McConnell Says He Will Not Allow Another Shutdown

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told The Hill that he will not allow another government shutdown as part of a strategy to repeal Obamacare.

Said McConnell: "One of my favorite old Kentucky sayings is there's 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. There is no education in the second kick of a mule. There will not be a government shutdown."

He added: "I think we have fully now acquainted our new members with what a losing strategy that is."
