Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) criticized President Joe Biden during a Wednesday interview on Fox News for a variety of issues ranging from securing the southern border to reopening schools.
McConnell called Biden’s proposed $1.9 trillion stimulus bill “wildly out of proportion to where the country stands today.”
“This $1.9 trillion bill is the same size as the bill we passed last April, right in the middle of the pandemic,” McConnell said. “This is not the same country we had a year ago. Only 9 percent of this $1.9 trillion is related to health care, and less than 1 percent of this $1.9 trillion bill is related to vaccines. … The vaccines are going out. The economies are opening up. As you just pointed out, a lot of money that was sitting on the sidelines, for obvious reasons, over the last year is about to begin to be spent.”
McConnell later added that schools needed to be reopened, saying, “There’s no science-based reason for kids to be stuck at home now.”
