Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has blatantly told America that he would rather play politics than solve the debt problem. While the GOP and the Dems are at a standstill with negotiations about how to resolve the debt crisis coming August, McConnell has come up with a “Back-Up Plan.”
This so-called “plan” is having Congress vote three times on the President’s plan on raising the debt ceiling, then to have Obama override the Congressional vote and put the plan into place “forcibly.” That way, the GOP can still say they voted against increasing the ceiling three times, and Dems can claim they voted for it and passed it.
This kind of gutless political play is why we should never trust this Congress of selfish career politicians that don’t work for their constituents. McConnell has lost it.Published in
