Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday night that for the first time in his memory he can finally agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about something — he is “the Grim Reaper” and he is here to kill the socialist agenda of the Democratic Party.
Earlier on Thursday Pelosi held a news conference where she laid out in a presentation all of the far-left policy proposals from the Democratic Party that McConnell is blocking.
Pelosi even tweeted out the graphic, writing: “[McConnell] is so obsessed with blocking votes on commonsense solutions passed by the House, he’s taken to calling himself ‘the Grim Reaper.’ But Americans are tired of waiting – they want action on their priorities now.”

“She’s got it right,” McConnell said. “She’s got it absolutely right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi.”
“I am indeed the ‘Grim Reaper’ when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over the House with overwhelming Democratic support, and sending it over to America,” McConnell continued. “Things that would turn us into a country we have never been.”
“They are on their way to doing some additional things, in addition to things they’ve already done — the Green New Deal, Medicare For All,” McConnell added. “By the way, you may have mentioned this on your show, but they planned to make the District of Columbia a state, that will give them two new Democratic Senators, Puerto Rico a state, that will give them two more Democratic Senators, and as a former supreme court clerk yourself, you’ve surely noticed that they plan to expand to the Supreme Court. This is full bore socialism on the march in the House and yeah, as long as I’m the Majority Leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere.”
