GOP Sen. Kennedy: Biden Saying ‘I’m The Candy Man And I’ve Got More Free Stuff For You’ With Louisiana Trip

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) went on Fox News to react to President Joe Biden announcing plans to visit his home state of Louisiana.

Kennedy expressed his belief that Biden is doing this to promote an infrastructure spending agenda.

Kennedy Sounds Off On Biden Visit

“I don’t have a lot of details,” Kennedy said, referring to the visit. “It’s always an honor when a president visits your state. I’m sure the president’s coming in to say I’m the candy man, and I’ve got more free stuff for you. The problem is that there’s nothing free. Anything free somebody had to work for.”

“The president’s plan is not an infrastructure plan,” he added. “Only 5 percent of it goes to infrastructure. It’s really a Green New Deal and welfare plan, and it’s a mess. It looks like somebody — somebody knocked over a urine sample. Now, we can fix it if we stick to, A, infrastructure, and B, we have serious discussions about how to pay for it. I can tell you how we can pay for it.”

Kennedy Reveals What We Need To Do

“We can reduce some of our spending,” he added. “We spend $144 billion a year on improper payments, including to dead people. We don’t have to give our federal employees a pay raise every year. We can repurpose some of the coronavirus money that we don’t need. We clearly aren’t in an economic crisis.”

“I will give the president credit in one respect,” Kennedy stated. “I’m not for raising the corporate income tax, but there is a tax loophole, a special interest loophole, that I’m willing to talk with him about. It has to — I won’t bore you with the details, but it has to do with what’s called intellectual property and transfer of pricing.”

“I’ll give you an example,” Kennedy continued. “Coca-Cola just got tagged by a federal judge for $3 billion in back taxes for cheating on its taxes. And it did it by moving it — moving its recipe for its syrup to other low tax countries, like Ireland and others and some clever accounting, and they got caught.”

“And I think a lot of multinational corporations do that,” he concluded. “And I’m willing to sit down and talk with the president about how to close that loophole. I know it’s hard to believe that a company as — a CEO as virtuous as the CEO of Coca-Cola would do that. But nonetheless, he got caught.”

  • Joey Boy has been to Georgia and is planning on going to Georgia!! Will someone tell him where our Southern Border risks is, please!!

  • Free is good, they say evermore in the USA.
    No , its not. Its a disease, But we have it spreading everywhere like a virus.
    And the lies that flue has become an eight year nothing- burger , while Covid 19 is everywhere is a mass Lie. Its a CPR misleading political Lie. And the not so powerful public is chained in disbelief, But they they can’t deny that the smart people chained them.

  • I like his stance on issues. Wish he was one of my senators. We've got a Murkowski to get rid of.

  • Living in Massachusetts this is the only Kennedy that I would vote for. The other Kennedy name around here is “dead” to me.

  • Coke will be gone before long and the only people I feel sorry for are the millions of merchandisers and truckers who work hard everyday to keep the shelves stocked - These mindless CEOs need to get out there and do the work themselves and maybe wake and think about their decisions before they implement stupid policies and keep taking from the workers - I guess Coke will be union before long (I bet that would teach them). Not one for unions but a company like coke would deserve it.
