WASHINGTON Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had four freshman
congresswomen chasing him all around the Capitol Wednesday, including New
York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
But the GOP leader evaded the new Democratic reps who visited his Capitol
office, cloakroom, Senate floor and then took the subway to another office
He seems to be running away from us, said Ocasio-Cortez, 29, the
youngest female member of Congress in history who represents parts of the
Bronx and Queens.
She was joined by Reps. Jahana Hayes of Connecticut, Lauren Underwood of
Illinois and Katie Hill of California, who said they represent an activist
freshman class who wont sit still as the record-breaking partial
government shutdown continues.
They are frustrated the House has passed multiple bills to reopen the
government for some 800,000 unpaid federal workers, but the Senate has
refused to take them up.
At this point, the only thing left is for us to make noise and thats
exactly what were doing, Hill said after they dropped off a letter
signed by 38 House freshmen to McConnells office asking him to call a
Eight-hundred thousand people dont have their paychecks, Ocasio-Cortez
added. So wheres Mitch?
McConnell has stood firm that he wont bring legislation to the floor for
a vote unless President Trump will sign it. Trump hasnt budged from his
position that he wants border barrier money included to reopen the
government, which the House bills do not support.
Were all behind the president, McConnell said last week after Trump
visited Republican senators at the Capitol. We think this border security
issue is extremely important to the country.
McConnells staffers accepted the letter the new reps authored and said
theyd pass it along to the leader.
McConnell spokesman Don Stewart rejected the notion that the leader was
hiding from the freshman reps.
No, he was not, Stewart said. Im not even sure he had advance notice
they were coming.
Stewart said McConnell has been busy with meetings, votes and other
obligations throughout the Capitol everyday.
He said the new members were told after their first Capitol office visit
that McConnell wouldnt be on the Senate floor or in his second office but
went there anyway.
Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.
Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.
ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.
Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
