McConnell: Democratic COVID Relief Bill Is 'Partisan Hodge-Podge'


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says President Biden's coronavirus relief bill is a "partisan hodge-podge" of non-COVID related items. 

The Kentucky Republican said Democrats are trying to exploit the last chapters of this crisis to pass the most progressive legislation in a generation. 

He said Democrats have told Republicans to "take it or leave it." McConnell noted he believes the real tragedy is how "ill-suited" this bill is for the American people's needs right now. 

He also called the legislation a poorly targeted spending spree.
