“It’s the Kentucky Kickback,” the Senate Conservatives Fund, which is considering backing McConnell’s primary opponent, wrote in a blog post. “In exchange for funding Obamacare and raising the debt limit, Mitch McConnell has secured a $2 billion earmark. This is an insult to all the Kentucky families who don’t want to pay for Obamacare and don’t want to shoulder any more debt.”


The measure, which is supported by the White House and doesn’t actually spend any money, would raise the amount authorized for the Olmsted Lock and Dam project to $2.9 billion from $775 million.


RedState editor Erick Erickson also said on Twitter that McConnell had “carved out an earmark for himself,” and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted the provision.

If voters re-elect McConnell then they're not serious about debt solutions and are ok with Obamacare because in the end, they're getting more debt and keeping Obamcare.
