While reports say President Obama stormed out of a debt meeting with the GOP yesterday, MO Senator Claire McCaskill showed her frustration with the process in a humorously loopy appearance on Morning Joe.
Later McCaskill admitted maybe she shouldn’t be so harsh on McConnell, but stressed that she was disappointed that his statements and his plan are so “brazenly political.” Instead she wishes everyone could put politics aside for ten minutes, get a deal done, and then McConnell can return to his obvious mission of doing everything possible to become Majority Leader in the Senate.
“Why aren’t the Republicans stepping up and saying we need to get rid of all these tax goodies and lower the corporate rate, lower the individual rate and apply some of the money towards the deficit. That’s the thing that can make the deal right now. And for the life of me, I can’t figure out – I think Mitch McConnell, frankly, has lost his mind.”
