Mitch McConnell Filibusters His Own Bill

This serves as more proof on just how dysfunctional the GOP has become.

In their effort to undermine the Dems and specifically President Obama, who McConnell announced would be a one-term President through a concerted GOP effort, they have only shown their gross ineptitude and inability to govern under any circumstance.

In this case it was a debt reduction legislative plan that Sen. McConnell proposed…and then objected to.  The Senator filibustered his OWN proposal.

Democratic Underground

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) may have made United States senate history today when he beat his own legislative baloney, blocking a straight up-or-down vote on a proposal that he, himself, offered for a vote Thursday morning. The bill, which would have taken the debt ceiling gun away from the head of the U.S. economy by requiring a two-thirds majority to override a presidential increase to the debt ceiling, was McConnell’s idea, but when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid agreed with McConnell’s request for a vote on the bill Thursday afternoon, McConnell objected.
