McConnell Gets Tough

Presumptive new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told the brutal truth about what is required to accomplish the Republican agenda. Speaking to The Heritage Foundation, as reported by Howard Kurtz in The Daily Beast, McConnell said:
If our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill; to end the bailouts; cut spending; and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things is to put someone in the White House who won't veto any of these things.
Talk about flinging down the gauntlet. I doubt that sentiment will make cooperation with the White House any easier.
