Joe Biden is headed to Kentucky on Wednesday to tout his radical economic policies, and he’ll be joined by Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
Biden will be in Kentucky the day after the new GOP-led House majority is sworn in to speak about “how his economic plan is rebuilding our infrastructure, creating good-paying jobs that don’t require a four-year degree, and revitalizing communities left behind,” the White House said.
Specifically, Biden will be touting the $1 trillion infrastructure spending package passed by the Uniparty in 2021.
McConnell is slated to host Biden in his home state for this victory lap event.
Also joining Biden and the Kentucky senator are Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D), and Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R), according to a White House official.
McConnell has been facing intense criticism from the Republican base for not just signing onto Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure legislation, but also recently voting for the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending package that includes $45 billion for Ukraine and billions more for other Democrat-led pet projects and woke initiatives.
McConnell’s decision to host Biden to celebrate his major spending bill is at odds with the Republican Party at large.
87% of the Republican base deeply disapprove of Biden’s performance as president, ranging from issues like guns to inflation and crime, according to a recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll.
McConnell also recently received backlash from his own party after declaring that sending money to Ukraine is the Republican Party’s “number one priority.”
“Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans,” McConnell said last month. “That’s how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment.”
McConnell’s turncoat behavior toward the GOP and favorable posture toward the Democrats is well documented.
Earlier this year, McConnell pulled nearly $8 million worth of ad buys in Arizona, effectively kneecapping Republican candidate Blake Masters’ chances in the 2022 midterms.
Last June, McConnell voted in favor of gun control measures following the Uvalde school shooting.
He also helped Democrats pass the massive $1.9 trillion for the COVID-19 corporate bailout in 2021.
Finally, McConnell was silent after Biden proclaimed Trump supporters a threat to the country in his Blood Red speech in September.
No wonder McConnell is meeting Biden this week — the two are thick as thieves when it comes to advancing the establishment agenda.
The Uniparty is alive and well.
