Condemnation of Mitch McConnell

CONDEMNATION OF MITCH MCCONNELL

As of November 10, 2019, Leader Mitch McConnell has prevented 307 bills that have passed in the House from coming up for a vote.

Mitch McConnell continues to stonewall the progressive agenda at the behest of billionaires and special interests, including the following:

H.R. 5: Equality Act will amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to define sex discrimination to include discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, giving the LGBTQ community full protection. The bill has over 100 bipartisan co-sponsors. The House vote on this bill was taken on May 17, 2019, and it passed 236-173.

H.R. 7: Paycheck Fairness Act has over 100 bipartisan co-sponsors. It would address the problem of pay disparities between men and women by increasing transparency and civil penalties for violations of equal pay provisions. The House vote was taken on March 27, 2019 and passed 242-187.

H.R. 8: Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 Over 30,000 American residents annually die to do gun violence. As at November 15, 2019, mass shootings in 2019 claimed 450 lives and has injured 1,539. In the aftermath of the El-Paso, TX and Dayton, OH shooting in August of 2019, Leader McConnell stated that the Senate Republicans were "prepared to do their part" on Gun Violence in the aftermath of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio killing 31 people. The bill would close a number of loopholes that exempt many gun purchases/sales from undergoing background checks, including the notorious “gun show loophole” that exempts private gun sales from checks. The bill had over 100 bipartisan co-sponsors and was passed in the House by 240-190 on February 27, 2019.

H.R. 9: Climate Action Now Act passed the House on May 2, 2019, 231-190. It would require the President to remain in the Paris Climate Agreement, develop a plan to meet our nation’s determined contribution to combat climate change, including cutting our greenhouse gas emissions by 26%-28% below 2005 levels by 2025.

H.R. 95: Homeless Veteran Families Act was passed unanimously in the House on October 15, 2019. The bill would change the way benefits are calculated for homeless veterans, to include costs for caring for minor children.

In light of Leader McConnell refusal to do his job, has failing to uphold the Constitution, the American people; specifically the LGBT community, our Children, and our veterans, THE PEOPLE, strongly condemns Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell. This will be his legacy.
