Sen. Mitch McConnell has returned from Christmas, and is threatening to kill unemployment insurance for 2 million Americans unless he gets spending cuts.
Senate history may have been made today when GOP Sen Mitch McConnell attempted to filibuster his own bill on the debt ceiling. Reid called him out, 'I guess we have a filibuster of his own bill.'
America won four more years for President Obama, but did we issue a mandate for change or for the status quo?
Mitch McConnell admitted that Republicans don't care if Americans don't have healthcare by stating on Fox News Sunday that uninsured Americans aren't an issue.

I don’t dislike many people. I hate a few – the boss who fired me with 4 kids at home; Limbaugh; people like that. But I generally don’t dislike most fellow earthlings. There is one crepey-necked creep however, who stands out in the dislike department. I dislike what he says. I dislike what he stands for and I especially dislike the way he looks. It’s not because he’s ugly. I like a lot of ugly people. Hell, I’m getting more repulsive by the year. I don’t dislike him because of his age either; he just turned 70 and I’m in no position to make age an issue.
If Kyl, DeMint, and McConnell are such devout Christians, why do their voting records belie their claim that they are followers of Christ? Shouldn’t their single-mindedness of faith permeate every aspect of their personal and working lives?
Mitch McConnell and his Republican brethren are holding legislation hostage until the Democrats give them tax cuts for the rich.

Democrats are beginning to realize that negotiating with Republicans "is almost like negotiating with terrorists".
The sixth tenet of the Tea Party is to end corruption and yet they've aligned themselves with the most corrupt party. Corruption spreads on both sides of the aisle. Of late, it’s made a happy home in the Republican Party simply because like mold, corruption takes root in the right environment. The modern day Republican Party is loath to hold its leaders accountable for violating ethics laws. The list of busted criminals and cheats currently in office is astounding.
A dark storm is brewing over the Senate as Republicans obstruct Presidential nominees in record numbers, abusing secret hold and laundering holds in an attempt to outrun Senate rules. The Republicans' unprecedented use of secret holds has almost brought government to a standstill, and yet they've avoided all accountability for their actions by hiding under the cloak of anonymity. Senator Claire McCaskill tried to force them to own up to their holds this week.
Democrats are ultimately responsible for solving the problem of the gridlock. But Democrats can't force Republicans to work together to solve the country's problems, and frankly, this meme only reinforces the illogical idea the Democrats have power over Republicans. Blaming Democrat for GOP obstructionism is ridiculous. That's like blaming a domestic violence victim for the abuser's behavior. Democrats have control over their own behavior, and their only choice right now is to overcome the GOP obstructionism using any legal means necessary.
