House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted a “McConnell’s Graveyard” poster, listing several legislative items, written on tombstones, that have been – according to Pelosi – been blocked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The list included the For the People Act, the Equality Act, the Paycheck Fairness Act and Gun Violence Prevention:
@SenateMajLdr is so obsessed with blocking votes on commonsense solutions passed by the House, he’s taken to calling himself “the Grim Reaper.” But Americans are tired of waiting – they want action on their priorities now. #ForThePeople
McConnell’s response was swift, telling Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that “she’s got it right,” referring to Pelosi.
“She’s got it absolutely right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi.”
“I am indeed the ‘Grim Reaper’ when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over the House with overwhelming Democratic support, and sending it over to America,”McConnell added. “Things that would turn us into a country we have never been.”
“None of those things are going to pass the Senate. they won’t even be voted on. So think of me as the Grim Reaper,”McConnell had said.
