McConnell Torched After Blocking Debate On Infrastructure Bill: ‘He Wants People To Die In a Bridge Collapse’

People on social media are trashing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) after he took to the floor Monday to demand any debate around the infrastructure bill be stopped

As revealed by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), the Republican strategy is to slow-walk all legislation until after the 2022 midterm elections. So, when McConnell and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) protested starting the floor debate, it made some wonder if they were slow-walking the bill for exactly that reason.

No Republicans have supported any of the major legislation proposed over the past six months under Democratic rule, leading many political prognosticators to assume that they will oppose Biden’s infrastructure bill as well.

Over the weekend, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), whose state is suffering from horrible infrastructure problems, threatened that he would leave town in order to stop Democrats from passing the bill.

Naturally, internet users are furious. Check out some reactions to McConnell’s move below.
