McConnell says GOP victories show Democrats' 'radical social takeover' is 'the last thing Americans want'

 Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday chastised Democrats, saying that GOP victories in Tuesday's elections show there is no mandate for a "radical social takeover" of the country.

Speaking on the Senate floor the day after Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated Democratic former Gov. Terry McAuliffe in Virginia's gubernatorial race, McConnell said Democrats have overreached after their narrow victory in 2020 and that American voters don't want a far-left progressive agenda.

"Last night was a difficult evening for Democrats. The Democratic Party has wildly misread their mandate and let the radical left run the country. Local Democrats let teachers' unions keep schools shut months longer than necessary and told parents they didn't get a say in what their kids are learning," McConnell said.The Republican leader blamed Democrats for rising prices of consumer goods before criticizing how President Joe Biden has handled the economy, foreign policy, immigration, and other "government-created crises."

He also took the opportunity to criticize the Democrats' proposed $1.75 trillion spending bill, which was originally a $3.5 trillion bill until moderate Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) forced Democrats to compromise to win his support.

"The American people will not stand for this. That's what voters told Democrats last night. The results from different parts of the country demonstrate this was in large part a referendum on national issues," he said. "But it's not too late. Democrats should listen to the voters, drop this reckless taxing and spending spree, and stop trying to ram through a socialist transformation that the American people never asked for. The radical transformation that Democrats are writing behind closed doors would compound every mistake their party has made."
