McConnell predicts filibuster of financial reform
The Wall Street reform bill may eventually pass in the Senate but not before it faces a filibuster, according Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Fox News’ Chris Wallace pressed McConnell Sunday on whether he would have the 41 senators needed to filibuster the bill when it comes up for a vote Monday. “It’s my expectation we will not go forward with the partisan bill,” answered McConnell.
“We don’t have a bipartisan compromise yet but I think there is a good chance we’re going to get it. What I’d like to see is an opportunity to prevent the Democrats to doing from the financial services industry what they just did to the health care of this country,” said McConnell.
