Senate Candidate Donner (R-Va) Responds to Question on McConnell Plan

I asked US Senate Candidate Tim Donner his opinion on the debt ceiling plan proposed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. As we pointed out the other day, this is exactly the kind of question Virginians want answered. For far too long Republicans have spent too much money and the Democrats have spent even more.

The plan proposed by McConnell basically gives President Obama a blank check to destroy America and plot his reelection with even more taxpayer funded bribes.

Donner’s response is solidly Conservative:

With regard to your question, the McDonnell plan is nothing more than cynical political posturing in response to the Democrats doing the same on the debt issue from day one.  There is far too much at stake to settle for simply gambling that the American people will blame Obama if Republicans abandon the debt issue and put it in the president’s hands.

It was heartening to see the House pass the Cut Cap and Balance plan that includes the same constitutional amendment to balance the budget and place a hard cap on spending that has been a foundation of my campaign for permanent change in Washington from the day I announced my candidacy.  We know Harry Reid will do all he can to avoid bringing this to a vote in the Senate, but we must look upon that as the equivalent of rejection.  The Democrats have no plan for dealing with a debt crisis that is obvious to the American people, other than their usual denial of the problem, demagoguery and incitement of class warfare.  So it is up to Republicans, most importantly the 87 House freshmen who were elected to secure just this kind of structural reform, to use their considerable leverage at this moment of truth to hold the line, not give in and refuse to accept anything less than bold and dramatic reform.  The future of our nation is literally at stake.

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