#MoscowMitch Will Cut a Bitch

Infrastructure Week, cont.

Amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch McConnell

Don’t mess with Texas, er, Taxes Joe Biden!

Washington — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy conveyed to President Biden during their Tuesday afternoon meeting that changing the Trump-era tax law by increasing taxes is a “red line” when it comes the president’s infrastructure proposal.

“We’re not interested in re-opening the 2017 tax bill. We both made that clear to the president. That is a red line,” McConnell told reporters after the meeting with Mr. Biden, McCarthy, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

 

Notice how amply be-chinned Mitch did NOT say  anything about being opposed to the stuff in the bill, he just doesn’t want wealthy people and/or corporations to pay for it. Paying for things is for little people.

Politico/Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie:

DEAL OR NO DEAL? — How far apart are Biden and congressional Republicanswhen it comes to striking an agreement on an infrastructure bill? We’ll have a better sense later today, after a group of Republican senators sit down with the president at the White House.

But we already know this: Wednesday’s Big Four meeting accomplished little. The two sides haven’t even agreed on basic concepts yet.

— Following the White House sit-down, “GOP leaders told reporters that they still had to reach an agreement with Democrats over what exactly meets the definition of infrastructure,” as Burgess Everett, Sarah Ferris and Laura Barrón-López note. More on that in their full article

— Republican leaders used the event to reiterate that raising taxes — particularly ones reduced by Trump’s 2017 overhaul — is a non-starter.

In another bit of hot gossip in TBotP:

BUILDING BRIDGES (BUT NOT TO THE GOP) — “‘It’s a risky strategy’: Progressives warn Biden on talks with GOP,” by Natasha Korecki: “A raft of influential progressive and environmental groups has a message for the Biden White House on its efforts to cut an infrastructure deal with Republicans: Don’t say we didn’t warn you. They are sounding the alarms that compromising with Republicans on a scaled-down infrastructure bill — and spending the time that such a deal might require — could make it increasingly difficult to pass the rest of Biden’s sweeping agenda.”

It’s a good warning: wasting time chasing the bipartisan unicorn will stall other priorities, and maybe that’s the Coup Klux Klan’s new-and-improved obstruction strategy? It’s what we saw in the Senate  committee hearing for the For The People Act.

#MoscowMitch again shows us that money is the root of his evil. He will cut a bitch if anyone get near his Precious.

  1. So what #MoscowMitch.

    Biden becoming president was a red line for you. It’s not like you give a fuck about the American people.

    Lincoln Project put out an ad yesterday as soon as the Retards (look it up) voice-voted (no secret votes) to dump Liz Cheney showing Mitch McConnell criticizing Donald Trump as thoroughly and as clearly as Cheney ever did.

    They can redefine obstruction all they want. BUT it’s still obstruction.
