McConnell Slip

During a press conference to disparage Majority Leader Harry Reid’s debt ceiling bill, Mitch McConnell claimed “pairing the amount of increase in the debt ceiling with an equal number of cuts” is a proper way of handling this. He then added, “and we will proceed along these lines for the next two years.” What is interesting is how he attached this procedure to the remainder of Obama’s term, not indefinitely, which implies if they win the presidency, they will abandon this strategy. That is because they know it is ridiculous, but since it hurts Obama, they go with it.
