GOP Leader McConnell: Nuclear Option Doesn’t ‘Distract from Obamacare,’ It ‘Reminds’ Voters of It (Video)

Today Democrats broke over 200 years of tradition by passing the “nuclear option” in the US senate. The new rule allows Democrats to use a simple 51 majority to avoid filibusters.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) responded to this maneuver on Thursday by chastising Democrats in the Senate for attempting to “change the subject” from the problematic Obamacare roll-out.

“But here’s the problem with this latest distraction. It doesn’t distract people from Obamacare, it reminds them of Obamacare.”
