Senator Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) plan to give Obama free rein on increasing the national debt until after the 2012 elections is the most ridiculous piece of legislative failure I have ever seen! If you read this blog, you know I am a fiscal conservative and feel, strongly, that raising the debt limit is a terrible mistake! The government has to get its house in order! John Boehner (R-OH), House Speaker has capitulated to this pitiful proposal. It is another example of Boehner’s inability to lead the GOP-controlled House. All conservatives, (Republican, Democrat, or Tea Party) should take this opportunity to vote “NO” if or when this legislation comes to the House! The GOP presidential candidates will have a field day criticizing their fellow party members for having no backbone or conviction for a fiscally responsible government. And, Obama and the liberals will be free to spend, spend, spend….while the wimps in the Republican party watch from behind the curtains as they get their noses rubbed into the dirt! And, sadly, the GOP will deserve it because they have failed to defend their principles! First, they gave Obama the gift of extending unemployment insurance…..now, they are opening the treasure trove to a free-spending progressive idiot that is trying to ruin America! Their strategy is pathetically naive! They seem to have been intimidated by Obama’s empty threat to stop Social Security checks on August 3! Absurd!
Furthermore, McConnell’s proposal takes away any incentive for Obama to compromise on anything! When pushed up against a hot pipe, McConnell threw in the towel! Now that Obama knows that he will get his way and can spin this to his advantage (despite the fact that it is terrible for America), the Dems will totally disregard the GOP message. Nice job, Mitch! You belong in the Hall of Shame with Stupak, the traitor! WTF is going on in this country? Doesn’t anyone have any common sense! Or any grit! I guess not!!!!
