More Debt Kamikazes: Senator Mike Lee (R-UT)
From an appearance on Hardball:
MATTHEWS: And you think you’re being reasonable by saying you want a two-thirds vote in the House, which is Republican, and in the Senate which is Democrat. You want the Democratic Senate, by a two-thirds vote, to pass a constitutional amendment or you want the house to come down?
LEE: Yes. That’s exactly what I’m saying and I’ve been saying this for six months.
Ok, so to Senator Lee “compromise” (see the video) appears to mean: give me the impossible, or else we can see what happens to the economy.
Lee was the Tea Party candidate who won the nomination after US Senator Bob Bennett failed to receive the nomination at the Utah GOP’s state convention.
