McConnell on Today's Votes

Even Democrats won't vote for President Obama's budget:  not one.  It failed today in the Senate 0-97.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement on today's Senate votes regarding four budget proposals:

The President identified the problem more than a year ago when he said that ‘almost all of the long-term deficit and debt we face relates to the costs of Medicare and Medicaid.’ But Democrats in the Senate showed today that don't even want to talk about it. They rejected every single proposal to deal with it. They've chosen to ignore this crisis just like they ignored the last crisis. They're so focused on an election that's nearly two years away that they can't see the crisis in front of us.

Five RINOs didn't help the cause. All they need was one to open the debate. No surprise as to who the five were.
