Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has slammed Democrats for trying to jam their “wish list” spending bill through Congress. The House Republican Leader told reporters on Thursday, Democrats had initially proposed two separate bills, those being infrastructure and reconciliation. However, the lines are getting increasingly blurred.

“They have put it into one. It is no longer a single infrastructure bill. This is all viewed as one reconciliation bill as a whole,” said McCarthy.

McCarthy criticized Joe Biden for not being able to unite his party and for changing his story by the minute.

“Have you ever seen an administration and Congress as incompetent as this? Trillions of dollars in spending, major expansions of government agencies  and even more inflation that will lead to higher costs for all Americans. Those are all on the table,” he stated. “Yet, the details change by the minute.”

McCarthy stressed Democrat spending plans are irresponsible and say it will not receive any GOP support.
