Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared on Face the Nation and told host Bob Schieffer that now, when there is divided government and not one branch running everything, is the perfect time to tackle entitlement reform. Unfortunately, in McConnell’s opinion, President Obama is not at all serious about wanting to do anything about it.
McConnell pleaded, “Where’s the President? Where’s the leadership? We’re prepared to do difficult things, but he must be a part of it.” He then went on to claim that the Obama administration is in denial about the financial status of social security. Although, McConnell may have saved his harshest remarks for the guest that appeared right before him on the show, suggesting “when my friend John Kerry says cutting government spending is ‘reckless,’ I’m wondering what planet is he living on?”
