The disparity between House Democrats and Senate Majority Leader couldn’t be more different. Sen. McConnell’s pro-growth economic agenda stands in stark contrast with Speaker Pelosi’s all-impeachment-all-the-time agenda in the House. Monday morning, Sen. McConnell sat down for an interview with the folks from CNBC’s Squawk Alley on his economic agenda. One of the things that Sen. McConnell talked about was the USMCA:
The argument for USMCA is very, very compelling, you know: 176,000 new jobs, $68 billion increase in gross domestic product, we have 12 million jobs already related to our trade relationship with Canada and Mexico. So I think it is going to be pretty hard for her not to take it up, even though voting for a Trump trade deal, I gather, is a bitter pill for them.
It’s difficult enacting many bills when you hate President Trump. Things would be so much easier if Democrats put our nation first instead of putting the Resist Movement first.
Let’s highlight the obvious. The economy is being held back by the trade war with China but it’s still growing at a faster pace than anything that Obama achieved or that Sen. Warren’s policies would achieve if enacted. If you think that puts Sen. Warren or President Obama in a favorable light, the average person whose wages have increased and whose 401(k)s are much healthier disagree.
Here’s what Sen. McConnell said about the Republicans’ economic agenda:
What I want to do is spend our time accomplishing things for the American people. USMCA, as Leader McCarthy and I pointed out in The Wall Street Journal today, is something we can agree on, something we ought to do. It makes a difference for the American people. The House spent the last three years harassing this president, and I gather we’re going to get another chapter of that with the impeachment episode. But we need to find other things that actually make a difference for the American people and try to accomplish as much as we can. That’s what I want to do, and that’s what we’re in the process of trying to encourage the House to do by taking up USMCA.
That’s something that the Do-Nothing Democrats haven’t paid attention to. This batch of Do-Nothing Democrats have wasted too much time chasing their ridiculous impeachment nightmare. What’s frightening is that the Democrats’ presidential candidates sound just as nuts. Here’s the entire interview:
