Mitch McConnell Tries To Bribe Kentucky Voters With $1 Billion In Federal Spending

, , 100 Comments


Mitch McConnell was facing a very tough reelection
campaign in his home state of Kentucky, not just because of his protection of Donald Trump,
but also because he really hasn’t done a single thing recently, not just for people in Kentucky,
but for anyone in this country. You know, a year or so ago, he proclaimed
himself the Grim Reaper of any kind of democratic legislation, and he has lived up to that moniker
in the last 12 months and his constituents back home aren’t happy about it. He is rocking a 34% approval rating in his
home state of Kentucky. So what can the guy like Mitch McConnell do,
right? You gotta get people to vote for you in your
home state. This isn’t a national election, it’s a state
one. Mitch McConnell came up with a good plan. Recently, Congress passed two different spending
bills and Mitch McConnell decided he was going to sneak in a little gift for his home state
of Kentucky. Gifts in the two spending bills that amount
to $914 million in federal spending and tax cuts going straight and only to his state
of Kentucky. Nearly $1 billion in giveaways to the residents
of Kentucky’s, Kentucky. Excuse me. It’s a bribe. That’s what this is. This is a bribe. This is Mitch McConnell sneaking in $1 billion
worth of bribes for people in Kentucky. In fact, he even said at a rally last week,
I was directly responsible, directly responsible for these items, letting people know that
it was him and him alone who got you $1 billion in both spending and tax cuts because he just
cares so dang much about his home state. Now forget for a second that obviously, you
know the time the coal miners took a bus to DC from Kentucky to say, Hey, we’re dying
of black lung. You’re not funding the black lung program. Could you maybe talk to us? And he ignored them, sent them back on their
bus and they left without ever getting to talk to him. And I bring that up because here are some
of the items that Mitch McConnell has earmarked for Kentucky, a 410 million for the construction
of the new Rob Lee Rex veterans affairs medical center in Louisville. $314 million for a cleanup of, uh, the gaseous
diffusion plant. A 40 million increase over last year’s funding
level, a tax break for spirit distillers worth an estimated 426 million next year alone and
65 million for the construction of the forage animal production lab. Um, he is also including a little bit of an
increase in coal miners pension benefits. So yeah, I know you’re dying a black lung
and I didn’t want to talk to you, but now I actually need your vote, so I’m going to
up your pension a little bit. You know, please don’t die from black lung
before the 2020 election, so you can vote for me. He also secured a tax break for Kentucky thoroughbred
horse racing industry. So rich people, um, 16.5 million for the department
of agriculture to implement the pro hemp provisions. Mitch McConnell got into the 2018 farm bill
and 61.3 million for new military construction projects at Fort Campbell. So he’s feeding the military industrial complex. He’s giving tax cuts to rich people. He’s given a little bit of money to coal miners
and their pension, and he’s building a, you know, horse stuff, I guess. I don’t know. I don’t see how most of this benefits average
people living in the state of Kentucky. Yeah. You’ve got the Kentucky Derby. Fantastic. Is that worth millions in tax breaks for people
to breed thoroughbred horses? Does that help the person dying of black lung? Mitch, I hope this backfires on you spectacularly. I hope all of this money ends up being a total
waste and that the residents of Kentucky votes you out. And I hope that they understand that this
is exactly what I said it was. This is a bribe by a desperate Congressman
Senator, who’s just trying to keep his job alive and he doesn’t deserve it. And the people of Kentucky deserve a heck
of a lot better than Senator Mitch McConnell.

    Have you looked at the Democrats ever, the democrats promise free everything to everybody except honest legal working US citizens. McConnell may work for his constituents, but he is better than the communist left.

    McConnell is a probably the worse senator ever to represent Kentucky. He is holding up important legislation for political reasons. He's been on the gravy train for too long and it's time he was thrown off.

    No it’s just ridiculous most of it is going to Elaine Chao his wife remember she is transportation secretary and has stock and gravel road pigment and building to the tune of $400,000 just last year that’s where the moneys going,Re-time they put in a bid her stock goes up and then her parents owning a shipping yard or company so that’s where it’s going I feel sorry for the Kentuckians if they think they’re getting anything out of this. And that’s another reason for him to stand behind Trump because supposedly they’re going to drain the swamp . No they’re just draining the tax pair of their hard earned money.
