But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Mitch McConnell: ‘We Have a Voter Mandate Not to Raise Taxes’
Makes you proud to be an American when you vote for someone who represents you but doesn’t listen to you.
‘As Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell sits for an interview in his Capitol office 48 hours after the election, one thing is certain: He is in no way chastened by Tuesday’s results. If Mr. Obama wants fiscal hand-to-hand combat, he will get it’.
“Let me put it very clearly,” says the five-term Republican senator from Kentucky. “I am not willing to raise taxes to turn off the sequester. Period.”

M) ‘60% of voters want taxes to go up. But, oddly, only a third thinks they should be raised to cut the deficit’.

Oh but Senator McConnell wasn’t done :
“Look, he may think it would be helpful to his presidency to continue to divide and demonize us,” says Mr. McConnell’.
But in 2010 :
Senator Mitch McConnell : “We need to say to everyone on Election Day, “Those of you who helped make this a good day, you need to go out and help us finish the job.”
NJ: “What’s the job”?
McConnell: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president”.
