Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” newly elected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told Dana Bash that he is ready and willing to negotiating with President Obama.
McConnell said, “The first two years he had huge majorities in the House and Senate. The last four years they controlled the Senate. They guaranteed he never got anything he didn’t like. Now he needs to talk to us and that’s good. When American people elect a divided government they’re not saying they don’t want anything done. They are saying they want things done in the political center, things that both sides can agree on.”
“I’m not opposed to negotiating with the administration,” adding, “So I don’t object to negotiating with him. I’ve done it in the past.”
