Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says he will not allow another government shutdown as part of a strategy to repeal ObamaCare.
McConnell (Ky.) told The Hill in an interview Thursday afternoon that his party learned a painful political lesson over the past 16 days, as its approval rating dropped while the government was shuttered.
He said theres no reason to go through the political wringer again in January, when the stopgap measure Congress passed late Wednesday is set to expire.
One of my favorite old Kentucky sayings is theres no education in the second kick of a mule. The first kick of a mule was when we shut the government down in the mid-1990s and the second kick was over the last 16 days, he said. There is no education in the second kick of a mule. There will not be a government shutdown.
I think we have fully now acquainted our new members with what a losing strategy that is, he added.
McConnell said that even though he and many other Republicans hate, detest and despise ObamaCare, they are not going to be able to repeal it unilaterally while Democrats control the White House and the Senate....

Maybe a more appropriate name would be “Quisling”. It is a name synonymous with treason.
It sounds as though Barry’s Kommie Kids taught Switch McConnell a lesson. The Senate Is No Gig For Old Men.
“Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says he will not allow another government shutdown as part of a strategy to repeal ObamaCare.”
Excellent example of a blithering idiot: we didn’t shut down the government!!! I’m sick of these cheese-eating surrender monkeys!
Grow some balls or GTFO!
Once again, he surrenders before he even knows what the fight is about.
GOPs McConnell promises no more shutdowns over ObamaCare
Thats BIG TALK unless John Boehner is your “BITCH”...
He’s trying to marginalize Senator Cruz.
Cruz is not going away...nor Lee...nor any of the real republican congressmen....
...and bitchy mitch...it was YOUR house that shut the govt down...the Senate.....who felt so strongly about obammey care that they refused to be placed on it....THAT little bitchy mitch, is what the senate did....THEY shut the govt down...
Time for WE THE PEOPLE to show him who's boss in his primary.
I think the political apparatus needs to be extracted by the scruffs of their necks. Then shamed and stripped of their ill gotten gains and then ridiculed in the public square. May I suggest pay per view?
Well of course not. He got his nut. He’s done.
In other words, he’s telling Sen. Cruz and others “OK kids, we let you play your games and you made a big mess of things, so that’s the last time, we’ll have no more of that”.
They think of themselves as the Grown Ups in the Senate, and the others as a group of rowdy children who now need some discipline. Just like Boner, when he took all the committee chairmanships away from Tea Party Congressmen.
The arrogance grows stronger by the day.
Surrender early and surrender often.
Hence, McConnell's belching.
Nail his hide to the shed, Fred.
Wtf? People do not want Obamacare these republicans are insane.
