Mitch McConnell filibusters his own bill!
Mr. McConnell, believing some Democrats would vote against the president’s debt-ceiling proposal, moved Thursday to put it on the Senate floor for a quick vote. If it could not muster a majority, Republicans would say Mr. Obama cannot even unify his own party.
But Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Senate majority leader, called Mr. McConnell’s bluff. He said he would put the McConnell debt-ceiling proposal to a vote if Mr. McConnell would let it pass with a simple majority, not a filibuster-proof 60 votes. Seeing he overplayed his hand, Mr. McConnell objected.
“What we’re talking about here is a perpetual debt-ceiling grant,” Mr. McConnell said on the Senate floor, concluding that matters of that magnitude need 60 votes to pass.
“What we have is here a case of Republicans not taking yes for an answer,” Mr. Reid replied as Mr. McConnell began a filibuster of his own bill.
The GOP has discovered that a willingness to wreck the US's credit rating is a good hostage and they don't want to give it up.
But the President says he's not going to negotiate with terrorists.
When the democratic process works, Republicans lose. That's why they are so invested in dishonestly perverting the democratic process.
Why does the GOP hate America and democracy?
