Just days after negotiating America’s rescue from the fiscal cliff, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says the work isn’t done when it comes to spending cuts and entitlement reform — and he won’t rule out a government shutdown as the means by which to secure those changes.
McConnell appeared on NBC‘s “Meet the Press” with David Gregory on Sunday morning, and the two men got in a intense back-and-forth about the possibility of a government shutdown.
“If you are not satisfied that you’re dealing with the spending issue, the entitlement issue, the way you think it ought to be dealt with, would you rule out a government shutdown to achieve your goals?” Gregory asked.
“What I think we ought to do is to encourage the President to actually be President, address the single biggest issue confronting the future of our country,” McConnell answered.
Senate Minority Leader McConnell says government shutdown is not totally out of the question
