Our new Senate Majority leader has been the main obstructionist in the GOP for years. When Obama was elected in 2008, McConnell famously declared that he would do everything possible to kill anything Obama proposed. Filibuster after filibuster, all to keep Obama from achieving anything (he's BLACK!!!), and placing the American economy in neutral...all so the Republicans could keep White America and Corporate America fat and happy. Not very patriotic if you ask me. McConnell is a huge advocate of Big Coal...I wonder why that is? Could it be that someone from Kentucky is in the back pocket of the coal industry? Nah. Anyone see anything wrong with that? On the ACA, the first thing McConnell did was openly declare he would kill it, and he promptly has doubled-down on all of the policies and rhetoric straight out of the Bush years. In other words, we need to return to the failed policies and backwards economic and social thinking that got us in to trouble in the first place. Let the "free market" decide. Right. How is a free market even possible when Corporate America controls the very market forces they declare to be a free, self-correcting force? Logically impossible, but that doesn't keep the Right from believing in the myth of the free market and spouting it's non-existent virtues. Take coal for instance, the biggest pollution source on the planet, and a huge contributor to global warming. The "free market", should it decide that coal isn't a good idea,will be overruled by pro-coal policies from people like...Mitch McConnell. He's a crook, too. But you already knew that.
