The right answer would have been that there will not be any debate about the 2nd Amendment before, during or after any financial problem discussions. So, let's get on with the money trouble talks.
McConnell just said that our freedom was less important than money issues.
McConnell doesn’t run the Senate. He doesn’t set the agenda - the liberal Democrats do.
That said, McConnell has promised all kinds of things - then at the last minute turns around and recants. The “fiscal cliff” negotiations a week ago were the last thing he gave the left.
You actually think McConnell is going to stop the left from doing anything it wants?
