McConnell Republican Wast of Time
"Senate history may have been made today when Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) attempted to play partisan games with his own bill to allow the President to raise the debt ceiling."
"What we have is here a case of Republicans not taking yes for an answer The Republican leader objects to his own idea," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) announced on the floor. "So I guess we have a filibuster of his own bill."
This left McConnell sputtering that he didn't want the vote, and he suggested that he now presumes every single bill needs a filibuster proof majority to pass instead of a straight up and down vote. "What we're talking about here is a perpetual debt ceiling grant, in effect, to the president, " McConnell said. "Matters of this level of controversy always require 60 votes."
In other words, in McConnell's world, there are no more up and down votes everything has to be voted on as if it had already been filibustered. And the country wonders why nothing gets done in this chamber.
This moment allowed the Democrats to seize on McConnell's blatant and rather hysterical, if unintentional, parody of Republican obstructionism as they pointed out that he may have had made history today by filibustering his own bill.
This man has continued to waste the peoples time & my patience for the last 4 yeasr!
He succeeds at being a political toilet!
