McConnell Comments on House-Passed Bill to Prevent Default

Ok, I really don’t like the idea that this bill “prevents default”. If the government shuts down, we still have money. Defaulting on the debts will be a choice by the President, not an inevitability. And the task before Congress is twofold. Protect the credit rating and keep the government running. Simply borrowing more money to pay our loans will surely result in a downgrading of America’s creditworthiness. I would hope the Senate Minority Leader would make that clear in the future. Other than that, I agree with McConnell’s assessment.

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Friday after House passage of a bill to prevent default and reduce Washington spending:


“The House has now passed its second bill in two weeks that would prevent a default and significantly cut Washington spending. The Senate is a different story. Rather than working towards a solution to this crisis the way the Republican majority in the House has, the Democrat majority here in the Senate has been wasting precious time rounding up ‘no’ votes. Rather than come up with a bill that can pass, they’ve been busy ginning up opposition to everything else. Now it’s time for them to act. I eagerly await the Majority Leader’s plan for preventing this crisis.”

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
