Mitch McConnell Admits That Republicans Took America Hostage

Senate Minority Leader Micht McConnell (R-KY)

Much to the shock of the Washington Post, Mitch McConnell admitted that his party took the debt ceiling hostage and by extension, America. He even admitted that many of his Republican colleagues were willing to kill the hostage.

“I think some of our members may have thought the default issue was a hostage you might take a chance at shooting,” he said. “Most of us didn’t think that. What we did learn is this — it’s a hostage that’s worth ransoming. And it focuses the Congress on something that must be done.”

McConnell also stated that he “could imagine doing this again.” In other words, expect the Republican Party to play the part of hostage taking terrorists every time the debt ceiling needs to be raised. And every time the future of America is at stake. This shows how little the Republican Party cares about America and the American people. So next time the right-wing proclaims their love for America, remember that they were willing and are always willing to shoot America in the head for political gain.
