McConnell Caught Threatening Another Government Shutdown!

How about another government shutdown from the US Senate?
What follows is more validation of my often state belief the GOP is a puppet political party for the uber wealthy. Well, beyond Mitt Romney's shadowy Boca Raton comments to wealthy dinners, Senate Minority Leaders McConnell proves the ultimate "butt-sucking" by waving yet another government shutdown for those who literally pay for obstruction. 

"So in the House and Senate, we own the budget. So what does that mean? That means that we can pass the spending bill. And I assure you that in the spending bill, we will be pushing back against this bureaucracy by doing what's called placing riders in the bill. No money can be spent to do this or to do that. We're going to go after them on health care, on financial services, on the Environmental Protection Agency, across the board. ... All across the federal government, we're going to go after it," McConnell said at a private summit hosted by the Koch Brothers.

The following YouTube clip is of very weak audio fidelity, but the voice is distinct as that of McConnell.

As is often the case with GOP operatives like Karl Rove, Jim Demint and Dick Armey, McConnell was caught signing to a choir that spends billions working against the president and of the United States. Whether you are an Obama hater, one who loathes Democrats and left leaning independents, or a moderate conservative, McConnell's use of the last failed GOP federal government shut-down (@$24 billion) should offend you.  If McConnell's secret meeting groveling for attending billionaires does not offend you, you are seriously wasting your time reading this piece. If you are wasting you time reading this piece, you are an existential member of the choir to, which McConnell sings.

Why does the annual Koch Brothers secret retreat always include language and presentation/speaking points that smack against middle and lower income America?
