Mitch McConnell on cutting entitlement programs (e.g. Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid):



I guess you gotta have someone to blame if you want to take away those beloved 'entitlements'.
He does have a point. And government does work that way. Not sure why you are so critical about this statement. Seems you get triggered by a lot of things.

Remember this from back in 1993 ('cos we live in dog years now)? Anyway, there's an update don'tchaknow... Records unsealed and, what's this..? He *didn't* assault his ex!?!

Emjay, you got some 'splanin to do.

The Jury is still out on this one.
Not that I subscribe to the idea of a Blue Wave etc. I find your news source to be interesting -

The Daily Caller is a conservative American news and opinion website based in Washington, D.C. It was founded by political pundit Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel in 2010.
Totally not biased.

And yes inb4 CNN etc are all biased / fake news / the devil, the beast, apocalyptic etc etc.
