McConnell Rips Dems' 'Socialist Schemes'

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defended his record and the cooperation he has received from President Donald Trump in a new opinion piece, adding that he won't fall for "socialist schemes" under his watch.

McConnell penned a story for The Courier-Journal in his home state of Kentucky and rattled off a list of accomplishments the Senate has recorded since Trump took office two and half years ago. He went into detail about the federal judges the Senate has approved.

"We've prioritized confirming President Trump's nominees throughout the federal judiciary, including six Kentuckians," McConnell wrote. "The Senate recently confirmed his 41st nominee to the circuit courts, just below the Supreme Court. That means nearly one-quarter of all federal circuit court judges nationwide have been nominated by President Trump and confirmed by the Senate I'm proud to lead.

"And traveling across Kentucky, I've heard overwhelming support for this transformation of the judiciary."

McConnell then took a shot at Democrats for trying to impose government-run healthcare programs and "job-killing ideas."

"These are dangerous ideas. They would raise your taxes and give the federal government vast control over your life," he wrote. "That's why President Trump and I are fighting hard to stop them. As long as I'm Senate majority leader, these socialist schemes will never become law."

McConnell first took office in 1985 and served as Senate majority whip and minority leader before becoming majority leader in 2015.
