McConnell Pledges No Government Shutdown

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) "tried to quash talk that he would allow another government shutdown if he becomes Senate majority leader next year," CNN reports.

Said McConnell: "Of course not. Remember me? I am the guy that gets us out of shutdowns."

Brian Beutler: "He's threatening to use the appropriations process as leverage to extract concessions. That's a government shutdown fight. And no matter how he plays it, he will unleash forces he and other GOP leaders have proven incapable of restraining."
