Conservatives aren’t getting anywhere with their misinformation campaign against the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. But there’s always the ol’ reliable: obstruction.
CQ reports that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked a routine move (requiring unanimous consent) to appoint members to a House-Senate conference committee to reconcile differences between the two SCHIP bills.
Open KY notes that McConnell’s obstruction followed a floor speech “decry[ing] partisanship.” Of course, the bill he’s obstruction passed with significant bipartisan support. Says Open KY: “The man just has no principle whatsoever, and he obviously thinks Kentuckians are too stupid to follow his crazy little games.”
