McConnell introduces continuing resolution to fund gov. until Feb. 18th

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) introduced a one-page continuing resolution Thursday that funds the government through Feb. 18th.

Exactly what I was thinking they should do.  The democrats have presented a false choice – either accept their bill for the entire year of 2011 filled with over 6,000 earmarks, or shut down the government.

This is the solution.  It’s a good common sense solution.  Continue to fund the government through February when the new congress, elected by the people in November, can take up the issue.
