The entire Republican party is just a whiny bunch of twats:
Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said on Thursday that he won’t attend a White House signing ceremony for a bipartisan infrastructure deal that he voted for and has touted while in Kentucky this week.
“No, I’ve got other things I’ve got to do other than go to the signing ceremony,” McConnell said during an interview with WHAS, a Kentucky radio station, when asked if he would be attending.
McConnell is one of 19 Senate Republicans who voted for the infrastructure bill in the Senate earlier this year. The House passed the bill last week with the support of 13 House Republicans.
But his support for the bill has sparked criticism from former President Trump, who lashed out at the Senate GOP leader as recently as this week, questioning in a statement why “Old Crow Mitch McConnell voted for a terrible Democrat Socialist Infrastructure Plan.”
The crazy party is also lashing out at the 13 House Republicans who voted for the bill, a group that included my representative, David McKinley. I doubt anything will happen to him, but you never know with these lunatics:
It’s the party against critical race theory, “woke-ism” and vaccine mandates.
And now, it would seem, the Republican Party is against bridges and roads.
The ferocity of the reaction against the 13 House members who voted with Democrats on the House-passed infrastructure bill appeared to signal a new stage in the party’s evolution, marking the GOP as so reflexively anti-Biden that even spending on infrastructure — an issue that Donald Trump once obsessed over as president — is too radioactive to support.
It’s a hardening of the party that’s already shaping its approach to the midterms, ensuring not only that Republicans up and down the ballot will be running against the sitting president, but that they will not support anything that might help Biden improve his sunken public approval ratings in the interim.
And they’ll punish any moderate Republicans who do.
“That’s the way the place works now,” said former Rep. Tom Davis, a Virginia Republican who served as National Republican Congressional Committee chair. “That’s what we have devolved to.”
Circular firing squads are my favorite.
God I hate these people.
And while I am at it, this was not really a 1.2 trillion dollar bill. Only $550 billion was new spending. The rest was the usual highway funding bill.
