Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared in a speech over the weekend that President Barack Obama’s legislative agenda was over. Funny, I thought the American public told that to the Democrats and Obama in the 2010 midterm elections when “We the People” overwhelmingly voted out Democrats in the House, Senate, Governors and state legislatures.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared Saturday that President Barack Obama’s legislative agenda is “over,” but said GOP lawmakers are willing to work with the White House to do what they “think is right for America.”
