McConnell Warns Pelosi He’s the ‘Grim Reaper’ to the Socialist Agenda
Senate Majority Leader responds to Democratic House speaker's criticisms
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he is "the Grim Reaper" who is here to kill the Democrats' socialist agenda.
McConnell said Thursday night that for the first time in his memory, he finally agrees with Pelosi about something — he wants to stop the push for socialism by the Democratic Party.
Sen. McConnell (R-KY) was responding to earlier swipes from Pelosi made during a Thursday press conference where she laid out the Dems' far-left policy proposals that McConnell is blocking.
Pelosi later tweeted out the graphic of "McConnell's Graveyard," writing:
"[McConnell] 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."

"She's got it right," McConnell said.
"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 continued.
"Things that would turn us into a country we have never been."
"They are on their way to doing some additional things, in addition to things they've already done — the Green New Deal, Medicare For All," McConnell added.
"By the way, you may have mentioned this on your show, but they planned to make the District of Columbia a state, that will give them two new Democratic Senators, Puerto Rico a state, that will give them two more Democratic Senators," McConnell continued.
"And, as a former supreme court clerk yourself, you've surely noticed that they plan to expand to the Supreme Court.
"This is full bore socialism on the march in the House and yeah, as long as I'm the Majority Leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere."
