Mitch McConnell Promises Better Health Care For People But Can He Actually Deliver?

Mitch McConnell is an American senator serving as the minority leader since January twenty-first, 2021. Previously a Republican, he is now serving as the junior United States Senator from Kentucky, formerly served as the state’s senior United States Senator. During his time as Senate Majority Leader, he held the record for most seats lost by Congress’s single-party control. For many voters, however, his tenure as minority leader was less than satisfying. His supporters may question his ability to lead on the critical issues that are important to the country.

In reviewing the Kentucky senator’s time as a United States Senator and, after that, his time as Majority leader, I have been struck by how little he cares for the traditional definition of the American political process. Despite pleas from his colleagues for him to run for president in 2021, he has remained steadfast in believing that this is not a role he is well suited to play. What is this man afraid of? The answer is simple. He is scared of change, especially when it comes to the conservative ideology that underpins much of modern conservatism.

If one were to chart the evolution of modern conservatism in the United States over the last half-century or so, one would find a consistent theme running through it: the protection of the individual and the free market, or more specifically, the safety of the person and his rights to participate in the political process. Except for a few years after World War II, when business people and industrialists were empowered by socialistic principles and the end of laissez-faire, they have always opposed any interference with free markets with government regulation. That began to change with the advent of what came to be known as “the Greatest Crisis” in the American economy’s history since the Great Depression. At that time, Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress and the White House; they had the clout to move legislation as they saw fit.

But that was then. Today, Republicans control just three of America’s federal chambers, and Democrats hold the majority in both houses. The Tea Party is on an anti-tax crusading spree, attacking all things Obama, including his health care policies and the IRS. While the tea party does not want to tax income, it wants to gut the IRS. That is where McConnell comes into play. His efforts to undermine the IRS have made him a hero among tea party enthusiasts.

One could say that McConnell understands how the system works in America. After all, he spent 30 years in business, working his way from wrestling cowboy boots to running a giant corporation. He knows how government works, and he understands how to play the game. What he has done since he became majority leader, however, is nothing conservative.

Most of the bills passed by the Senate are of pure politics. The leadership sets them up, puts them on the floor, hopes they pass with or without amendments, and then, bam, they get their supporters to vote for it. This is precisely what happened when Democrats put forward health care as an issue for the 2021 election. They had no real plan for fixing the problem; they just gave party members freebies. It worked for them, and now it is working for McConnell.

So, if McConnell can get his Tea Party colleagues to go along with his plans, what will happen? Some worry that if this type of strategy becomes popular, other legislation – like the recently passed minimum wage bill – will lose its relevance. Without an economic stimulus plan to support it, the middle class will suffer, and more people will live in poverty. This isn’t a vision for America.

Worse, the tea party is already having trouble coming up with ideas to replace their failed policies. So the whole thing turns into something ugly. But then again, this is just the new Washington. Something always gets broken in Washington. The only question is how long will those who supported the failed policies remain in the legislature. If they win their next election, it won’t be pretty.
