Mitch McConnell's Public Statements

Office: U.S. Senate (KY) - Sr, Republican Majority Leader
Date Title
Jan. 21, 2018 Tweet - "To most Americans, taking care of our military and #veterans, providing #healthcare for needy children, and funding the @CDCgov sound like fundamental responsibilities. To the Democratic Leader, apparently, they sound like hostages ripe for the taking. #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 20, 2018 Tweet - "Here's the difference between the Democratic Leader and the rest of the #Senate tonight: ⬇️ He wants to keep the government shut down for hundreds of millions of Americans until we finish negotiating on illegal immigration."

Jan. 20, 2018 Tweet - "We put forward a noncontroversial bill with bipartisan support that contains nothing #Senate Democrats even claim to object to. It continued funding the federal government and secured the future of #CHIP for the nearly 9,000,000 children that rely on it. #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 20, 2018 Tweet - " .@realDonaldTrump, the House, a bipartisan majority of the #Senate, and the American people cannot begin to understand why the Democratic Leader thinks the entire government should be shut down until he gets his way on illegal immigration. #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "The facts before us are simple. Right now, the Democratic leader has no compromise immigration bill on the table. No bill exists. Why do Americans need to suffer from a government shutdown when he doesn't even have an immigration bill?"
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "I've said it before, and I'll say it again. There is absolutely nothing in this bill that #Senate Democrats oppose, yet they are shutting down the government."
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "The vote to fund the government and the 9,000,000 kids depending on #CHIP should be easy, except the Democratic Leader has convinced #Senate Ds to filibuster any funding bill that doesn't include legislation they are demanding for people who came to the United States illegally."
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "A partial list of what #Senate Democrats will be jeopardizing by shutting down the government over #DACA: ➡ #Veterans' services ➡ opioid treatment centers ➡ death benefits for the families of fallen soldiers ➡ health insurance for nearly 9,000,000 vulnerable children"
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "#Senate Democrats now say that illegal immigration should take priority over keeping the government open at all. Nothing for opioid treatment centers, #Veterans, or the families of fallen soldiers. Nothing for the nearly 9,000,000 American children on #CHIP."
Jan. 17, 2018 Tweet - "The funding bill that we'll take up in the #Senate will reauthorize #CHIP (which covers nearly 9 million children in low-income families) for 6 years. That's 1 year longer than the bipartisan bill that unanimously passed Senate Finance Committee on a bipartisan basis last year.The funding bill that we'll take up in the #Senate will reauthorize #CHIP (which covers nearly 9 million children in low-income families) for 6 years. That's 1 year longer than the bipartisan bill that unanimously passed Senate Finance Committee on a bipartisan basis last year."
Jan. 16, 2018 Tweet - "With no imminent deadline on #immigration, and with bipartisan talks well underway, there is no reason why Congress should hold government funding hostage over the issue of illegal immigration."
Jan. 11, 2018 Tweet - "Well over 100 companies have announced intentions to deliver special bonuses, pay increases, or other benefits to employees as a result of the #TaxCutsandJobsAct. It is a shame that none of our Democratic colleagues -- in the House or the Senate -- voted for #TaxReform."
