McConnell Slams Obama, Says GOP Will Not Shut Down Government

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hammered President Barack Obama on issues ranging from net neutrality to immigration at his weekly news conference Thursday, while praising Senate Democrats for their “epiphany” on the Keystone XL pipeline.

McConnell also twice refuted the notion Republicans would shut down the government over Obama’s expected executive action on immigration, amid speculation House Republicans may attach a rider to a December spending bill blocking funding for the action.
