Chuck Schumer Introduces the ‘McConnell Rule’ | RedState

October 21, 2013 0 Comments

Last week, I noted which Mitch McConnell’s slick debt ceiling program might pave the road for forever abolishing the debt limit, because lengthy because members might receive a ceremonial vote of disapproval.  Well, it didn’t take lengthy for the idea to develop origins.  On Meet the Press, Chuck Schumer, whom has enthusiastically praised McConnell for doing his bidding, announced which he might introduce legislation echoing the “McConnell tip.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) may propose legislation which might create lasting a program to take the choice to raise the country’s debt limit from Congress’s hands.

By generating the so-called “McConnell rule” lasting, the president might have ultimate authority to raise the debt limit plus avoid the United States from defaulting.

Congress might nonetheless have force to oppose raising the debt ceiling, however wouldn't need to vote to grow the borrowing limit.

“If you were to do which, the possibilities of going as much as the brink again, the possibilities of the form of debacle, might decrease,” Schumer mentioned about NBC’s “Meet the Press” about Sunday.

Late about Wednesday, the Home plus Senate passed legislation to raise the $16.7 trillion debt limit plus reopen the federal government.

The irony here is the fact that McConnell has created it obvious he is abandoning any speak of Obamacare plus might rather focus about spending plus debt inside the abstract.  We already explained why it happens to be dumb plan plus stupid politics to focus about unique spending cuts rather of Obamacare plus different dangerous government interventions which destroy jobs, raise the expense of living, plus infringe on individual liberties.  However the idea which we'll ever fight against more spending whenever McConnell has provided the farm away about any future debt ceiling leverage is absurd.

Ask oneself this question: whenever was the last time a Democrat scored points for the side – to the extent a traditional associate was capable to name a direction following which individual?

Ask oneself another question: how are you ever going to build a Senate most with members that score more points for the additional team than the Democrats do for themselves?

It’s time you introduce the Republican tip.  If you function harder to fight for the different side than for the Republican base, we should discover another job.
