American jobs; the passage of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which was passed unilaterally without one single vote from a Republican in either chamber of Congress; support for House Resolution 1, a bill that would drastically change election laws in the country; and the decision to withdrawal all American troops from Afghanistan by September 11.

As McConnell summarized in his speech:

“The first hundred days have left much to be desired. Over a few short months, the Biden administration seems to have given up on selling actual unity in favor of catnip for their liberal base, covered by a hefty coat of false advertising.”

He followed up those comments by tweeting:

“A major theme of the Biden Administration has been false advertising: Last month, it was the multi-trillion-dollar ‘COVID relief’ bill that spent only 1% on vaccines. Now it’s a multi-trillion-dollar ‘infrastructure’ plan where roads and bridges are almost a rounding error.”

During his speech this week to a joint session of Congress, Biden touted his desire to work on a bi-partisan basis with both Democrats and Republicans. However, his words thus far have not matched with his actions.

McConnell said Wednesday that he believed a lot of the Democrats’ actions were due to their only slight majority in the House and Senate. He said he believed Democrats were rushing through legislation as fast as possible, knowing they could easily lose these majorities after the 2022 midterm elections.

As he said:

“Behind President Biden’s familiar face, it’s like the most radical Washington Democrats have been handed the keys, and they’re trying to speed as far left as they can possibly go before American voters ask for their car back.”

In addition to the rushed-through legislation, McConnell criticized the Biden administration’s handling of the southern border crisis. This has been a hot-button topic for many Republicans, who believe that the president has completely botched a situation that former President Donald Trump had begun to get under control.

McConnell even highlighted the fact that some migrants who have attempted to enter the U.S. have worn shirts that mimick Biden’s apparel from his campaign. He said:

“Democrats have decidedly avoided taking ownership of the results of their own campaign rhetoric on immigration. Reckless mixed messaging has come home to roost in the form of a humanitarian and security crisis on our southern border.

“Yet, through it all, the White House’s foremost concern seems to have been to avoid calling this what it is: a crisis.”
