McConnell's Vulgar Plans

Nov 4th, 2012

The Republicans are bing quite clear that there is currently no intention of getting anything meaningful done in the next 2 years.

Speaking before the Heritage Foundation this morning, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) laid out the reasons, in his view, that making the defeat of President Obama the number one priority for the Republican Party is both essential and responsible. He  frames the elevation of politics above policy as pragmatism.

"We have to be realistic about what we can and cannot achieve... On health care, that means we can and should propose and vote on straight repeal repeatedly. But we can't expect the President to sign it."

He goes on to describe the ways health care reform can be crippled through parliamentary denials of funding.

That's the priority.
