“So in the House and Senate, we own the budget. So what does that mean? That means that we can pass the spending bill. And I assure you that in the spending bill, we will be pushing back against this bureaucracy by doing what’s called placing riders in the bill. No money can be spent to do this or to do that. We’re going to go after them on health care, on financial services, on the Environmental Protection Agency, across the board. … All across the federal government, we’re going to go after it,” McConnell said at a private summit hosted by the Koch Brothers.
The “politics of obstruction:” who would benefit if McConnell and the Koch Brothers had their way? It sure wouldn’t be us. A vote for Martha Robertson, against Tom Reed, is a vote against McConnell, the obstructionist “party of the rich,” and Koch.
