McCain Sides With Dems On Budget Debate
Senator John McCain criticized fellow Republicans this week, saying that GOP objections to moving forward with a budget — even one that increases the debt ceiling — could encumber future Republican initiatives.
McCain told Senators that if Republicans require conditions before moving forward with the budget deliberations, nothing prevents similar action on future bills like the farm bill currently on the floor or immigration legislation later in the year.
“If we agree that a small number of senators could basically change the way the Senate does business, it could have serious ramifications in the future,” McCain said.
“If we continue to block things like this and block what is the regular order, than the majority will be tempted to change the rules of the Senate,” McCain added. “That would be the most disastrous outcome anyone could imagine.”
