Grandma Nan has a beef with Cocaine Mitch.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) demonstrated that she still has a flair for thoroughly pointless grandstanding despite the fact that she can’t complete two sentences in a row without stumbling all over herself.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) unloaded on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday, accusing the Kentucky Republican of effectively turning the upper chamber into a legislative “graveyard.”
The House Democratic leader at her weekly news conference unveiled a poster covered with headstones representing various bills and pieces of legislation that have become stalled in the Senate.
“Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the ‘Grim Reaper,’ it’s part of his political campaign,” Pelosi said at the press conference. “It’s part of the pride he takes as leader of the Senate.”
“None of these things are going to pass,” she continued. “They’re not even going to be voted on.”
Oh no! Not a poster!
Pelosi laments that McConnell’s Senate won’t vote on a smorgasbord of far-left bills that have emerged from the new House Democratic/Progressive majority fever-dream.
Full disclosure: I’m a big fan of Congress not doing anything. Yes, we’re paying them to be there but the best way to keep from being completely fleeced is to make sure they “help” as little as possible.
All of the legislation that McConnell isn’t entertaining was created only to give the leftmedia talking points. The Democrats knew that a Republican Senate wasn’t going to dignify the progressive nonsense with serious consideration. This is how bicameral legislatures ruled by opposing parties work.
Among the bills being left to die is the “For the People Act,” which would give voting rights to felons and an attempt to instantly mint two new Democratic senators by making the District of Columbia a state.
There are also bills advancing progressive positions regarding Dreamers and gun control, as well as the Equality Act, which would essentially destroy women’s sports by opening the floodgates for biological males to compete against biological females at any level. I am the father of a female college athlete and wrote about the egregious unfairness of that back in April.
Most of these bills are mind-numbing assaults on freedom that are embraced by coastal progressives but loathed by Americans who aren’t getting contact highs in legal weed states.
One of the greatest unexpected byproducts of the Trump era is that Mitch McConnell discovered a spine that he hadn’t previously possessed.
By letting these nonsense House bills wither on the gamesmanship vine he is saving America from an assault by a party that has moved so far left that Fidel Castro’s ghost is probably telling them to ease up a bit.
Keep up the good non-work, Leader McConnell. America will thank you for years to come.
