(BREITBART) – Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) criticized his Democrat colleagues for using the pandemic to promote socialist governance in the United States and highlight Democrat priorities in the HEROES Act as examples.

“I’m not crazy about it,” he said. “Democrats are not crazy about it. Democrats talked about this bill going nowhere. And it’s really sickening that the Democrats are using this opportunity to enforce their socialism. Remember, what is this bill that they just passed on Friday? Well, it’s about pot, it’s about prisoners, it’s about politicizing election law, prioritizing illegal immigrants and pensions. These are all things that are socialist wish lists that they’ve been trying to pass long before COVID ever came to this land. And that’s exactly what they’re trying to do, knowing that it will not go anywhere.”

“They’re just using this as an opportunity to restructure government,” McCarthy continued. “And I’m not just saying that. That’s what Democrats say. Joe Biden said it the other day. Their whip said it, Clyburn. It goes beyond AOC. It’s now throughout the entire Democrat socialist base of what they want to utilize this opportunity to because when we wanted to help small businesses with their loans, Nancy Pelosi went to the freezer to stop it.”
