Mitch McConnell is paying a stunning cost for defending the American people.
He’s willing to sacrifice it all.
You won’t believe the shocking reason Mitch McConnell suspended his campaign.
The Chinese coronavirus that is sweeping through the nation is making changes to lives that would have been unthinkable even one week ago.
Many people who work in hospitality and the service industry are having a hard time making ends meet, and parents are scrambling as schools and daycares shut down.
The Democrats have often accused Republicans of being uncompassionate in their response to poverty and healthcare.
Republicans aren’t trying to make life harder for people who are having a rough time, Republicans generally offer solutions from the free market that often work better than bloated inefficient government programs.
But there are times when the rules change and the government needs to get involved in a way that’s abnormal like this current Chinese coronavirus and Republicans are working for the government to respond in a way that will relieve the suffering that people are feeling.
The Democrats have accused Republicans of not caring that millions of people would die with global warming.
No, it’s not that Republicans don’t care about millions of people dying, this is how the capitalist system works when there’s the danger of millions dying, the reason Republicans don’t support global warming isn’t that they don’t care.
All the evidence points towards the fact that climate-related deaths are going down.
Republicans don’t want people to suffer.
Mitch McConnell is suspending his campaign efforts so that his staff can focus on getting meals to his constituents that are at risk.
“As Senator McConnell leads bipartisan efforts to help Kentuckians and all Americans cope with the impact of the coronavirus, Amy McGrath continues to run millions of dollars in false, negative political advertising designed to tear us apart. A candidate whose partisanship and ideology is so extreme that she cannot understand what people need in times of crisis is one that should not represent her political party, let alone the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” said Kevin Golden, McConnell’s Senate Committee campaign manager.
“Team Mitch has suspended its voter contact program and is asking Kentuckians if we can be a resource to provide meals for those who are at-risk and cannot get a meal on their own during this difficult time,” he continued.
“We paused our entire voter contact program and turned it into an outreach effort for at-risk Kentuckians. Phone bank volunteers are now standing by as operators for folks who need help. Staff and volunteers who, under normal circumstances, would be fanning out across the state to canvass and distribute campaign literature have been now tasked with assisting the needy during this difficult time,” McConnell’s campaign told the Daily Caller.
There’s a reason the New York Times found that counties that are overwhelmingly Republican give more to charities than the Democrat ones.
Republicans do care about the poor, the disadvantaged and the vulnerable.
Mitch McConnell just helped prove it.
