Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) believes that the Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is “yielding to the pressure of the hard left to turn the Senate into a speedway as opposed to a place where things are paused and thought over.”
“The Senate was created on purpose not to function like the House,” said McConnell on “The Faulkner Focus” on Wednesday.
McConnell explained that the Senate is supposed to slow things down and focus on “killing bad ideas,” as well as forcing on bipartisanship, all the things that the Democrats believed in, as long as there was a Republican in the White House or conveniently thrown aside, as soon as they think there’s a chance that they can advance their steamroller agenda, which the American people, by the way, certainly did not give them a mandate to pursue in last November’s election.”
McConnell warned during a Senate speech on Tuesday that”Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin to imagine what a completely scorched-earth Senate would look like.”
