Yesterday, after passing a tax bill that will plunge our nation into nearly $2 trillion dollars in added debt and increase the financial burden on working families to give millionaire Republican donors more money, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shared a picture of himself celebrating with the president in the Oval Office.
Today, his own Congressman is making him regret it. (Tweet below.)
In the photo, McConnell is presenting President Trump with a personalized Louisville Slugger baseball bat from his home state of Kentucky:
Not a bad cherry on top of a bill that is expected to enrich Trump personally to a tune of $11 million dollars per year and the Trump family by a cool billion dollars overall.
McConnell’s own Congressman, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, John Yarmuth (D-KY) saw the absurdly obsequious gesture and called McConnell out for his betrayal of the American people.
Yarmuth is right. McConnell, Trump, and their party can’t stop giving gifts to billionaires. So we’ll have to stop them ourselves.
