Mitch McConnell Has to Go

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell walk side-by-side to the Senate Chamber at the U.S. Capitol...

The Senate passed legislation on Thursday to raise the debt ceiling through early December, after a small cluster of Republicans temporarily put aside their objections and allowed action to stave off the threat of a first-ever federal default.

The action came the day after Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, partly backed down from his blockade on raising the debt limit, offering a temporary reprieve as political pressure mounted to avoid being blamed for a fiscal calamity.
