Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY): “You know, nothing is done easily in the Senate. But as you call recall, I said at the beginning of my time as majority leader that the open amendment process was going to be the rule rather than the exception. We've done that. When you have to be open for amendment, it presents the opportunity for troublesome proposals from both sides. But we saw what the Senate looked like when nothing happened: 15 roll call votes in all of 2014; no budget for the last five years. We're not going to have that kind of Senate this year. And we'll just take our chances. You know, we're big men and women. We're prepared to vote on proposals that are offered from both sides.” Press Conference with Speaker Ryan, 1/14/16 close
