The Corner

The one and only.

McConnell on the Snow Job


From a press conference going on right now:

This bill is a “legislative train wreck of historic proportions.”   “The bill includes permissive language on government-funded abortion.”   Medicaid: “The bill imposes massive burdens on states that are already struggling under the weight of the cost of Medicaid. At the same time, however, it gives special sweetheart deals to a select few states. Interestingly enough, two states that stand out are Nebraska and Vermont.” This means that taxpayers elsewhere around the country end up “paying more so that Nebraska and Vermont can get a special deal.”   “A bill that was sold as helping a major problem in our nation actually makes the problem worse.”   “If this was a good bill with bipartisan support, they would not be trying to pass this the weekend before Christmas and in the middle of the night.”
