The Daily Quote

“‘Shutting down the government in my view is not conservative policy,’ [Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)] said… ‘A number of us were saying back in July that this strategy could not and would not work, and of course it didn’t,’ Sen. McConnell said.  ‘So there will not be another government shutdown.  You can count on that.’”
