Mitch McConnell ruled out his Republicans’ support for President Joe Biden’s new infrastructure plan on Thursday, but made sure that the proposal would pass with democratic unity in the Senate.
At an event in Kentucky, the Republican Senate chairman denounced the $ 2.5 trillion infrastructure proposal to exacerbate debt and raise taxes. McConnell said that despite the bipartisan reach of the White House, the bill would not get a single GOP vote in the Senate.
“The package they are putting together now, as much as we want to deal with infrastructure, will not receive any support from our side. Because I think the last thing the economy needs right now is a big, whopping tax hike.” McConnell told reporters.
