McConnell fight with GOP opponent shifts to new battleground

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) defeated Sen. Rick Scott’s (Fla.) bid to take his job, but the battle isn’t over.

McConnell now faces a fight with Scott and other Senate conservatives over whether to block a year-end spending package before Christmas.

The GOP leader wants to pass the omnibus package funding the federal government before the end of December, according to Senate Republican and Democratic sources. But he’s coming under increasing pressure from conservatives who want to freeze federal spending until January, when Republicans will take control of the House. 

Scott told The Hill he plans to “actively” press for a stopgap funding measure freezing federal spending levels until next year, something he and Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah) and Ted Cruz (Texas) called for in September in a Fox News op-ed. 

That would put spending negotiations on hold until Republicans take over the House majority and have more leverage to negotiate the top-line spending number and specific priorities, such as more funding to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.  ..............

It's not enough that conservatives have to fight the Rats they have to fight the Pubs as well.

First off, I'm done with the Federal level of govt. There seems to be no hope of ever fixing anything there.

Someone up there needs to gain a set of cock and balls, and become a shadow Minority Leader. Raise alot of money, and start primarying Mitch's cronies, and Mitch himself. Tell him to his face you're going to do it. Keep ruthless and relentless pressure on them till they acquiesce or are drummed out of Congress.

Not holding my breath.
We are two countries now.

Go with the army you got.

We have wandered into the territory of dictatorship.

The socialists are pushing the federal level socialism and have the guns to back it up so we cannot just "ignore" the federal issues.

Mr. Chao's number one crony (John Cornyn) is in my crosshairs BIG TIME @Free Vulcan if I live long enough, I fully intend to see the end of that bastard as a senator from Texas and you can rest assured that I'm not alone.
