Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Thursday predicted there would not be a government shutdown, pouring cold water on a push by some conservatives to hold up a stopgap funding bill unless they get a vote on defunding President Biden’s coronavirus vaccine mandate for large employers.
McConnell, during an interview with Fox News, warned that linking a demand to defund the mandate to government funding legislation would “create chaos and uncertainty.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I don’t think shutting down the government over this issue is going to get an outcome. It would only create chaos and uncertainty so I don’t think that’s the best vehicle to get this job done,” he said.
“We’re not going to shut the government down,” McConnell said when asked if there was a possibility to avert one.
“I think there’s good news—multiple courts have pushed the pause button on these government vaccine mandates,” he continued, adding that “next week we’re going to have a vote on the vaccine mandate, prohibiting that … I think it has a decent chance of passing the Senate.”
McConnell also insisted that the worst issue in the country currently is inflation, and told Fox News that the “single biggest gift Washington Democrats could give to the American people is to kill this multi-trillion-dollar reckless taxing and spending bill.”
