Senate Republican Chief Mitch McConnell mentioned any thought on sunsetting Social Safety and Medicare belongs to Sen. Rick Scott—not the GOP.
“Sadly, that was the Scott plan, that’s not a Republican plan,” McConnell mentioned on a Kentucky radio program.
McConnell’s feedback about Scott, a GOP rival, come because the White Home continues to spotlight how Republicans heckled — and apparently dedicated to not contact entitlement applications — throughout President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address this week.
“Speaker (Kevin) McCarthy mentioned Social Safety and Medicare are to not be touched and I’ve mentioned the identical,” McConnell advised radio host Terry Meiners on Thursday.
“And I feel we’re in a extra authoritative place to state what the place of the get together is than any single senator.”
