The Uniparty is poised to strike again.
[Sen. Mitch] McConnell urges passage of 'bi-partisan' funding resolution.
With less than 6 days to go before the government runs out of money, Congress will vote this week on a stop gap measure that would fund the government through December.
What is not in the Continuing Resolution [CR] is far more significant than what it contains. Not included are any controversial policy riders. Funding the battle [against] the Zika virus is included, but at reduced levels.
. . .
The fact that the CR funds the government at levels agreed upon last year is irrelevant. Those levels are unacceptable because they add tens of billions to the deficit. The military is upset because the reduced funding agreed to will hamper operations and readiness.
About the only people who are truly happy with this CR are the bureaucrats who will once again be able to expand their power through additional funding.
If this is "bi-partisanship," give me gridlock every day.
Amen to that. Read the rest here, including extracts from Sen. Mitch McConnell’s statement.
