As reported today in the Wall Street Journal, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) proves once again that there isn't a dime's worth of difference between Big Government Democrats and Big Government Republicans. Mr. McConnell would love to settle the Debt Ceiling and Spending problems by simply breaking from the Constitution and giving the purse to Obama.
"In one sign that top leaders worry they won't reach a deal in time, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) unveiled a new proposal that would allow President Barack Obama to raise on his own the federal borrowing limit by $2.4 trillion in three installments before the end of 2012, unless two-thirds of Congress votes to block it.
