McConnell Says Tax Overhaul Is His Second-Greatest Achievement

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he considers the landmark tax legislation poised to pass Congress this week as only the second-greatest achievement of his career.

The Kentucky Republican said hes proudest of ensuring a Republican-nominated justice could replace Antonin Scalia -- which McConnell made possible by refusing to let former President Barack Obama fill the position during his last year in office.

"For me personally, it would be Neil Gorsuch and the changes were making in the circuit courts," McConnell said in an interview Tuesday. "But this would be a really close second," he said referring to the tax bill.

7. Denying a sitting President his constitutional right to have his SC nominee voted on was his #1????

Let that sink in a bit.

If this country survives, he will certainly make the history books, but he will not be admired.

8. Talking about civil unrest, when McConnell refused the American people the SC justice they voted for

if we were ever going to actually stand up for ourselves in a way that risked it all, it had to be then.

That act was so egregious, so unconstitutional and violent. Dont know what to say beyond that.

13. Where is the weak link in our system that allows these monsters to wield such power? He's been

screwing the US for years. He's been senior senator from KY since 1985. His only skill is obstructionism. What a heap.

18. It really wasn't

In comparison with the ACA, or previous major tax overhauls, this was done at warp-speed.
