Stupidity knows no bounds.
Newsweek headline from 17 hours ago: “McConnell Calls For Cuts to Social Security And Medicare”
Yesterday, Mitch McConnell stated to Newsweek’s Nicole Goodkind, the only way to reduce the federal deficit is by cutting Medicare and Social Security.
McConnell, of course, is 100% correct. But, holy crap, McConnell opens this can of worms for Republican candidates across the nation 3 weeks out from the midterms - Just when Republicans are gaining steam. The timing could not be worse.
To use a football analogy: It’s like fumbling the ball at the one yard line as you are getting ready to score the game-winning touchdown.
