McConnell: "The Era Of Big Government Being Over Is Officially Over"
U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made a statement on the Senate floor today regarding the need for action from the President to solve Washingtonâ€™s out-of-control spending problem.
"For Democrats in the Obama age, the era of â€˜Big Government Being Overâ€™ is officially over," McConnell said on the Senate floor this morning. "And anybody who disagrees with their new approach isnâ€™t just wrong, theyâ€™re not just standing in the way of progress, they're malevolent. Theyâ€™re the bad guys. They want to take food away from children. They want the old and infirm to suffer. They want to choose between caring for the people who built this country, as the President put it on Monday, and investing in those who will build our future."
"[If Obama] insists on spending the next four years pushing a polarizing, hard-left agenda instead, I assure him heâ€™ll meet a determined opposition not only from Republicans in Washington, but from the very people he seems to believe are squarely on his side in the push to remake government in his image," McConnell said today on the floor.
