Many have wondered if Mitch McConnell secretly was sabotaging Trump because he did not want Trump to serve a second term.
The thinking was Mitch only cared about his power in the Senate and did not want to give the American taxpayer a bigger stimulus leading up to the elections because it would diminish his leverage with the new Biden administration who he thought would win.
Leading up to the election Pelosi and the Dems shockingly would have agreed to a bigger stimulus for the American people (the details were a trap for Mitch and the GOP but optics matter) giving Trump a huge win right before the election.
No one can doubt that had Trump won and Congress handed over $2,000 to the American people before the election he would have won in a landslide.
So with Senate control in the balance and with Trump and both GOP Senators in Georgia on board with the $2,000 checks what does Mitch do?
Blocks it dooming the Georgia candidates. He will try to play some games by adding 203 issues and removing pork to a new bill but that will get lost in the shuffle.
What people will remember is this from an MSNBC reporter:
“Mitch McConnell just objected to Chuck Schumer’s unanimous consent request to pass the House bill on direct payments for $2,000. The request is blocked.”
“Mitch McConnell just blocked a proposal from Bernie Sanders for a vote on the House bill on direct payments for $2,000.”
Trafalgar – the only polling outfit that predicted Trump’s massive support and the resulting red wave in 2020 just issued this warning to Mitch.
If @SenateMajLdr puts the $2000 stimulus up for a vote, Loeffler and Perdue vote for it, they can win GA, and Mitch stays Senate leader
He doesn’t and game over
