Top 10 Bad Votes by Mitch McConnell 1. McConnell Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare(2013, RCV 206) Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky voted to end debate and allow Senate Democrats to re-insert funding for ObamaCare into the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government. Although McConnell did vote against the final bill, he and all Republicans knew that voting for cloture to end debate would allow Senator Harry Reid to fund ObamaCare by a party-line vote, and thus a vote for cloture was a de facto vote to fund ObamaCare.

There Is No Fiscal Victory in the Omnibus

The omnibus bill being fast-tracked through Congress increases spending.  This simple fact apparently escapes some members of Congress, several of whom have been telling their constituents that the bill was a victory because our spending levels are now lower than in recent years. The House Appropriations Committee is using the following chart as proof that conservatives have scored a major victory (the red edits are ours):

See How Your Senators Voted on the Ryan/Murray Budget Deal Here!

The Senate voted today to end debate on the budget deal reached by Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA). This tax-and-spend deal blows the top off of the budget caps set back in 2011, and raises taxes (or, if you prefer, fees), while claiming to reduce the deficit over ten years with mostly phony cuts that will likely never materialize. With the cloture vote passed, the Democrats can now pass this deal with a simple majority.
