He is invisible. He vanishes from the scene. He lurks in the shadows to sabotage conservatives at the most crucial points. Then he swoops down and picks up the carcasses he helped create.
He is Mitch McConnell.
Here are the latest tricks in the invisible man’s grab bag:
There you have it. After holding almost the entire GOP conference in line for the past few weeks in order to ignore Obamacare and sabotage House Republicans, McConnell is now feasting on the carcasses.
Senate Republicans have worked to buttress the Democrats and undermine Republicans throughout this showdown. This is Speaker Boehner’s time to shine. He must tell McConnell to shove it.
The only way Republicans should sign onto this deal is if we have a budget conference on each of the twelve appropriations bills independently. That way HHS and the IRS can be isolated. Let’s discuss funding for Obamacare without Democrats holding everything else hostage. Enough of this CR nonsense. If we are going to pass a four-month budget in order to work out a deal, let’s do it properly – each bill independently. If we can make that demand as a precondition, then we could fight on the HHS and Financial Services bills, only shutting down HHS and IRS if Democrats continue to throw people of their health insurance.
Over the past three years, McConnell has worked to jam the House with bad legislation. House Republicans owe him as much allegiance as they do Chuck Schumer.
