Exactly. Every Democrat, and especially ones looking to run for President in 2020, should be out in the media today slamming these statements as ridiculous and anti-American. McConnell essentially admits that most Federal workers would volunteer and vote Democrat if given the day off to do so, then he somehow turns one Federal holiday day into a “brand-new week of paid vacation” and finishes it off by claiming taxpayers would be subsidizing this phantom “vacation”. Election Day is on a Tuesday in November jackass, nobody is going to plan a vacation around a Tuesday off a couple of weeks before the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, especially not when they’re getting that day off to VOTE.
Republicans aren’t even trying to hide the fact that they’re a desperate minority party at this point. They’re actively defending voter suppression and gerrymandering, and trying to pass it all off as if they’re doing middle-class taxpaying America a favor. Every Democrat should be shouting this from the rooftops on every media outlet available to them.
