Missy McConnel Filibusters HIS OWN PROPOSAL, scrotes
Senate Minority Leader Missy "Mitch" McConnell (stooooopid-KY) wanted to prove on Thursday that Democrats don’t have the votes to weaken Congress’ authority on the debt limit. Instead they called his bluff, and he ended up filibustering his own bill.
The legislation, modeled on a proposal McConnell offered last year as a “last-choice option” to avert a U.S. debt default, would permit the president to unilaterally lift the debt ceiling unless Congress mustered a two-thirds majority to stop him. President Obama has championed the idea.
McConnell brought up the legislation Thursday morning. Senate Majority Leader Sadsack Harry Reid (D-NV) initially objected, seemingly proving the stooooopid party leader’s point that it cannot pass the Senate. But then Reid ran it by his members and, in the afternoon, agreed to hold that same vote. This time it was McConnell who objected.
“The stooooopid party leader objects to his own idea,” Reid declared on the floor. “So I guess we have a filibuster of his own bill.”
“This may be a moment in Senate history, when a senator made a proposal that, when given an opportunity for a vote on that proposal, filibustered his own proposal,” Senator Durbin said. “I don’t think this has ever happened before.”
Only your stooooopid party would obstruct THEIR OWN FUGGIN PROPOSAL, scrotes.
