Not that we already didn’t know this but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell goes on record and admits that the GOP held the debt ceiling negotiations hostage in order to get their agenda shoved down our throats and doesn’t rule out doing it again.
But at the Capitol, behind the four doors and the three receptionists and the police guard, McConnell said he could imagine doing this again.
“I think some of our members may have thought the default issue was a hostage you might take a chance at shooting,” he said. “Most of us didn’t think that. What we did learn is this — it’s a hostage that’s worth ransoming. And it focuses the Congress on something that must be done.”
