Kentucky Kickback: Senate Budget Deal Includes Billion For Dam Project In McConnell’s Home State


Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has sold out the Republican party for a dam in the deal between Democrats and Republicans in the United States senate that is now being called the Kentucky Kickback. The senate budget deal includes three billion dollars for a dam project In Kentucky.  It is time that McConnell is held accountable for his betrayal of conservatives.  President of FreedomWorks Matt Kibbe issued a statement regarding the deal between the senate minority leader and senate majority leader Harry Reid:  “Republican leadership has completely lost its way. Not only is this proposal a full surrender- it’s a complete surrender with presents for the Democrats. Apparently Mitch McConnell’s idea of a ‘compromise’ is to increase the debt limit, fully fund a broken health care law, and promise talks of increasing spending down the road.”
