FreedomWorks Legislative Affairs Manager Josh Withrow commented on McConnell saying we’re going to inevitably go over the spending caps:
The spending caps are the only limitation on the growth of government spending that conservatives have achieved since they won control of Congress in 2010. Republicans managed to pass the spend caps then, and they should continue to fight for them now.
Conceding the fight before it even begins is the height of stupidity. It’s not a negotiation if one side gets everything they want. What’s the point of having a Republican majority in the Senate if they won’t even stand up to Obama?
