CPAC Coverage: McConnell

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell just spoke at CPAC.  (If you don't know what CPAC is, you have landed on the wrong site. Welcome anyhow!)  Here are excerpts from McConnell's speech:
  • Under the Obama administration, government spending has increased by more than 20 percent.
  • We need a federal pay freeze, because the wage gap between government and private sector employees has doubled the past ten years.  Worse, government benefits are 60 percent higher than those of the taxpayers who pay for them.
  • President Obama, right after he signed the stimulus bill, promised to cut the defict in half.  We know how that turned out.
  • The Obama administration promised that its spending spree would keep unemployment below eight percent.  Another broken promise.
