Does this seal the deal for Americans being uninformed about economic policy? The debt limit debate is looking to be far more dramatic and potentially far more dangerous than the last CR debate. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has already outlined a plan that would prevent GOP senators from filibustering, therefore forcing all 51 Dems to vote for a raise. This would put the 17 Dems who are up for election in 2012 in a predicament, where the necessity of raising the debt limit would battle the possibility of GOP attack ads targeting their debt limit vote. Good to see Mitch McConnell, again, using the Senate's rules for the good of the country. He truly is a great American/ turtle creature.
