Sen. Mitch McConnell filibusters own bill on debt ceiling when Democrats agree to vote

WASHINGTON — In the span of hours, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday challenged Democrats to an immediate vote giving President Barack Obama unilateral power to increase the nation’s borrowing limit, then reversed course and blocked his own bill when Democrats agreed.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who was presiding over the Senate, grinned and said she had “whiplash,” an obvious reference to McConnell’s sudden course reversal.

After witnessing the exchange, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told his colleagues, “I think we have now reached a new spot in the history of the Senate we have never seen before.”

“I am going to ask the parliamentarian to look into this,” Durbin said. “I do not think this has ever happened before.”

Reid issued a statement on Friday saying he would continue to press for a vote on the debt ceiling.

“After leading 385 filibusters in recent years, Senator McConnell took obstruction to new heights by filibustering his own bill,” Reid said. “Republicans’ obstruction and intransigence turned the last debt ceiling fight into a disaster for the middle class. We should give American families the security of knowing we will never go through such a harmful ordeal again.”


I can't believe he tried to score cheap political points and they called him on it and he has to fillibuster his own bill? WTF?

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
