1 mitch McConnell on Thu Dec 16, 2010 11:02 pm


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took to the Senate floor this morning to publicly denounce the 2,000 page [omnibus spending] bill. Aghast over its physical enormity, McConnell parroted the GOP talking points on the bill: it was dropped in the dead of night, it “runs just under 2,000 pages,” and “it spends more than half a billion dollars per page.” McConnell dropped his own one-page continuing resolution that would hold the government at current spending levels until Feb. 18.

Overhearing McConnell’s tantrum, Senate Majority Whip Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) came to the floor.

…this is the reality…It’s true it’s over a trillion dollars. In fact, it’s $1.1 trillion in this bill. But what hasn’t been said by Senator McConnell and Senator Kyl, that’s exactly the amount that they asked for! Senator McConnell came to the Senate Appropriations Committee and said Republicans will not support this bill unless you bring the spending down to $1.108 trillion. That is exactly what we bring down to the floor to be considered.

So to stand back in horror and look at $1.1. trillion and say where did this figure come from, it came from Senator Mitch McConnell in a motion he made before the Senate Appropriations Committee.

And of course you can add Senate Republican's hypocrisy on the question of earmarks in this spending bill, where they denounce them even as they defend the fact that hundreds of millions of dollars in said earmarks were requested by Republicans:

Obviously Republican hypocrisy isn't going to stop, but it needs to be called out every time it happens, because as the video shows, sometimes the media is paying attention.

he is an ass, like most repugs
