What is he thinking?!?
During a recent interview Fox News, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) angered Conservatives when he said that there was a “great chance” of reaching an agreement with President Joe Biden on infrastructure.
According to Breitbart, Fox’s Bret Baier asked, “Tell us about that meetings. How do you describe it? What did you take from it?”
McConnell replied, “Well, no staff in there, just the six of us, the vice president was there. We had a very cordial meeting for about an hour and a half and discussed an issue upon which there is a great chance we could get a bipartisan outcome, and that’s infrastructure. I did make clear to the president that we’re not willing to go back and raise taxes.”
He then said, “I think the take away from the meeting, Bret, is that I think both sides would like to get an outcome.”
McConnell added, “I think they want a deal this time. I think they want a deal with us because I don’t think they think they can pass this second effort through a reconciliation package. In other words, I don’t think they can get their own ducks in a row, and so they are coming to us, and that’s generally how you reach bipartisan agreements plus, the subject matter is pretty popular on both sides of the aisle.”
