Mitch McConnell is a spin master


Senate Democrats are filibustering the House DHS funding bill, due to its stipulation that does not allow President Obama to use the funds to implement his immigration executive action.

Republicans don’t want to be blamed for a Homeland Security shutdown, so it is important to throw this back across the aisle. Mitch McConnell does it perfectly:

Democrats voted today to continue blocking funding for the Department of Homeland Security, to protect actions President Obama referred to himself as ‘ignoring the law,’” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) said Monday evening.
