The McConnell Mechanism: Congress Makes Obama a King for Three Months

Congress made President Obama a temporary king the other day. And the crown was placed upon his head by none other than the Senate's top Republican, Mitch McConnell. No joke. On October 16th, Congress passed, and the following day the president signed into law, a bill (H.R.2775) to temporarily suspend the U.S. Government's statutory debt limit and also temporarily shift Congress's borrowing power to the president.
