McConnell will not bring budget resolution to the floor
By Alexander Bolton - 02/11/20 03:20 PM EST

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says he will not bring a budget resolution to the Senate floor this year, even though Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) says he plans to put one together.

McConnell said Congress will instead stick to the spending caps agreed to last year with President Trump.

“I can’t imagine that we can reach an agreement on a budget with this particular House of Representatives,” McConnell told reporters, referring to the ideological gulf between him and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).


“We’ve got the caps deal in place. We negotiated it last year. It’s good for the second year and we’ll comply with that,” he said.
