The Daily Quote

"There's been no question about Mitch McConnell's position of ardent, unwavering support [for a bipartisan fiscal commission]. Last spring he needled President Obama for not backing it. He endorsed it numerous times. Here, for example, is what McConnell had to say last May: ‘We must address the issue of entitlement spending now before it is too late. As I have said many times before, the best way to address the crisis is the Conrad-Gregg proposal, which would provide an expedited pathway for fixing these profound long-term challenges. This plan would force us to get debt and spending under control. It deserves support from both sides of the aisle.’… And then, last Tuesday, he voted against it.”
