The Kentucky senator said earlier this week that House Democrats’ sweeping anticorruption bill, known as H.R. 1, would never become law.
“This sprawling 622-page doorstop is never going to become law. I certainly don’t plan to even bring it to the floor here in the Senate,” McConnell said of the legislation Monday.
The legislation aims to expand voting rights by creating automatic voter registration and making Election Day a national holiday for federal workers.
McConnell, who as Senate GOP leader controls the chamber’s floor schedule, acknowledged that “there’s always improvements and reforms to be made, but this certainly isn’t.”
McConnell reiterated his position when pressed about why he has only pledged to bring the progressive Green New Deal to the floor for a vote and not the election reform bill.
“Because I get to decide what we vote on,” McConnell quipped.
Arrogant little turtle man.
It so long past time for Mitch McConnell to get his ass voted out of office, that it is not even funny.
There is no real reason he should block this bill unless he is anti-voting rights and pro-corruption.
Oh, I stand corrected, I guess there is a reason for him to be against this bill.
