When Is Mitch McConnell Trying To Pull The Wool Over Your Eyes?

Whenever his lips are moving. Here's the latest bit of chicanery:

On Capitol Hill, however, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said most Republicans support a package that "would be dramatically different from what passed the House, and, frankly, dramatically different from what we currently see out of the [Senate] Finance Committee and the Appropriations Committee."

McConnell stressed that "nobody that I know of is trying to keep a package from passing." Instead, he said, "we're trying to reform it, reformulate it, put it in a different place."

Translation: Mitch McConnell is all for bipartisanship, as long as it doesn't involve working with Congressional Democrats.
