McConnell Reveals Obstructionist Agenda At Koch Brothers Meeting

At a Koch brothers-hosted meeting, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) promised his wealthy donors that if the Republicans take over the Senate, they will obstruct all bills meant to help anyone other than the one percent: "“So in the House and Senate, we own the budget. So what does that mean? That means that we can pass the spending bill. And I assure you that in the spending bill, we will be pushing back against this bureaucracy by doing what’s called placing riders in the bill. No money can be spent to do this or to do that. We’re going to go after them on healthcare, on financial services, on the Environmental Protection Agency, across the board. All across the federal government, we’re going to go after it.” McConnell also said that a GOP-controlled Congress also won't allow measures on minimum wage, extending unemployment insurance and college affordability to pass.
