McConnell’s game plan:
1) Call for bipartisanship.
2) Dangle vague compromise.
3) Back out last-minute.
4) Threaten not to raise the debt ceiling.
5) Go on Fox News.
6) Bash Biden and Dems.
The goal is to run out the clock.

I condemn the mass detentions and sham trials that are the Cuban regime’s efforts to threaten the Cuban people into silence. My Administration stands with the Cuban people, and is imposing new sanctions targeting those in the Cuban regime responsible for this crackdown.

How can Senate Republicans threaten not to raise debt ceiling (the amount government can borrow) for Biden’s proposed spending on families when they raised it to pay for the former guy’s tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations?
Because that’s who they are.

Let me get this straight: Republicans filibuster a bipartisan process, try to appoint insurrectionists to our select committee, then threaten to hold their own “investigation?”
They don’t WANT the truth to come out. They’re fully committed to the Big Lie.https://t.co/wiz9BBNtTZ

I was in the Capitol on January 6th. I didn’t know if I was going to make it out of there alive.
Republicans have refused to support any investigations because they know that it’d threaten the Big Lie.
No more cover ups. We need this Select Committee. https://t.co/5Zyz1N0pfb

“Texas Republican lawmakers tried to pass a bill that would expand the authority of partisan poll watchers by allowing them access inside polling places & threaten criminal penalties against election officials who obstruct them.” Pass the #ForThePeopleAct.https://t.co/ytLoyfQZIa

“Tech companies threaten all labor. They will continue to di their hands into the pockets of workers and pay off politicians. We have to stop them. We have to ask our politicians to stop taking tech money and pass the #PROAct so that gig workers can unionize!” @_drivers_united pic.twitter.com/Nvsm0oSVd9

I unequivocally condemn the violence against your constituents.
The Second Amendment should NEVER be used to threaten anyone in civil society, including big tech.
My remarks were deceptively edited.
I respectfully request you review them in full to see the essential context.
