McConnell hits back at Democrats on Ryan plan
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell went on attack against Democrats this morning on the Senate floor, criticizing their attempt to capitalize on the controversial Rep. Paul Ryan Medicare plan by holding a vote on Ryan's budget this week.

"They aren't even pretending to put principle over politics here," the Kentucky Republican said. "According to Senator Schumer, their focus is on an election -- that's still almost two years away! Well, my suggestion is that Democrats start thinking about putting their names on something other than an attack ad. They could start with a budget."
