Civil War In The GOP? Lindsey Graham Lashes Out At Mitch McConnell

The Republican Party seems to be in a war within itself as Many Republicans are arguing whether struggling Americans should receive a $2,000 check instead of a $600 check.

People like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell believe that raising the check amount means that we will become a socialist nation. On the other hand, Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham believes that the American people need the extra income.

The South Carolina Republican even took to Twitter to lash out at McConnell over his failure to provide enough help to struggling Americans.

In a Senate session on Thursday, Dec. 31, McConnell argued that the sharp increase in stimulus payment amount would be a form of “socialism for the rich.” The top-ranking Republican senator, also a multi-millionaire, offered a relatively out-of-touch perspective of the proposed stimulus increase.

“Borrowing from our grandkids to do socialism for rich people is a terrible way to get help to families who actually need it,” McConnell said.

However, Graham made it clear he blatantly disagrees with McConnell’s stance. On Friday, Jan. 1, he took to Twitter as he argued that the increase is not a form of socialism but rather a necessity.

“With all due respect to my Republican colleagues, a $2k direct payment for individuals and families who are struggling is not socialism,” Graham said. “In my view, it is necessary in the times in which we live.”

“The country is being overwhelmed by #COVID, hospitals are full, and business are hanging by a thread. Direct payments may not be the most efficient way to help people in need but, given the situation we face are extremely necessary,” he continued.

While it is unsure whether Graham believes this or is just tending to President Trump is unclear. Either way, we agree, the American people deserve to be helped and $600 is not cutting it.
