BREAKING: McConnell “I Will Be The Grim Reaper” for Socialist Legislation

On Monday, during a speech in his home state of Kentucky, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not mince words, promising to be the “grim reaper” for legislation deemed “socialist.”

McConnell’s mentioning of “nutcases running around on the fringe” of the left brought to mind Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and her far-left Green New Deal plan, as well as other Democrats who have embraced such radical policies.

“We are having a legitimate debate about the virtues of socialism, and I don’t want you to think it’s just a 28-year-old congresswoman from New York,” said McConnell. “This is much broader than that.”

The Senate Majority Leader went on to explain that five of his Democrat colleagues currently seeking the White House in the upcoming 2020 election “have signed on to the Green New Deal and Medicare For All” plans.

From CNN:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed Monday to be the “Grim Reaper” who will kill what he labeled socialist legislation, including the Green New Deal and Medicare For All measures advocated by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and “nutcases running around on the fringe.”

Speaking at an event in Owensboro, Kentucky, McConnell, who is up for re-election, told his constituents that as Senate majority leader he is uniquely positioned to block socialist policies that he warned many on the left wing of the Democratic Party are pushing.
“We are having a legitimate debate about the virtues of socialism and I don’t want you to think it’s just a 28-year-old congresswoman from New York. This is much broader than that. I’ve got five colleagues in the Senate, five colleagues running for president, who have signed on to the Green New Deal and Medicare For All,” he said.
McConnell has spoken for weeks about what he believes are the pitfalls of the Green New Deal, a proposal authored by Ocasio-Cortez to battle climate change, and the proposed expansion of Medicare, which he pans as “Medicare For None.”
