Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is blaming President Obama for Congress’ passage of a bill that could put Americans on foreign soil in legal jeopardy. McConnell says responsibility for the 9/11 Victims Bill, which Congress overcame a presidential veto to pass, falls squarely on the shoulders of the President.
“He should have told us we were making a big mistake. Once again, this president has stood by and watched while Congress has done something stupid. The sad part is this could have been avoided if the president had told us about the unintended consequences of this bill last week when he told us about the unintended consequences of this bill.”
McConnell said public statements the president and members of his Administration made prior to the bill’s passage were part of a larger pattern.
“The time we almost shut down the government. Those meaningless Obamacare repeal votes. That time we shut down the government. Whenever we do something stupid he warns us not to do it and we wind up doing it anyway. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. You’d think he’d learn.”
