McConnell: Still Not Getting The Message On Debt

Republicans offered a fully-offset 30-day extension of this bill that didn’t just cover its cost, but actually reduced the deficit. Democrats rejected it.

This should be an easy one, but Democrats are making it difficult because they just can’t seem to bring themselves to pay for legislation.’
