Mitch McConnell Gets on the 'Rand' Wagon (half-way), Backs End to Congressional Exemption: Do We Trust Him? (No)

Nothing has been said in this article, anyway, about the idea of exchanging Congressional Subsidies for an increase of the debt ceiling. McConnell told former Education Secretary Bill Bennett on Bennett's Radio program that he supports the amendment proposed by Senator David Vitter. The amendment, mentioned by Ted Cruz in his 'filibuster' attempt, would remove the government employees subsidies from The Affordable Health Care and Patient Protection Act, commonly known as Obamacare.

Let's all hold our noses:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/08...

"Jesse Benton, manager of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s reelection campaign, told a conservative activist in a phone call early this year that he was “holdin’ my nose” to run the race to benefit Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul in a 2016 run."

Does anyone here believe Jesse Benton?

I have a hard time considering...

all the mess of 2008 and 2012! Holding our noses does not seem sufficient, lighting a few matches does. (My dad used to do this if someone 'broke wind' in the car if he wasn't driving)

Thanks for the chuckle

Political ploy

This must be a political ploy because Mitch is about to lose his seat.

Keepin' it real.

I agree ,

We shall see how this all plays out. I don't trust McConnell either.
