Mitch McConnell Blasted Over Support for $1.7 Trillion Spending Bill

Numerous Republicans have turned against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) over his support for the government's massive $1.7 trillion spending bill.

The measure, supported by several Republicans who joined Democrats to pass the measure, was a source of much criticism by many, including former President Donald Trump.

"If the Old Crow waited just 10 days, the Republican Majority in the House could have made the 'Ominous' Bill MUCH, MUCH, MUCH BETTER," Trump, 76, said Monday on his Truth Social media platform.

"Just another win for the Democrats, Mitch, that wouldn't have happened if 'Trump' were President!," he added.

Several other GOP leaders also joined in the attacks on McConnell.

"Our party leadership turned on Republican voters, turned on the Republican base, turned on most Republican senators," Utah's Mike Lee said on "The Cats Roundtable" on WABC 770 AM. "It has happened before, but this is one too many times. For me, this is the final straw."

"As Republicans scratch their heads over their disappointing midterms, they ought to consider that voters don't see much of a defining difference with Democrats," he added.

The controversy falls just ahead of the next Congress in January. Republicans will take back a slim majority in the House, while Democrats will continue with an advantage in the Senate.

The spending bill also drew attacks over the several pet projects to fund the causes of outgoing lawmakers. The bill was also 4,155 pages long, with only two days to read it ahead of a vote.

McConnell is not the only one at fault, but he certainly did little to stop the Democratic-led effort to push the massive bill ahead of the holidays.
