Worried for the future of the United States, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is forewarning that any Democrat elected as president would spell doom for the country.
McConnell shared that is the threat of socialism taking over the country doesn’t stem from candidate Bernie Sanders alone, but all Democrats running in the 2020 race.
Speaking with Sean Hannity, McConnell shared that, “Even the [candidates] who declare themselves moderates will say, with regard to health care, that they want the public option. There won’t be any private health insurance if you have the public option because the government will always sell you the insurance cheaper. So, no matter how they choose to characterize themselves, you can bet that whether it’s Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, or somebody else, the nominee for president on the Democratic side is going to be on a path to try to turn America into a socialist country.”
While McConnell is concerned for the future, he assures that there is nothing to fear as long as he heads the Senate.
“We’re not going to let that happen. Donald Trump’s still in the White House and as long I’m majority leader in the Senate, I get to set the agenda. That’s why I call myself the grim reaper. We will not have the Green New Deal, we will not have Medicare-for-none as long as I’m majority leader of the Senate,” McConnell said.
