Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls out Mitch McConnell over debt ceiling increase

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) didn’t mince words when sharing her displeasure over Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his role in allowing the debt ceiling to be raised. 

Green called out McConnell over a deal he made with the House Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) that allowed for a one-time pause on the filibuster, according to Newsweek

“The House of Representatives is voting after midnight tonight because @LeaderMcConnell allowed Democrats to bi-pass the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION,” she tweeted.

“Mitch is Biden’s b*tch,” Green said, spewing frustration over the revocation of the tool conservatives could have used to fend of the debt ceiling increase. 

The increase was to the tune of about $2.5 trillion and will come at a significant cost to the American taxpayer. 

The tweet gained some followers, and as of Wednesday morning, it had been liked more than 11,000 times and retweeted nearly 4,000 times.

Currently, the debt ceiling is at around $31 trillion, something that economists fear could have catastrophic backlash in the future. That, plus the rising inflation means that this particular hike could take some time to pay off. 

However, Congress claimed that they have simply found themselves between a rock and a hard place, claiming that if they didn’t increase their debt limit and meet financial obligations it would have consequences that devastate the domestic and world economies.

The increase passed along party lines in the Senate and by a margin of 221-209 in the House of Representatives with only one Republican, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), siding with Democrats.
