Mitch McConnell: Now That Democrats Only Control the White House and the Senate, It’s Time to Do Everything Republicans Want
President Senate Majority Minority Leader McConnell outlines the national agenda for the next two years.
“Over the past week, some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office. But the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill; to end the bailouts; cut spending; and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things it is to put someone in the White House who won’t veto any of these things,” McConnelll will say, according advanced remarks. “We can hope the President will start listening to the electorate after Tuesday’s election. But we can’t plan on it.”
One wonders what Mitch McConnell thought the electorate was saying in 2006 and 2008. But if anything he’s like John Boehner, he heard, “less government, lower taxes, more Republican.”
Funny how that’s what we’re always saying, no matter how we vote.
