You may not agree with everything Mitch McConnell has done in the US Senate or how he runs his political organization, but one thing should give you great comfort. He understands how the government works and instead of throwing bombs and lodging protest votes for show, he protects us behind his power and skill.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell federal spending and the country's debt will dominate the congressional agenda for the next three months, and that debate about potential gun legislation in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting will take a back seat.
The Kentucky lawmaker tells ABC's "This Week" that lawmakers will wait to see what an Obama administration review led by Vice President Joe Biden might propose. McConnell says Congress will need to study any recommendations and then see what's appropriate to do.
But he says that over the coming months, nothing much beyond the country's finances will occupy the attention of Congress. [Star Tribune]
