Skip to comments.House Republican dubs Mitch McConnell the 'Marie Antoinette of the Senate'
Posted on 04/24/2020 3:58:28 PM PDT by Hojczyk
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., had some harsh words for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., after the latter suggested that state governments should be able to declare bankruptcy during the coronavirus pandemic.
".@senatemajldr McConnells dismissive remark that States devastated by Coronavirus should go bankrupt rather than get the federal assistance they need and deserve is shameful and indefensible," King tweeted Wednesday.
"To say that it is 'free money' to provide funds for [...] cops, firefighters and healthcare workers makes McConnell the Marie Antoinette of the Senate," he added.

Shut up, Pete.
He just wants to bailout his state..fools all republican or democrat
New York, New Jersey, Illinois, The People’s Republic of California....they all have taxes.
Let them bail out their own failed states.
Peter there will be no money. Push your chair back from the table.
Shut up, Pete.
He should shut up. But he cant help himself, he and his constituents smell those potential BAILOUT BILLIONS.
MITCH, WERE PROUD OF YOU FOR YOUR STAND!
Hey Pete, maybe you need to talk to your governor about letting people go back to work so you can get some tax revenue.
New York, New Jersey, Illinois, The Peoples Republic of California....We all have taxes.
Let us bail out our own failed states.
Then Nancy Pelosi must be the Marie Antoinette of the House.
“Let them eat ice cream.”
I didn’t think Peterless King was still around.
NO ONE should fund failed social experiments like they have in all LIEberal states except the voters who put the clowns in office. Let the DUmocrats pay for their own decisions.
There is no doubt that NY and others are in serious trouble financially.
However, they were already in trouble BEFORE all of this happened and it has made it much worse than it was going to be.
Cuomo is looking to wipe the slate clean with federal money. Trump is saying we’ll give you the difference between where you were going to end up and where you are now.
For NY it was 7 billion in the hole, and it’s now like 16 billion. That’s a 9 billion gap and growing.
McConnell is saying you’re going to keep the 7 billion hole because you need to own THAT. You created that and it’s your problem. We’ll give you the difference but not the whole 16 billion.
Peter, your New York politicians signed you up for those lavish public employee pensions, YOU pay for them.
I know Cuomo must be aware that there are still some NYers with disposable income.
Pete maybe many things he aint no Republican and he aint no conservative
I agree with King. New York State gives a lot more to the federal government than it takes in compared to other states. As long as the money is used to help fire fighters, police, hospital workers, public health workers etc. and other items related to this crisis, I have no problem with it. Not providing the proper funding to the states would create all sorts of economic and social problems that we don’t need now.
Then, and only then, will we know the true Queen.
How has Pete King not gotten Chinese Coronavirus?
Those two are right in the CCV kill zone.
NY and Ill-annoy, among others, dug their holes. They have avoided the responsibility of filling in these holes. Not up to the responsible taxpayers of other states, who never had a vote in running up those debts, to bail them out.
