    Hold on to your hats.

    Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. R-Ky., Sunday said he will not accept any new revenue in future deals with congressional Democrats and President Obama.

    "The tax issue is finished. Over. Completed," McConnell told me on "This Week." "That's behind us. Now the question is what are we going to do about the biggest problem confronting our country and that's our spending addiction.

    "We didn't have this problem because we weren't taxing enough," McConnell added.

    He blamed Obama and Democrats for waiting to resolve budget issues until the last minute.

    "Why we end up in these last-minute discussions is beyond me. We need to function," McConnell said. "I mean, the House of Representatives, for example, passed a budget every year. They've passed appropriation bills.

    "The Senate Democratic majority and the president seem to like these last-minute deals."

    McConnell said that the biggest issue facing the country in the next year is the deficit and spending. And he predicted that the issue would occupy the congressional agenda in the first three months of the year, overtaking Obama's other priorities, including gun control. <portions snipped>
    No new taxes. Cut spending. No last minute BS with the Senate and the WH. Welcome to "stuff Conservatives have been screaming about" Mitch. Now go out and properly sell it to the American Taxpayer. Sheesh.

    Let's see how this goes. Hopefully he has the sack to see it through.
