McConnell Breaks With GOP Crazies On Shutdown

“Multiple courts have pushed the pause button on these government vaccine mandates. There is a decent chance the courts will strike them down.

“Secondly, next week we are going to have a vote on the vaccine mandate prohibiting that regulation from going into effect.

“I think it has a decent chance of passing the Senate.I don’t think shutting down the government over this issue is going to get an outcome.

“It would only create chaos and uncertainty. So I don’t think that’s the best vehicle to get this job done. I think the courts are likely to get it done or we’ll pass early next week – freestanding – a measure to overturn the government mandate.

“A shutdown makes no sense for anyone.” – Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, this afternoon on Fox News.
