U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday, “ It’s time for Democrat leaders to take ‘yes’ for an answer.” Today McConnell got his answer, “No.”
Today, Senate Rep. Leader McConnell made lemonade out of lemons, he announced that the deal protected the government spending reductions that both parties agreed to under the Budget Control Act, and that was signed into law. He stated that this was the top priority for him and his colleagues.
The deal struck today would fund the government through January 15, 2014 and raise the debt ceiling until February 7, 2014. For those signing up for Obamacare the bill intensifies income verification and would allow time to appoint members to a conference committee that would work on a budget resolution, whose results are to be made available by December 13. , Although the deal is said to be clean, Politico writes on how McConnell may have earmarked $2 billion for his Olmsted Lock and Dam project in Kentucky.
McConnell also put down Obamacare that has and will continue to hurt our economy, has killed jobs, drove up premiums and left many without health insurance. He stated that Republicans will continue to work on repealing this law.
