Sen. McConnell; Will work to keep Obama from a 2nd term - CSPAN


Fresh off Republican gains in the midterm election, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is providing details on how his party will move forward on its agenda in the 112th Congress at a speech at the Heritage Foundation. The Republicans took control of the U.S House, while Democrats maintained control in the Senate following Tuesday's vote.

In his speech, Sen. McConnell said, "On the economy, we will work hard to ensure Democrats don’t raise taxes on anybody, especially in the middle of a recession."

During a press conference with other Republican leaders yesterday, Sen. McConnell explained his view on why the Democrats lost seats saying, the election showed that "choosing the president over your constituents is not a good strategy," and that voters "appreciated us saying ‘no’ to the things the American people indicated they were not in favor of."
