Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy (R) spent most of an interview on Fox News complaining about the budget released this week by President Joe Biden, but was unable to answer when asked why Republicans hadn’t countered with a proposal of their own.
Fox host Shannon Bream was interviewing Kennedy on Sunday and mentioned that Biden had announced his budget would “reduce the deficit, shore up Medicaid and Social Security and make the rich pay their fair share.” She then asked, “So what’s the GOP counter?”
Um, how about answering the question, Senator.
Instead of providing any budget of his own, Kennedy said, “Uh, the only way I know how to improve the president’s budget is with a shredder.”
“Well, we’re waiting to see what Republicans though want to offer in return other than just criticism. Here’s what The New York Times says, how they characterize what they say is coming. They say hard-right House Republicans are readying a plan to gut the nation’s foreign aid budget and make deep cuts to health care, food assistance, and housing programs for poor Americans.
“So again, we’ve got to get to what the GOP counter is.”
Be sure and notice that Kennedy never answered the question. He and his party have no solutions to any of the problems that confront the country.
