McConnell blasts Senate majority for failure to act

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) took to the floor Friday morning to blast the Democratic majority in the Senate for failing to propose a solution to the looming deficit crisis that could pass either house.


“Democrats here in the Senate have offered no solutions that could pass either chamber, not one,” said McConnell. “Instead all day yesterday we got chest-thumping comments about how we are going to kill any legislation that comes from the House.”


McConnell contrasted Democratic leadership in the Senate to Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) “hard work of governing” in the House.


They are “working day and night to craft a bill that can pass the House and end the crisis now,” said McConnell.”


“But what about over here in the Senate, well the contrast couldn’t be starker,” he continued. “Rather than working towards a a solution…the Democratic majority… has been wasting time rounding up no votes to keep this crisis alive, rather than being responsibly and doing their duty.”


“They have been busy signing people up for the not good enough caucus,” said McConnell.


The minority leader concluded by suggesting Democrats “start taking their responsibilities as a majority more seriously.”

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