This is madness!
In a stunning turn of events, Senator Lindsey Graham unloaded on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and is claiming that the Republican Party was “shot in the back” by the deal he brokered with the Democrats when it came to raising the debt ceiling.
According to The Hill, after several months of openly claiming that no Republicans would help the Democrats raise the debt ceiling, McConnell teamed up with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and helped the Democrats do exactly that!
Sen. Graham who is furious with McConnell stated, this deal “led them on a charge up a hill and they were getting shot in the back.”
Graham further noted that “the president is going to be engaged on this issue” when the 2022 midterm election rolls around.
“I think this is a mistake, but we’ll see what happens,” Graham stated. “We’ve been telling our Republican base for four months, ‘[Democrats] are spending money by themselves, they should raise the debt ceiling by themselves through reconciliation.'”
Former President Donald Trump is equally furious if not more at McConnell for the same reason and referred to him as a “Broken Old Crow”.
At one point Trump even said, “The debt ceiling is psychological. This is not psychological. This is fact. This will destroy our country, the fabric of the country as we know it.”
