Maverick Is In His Element, Making Lefties Love Him Again

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before

In the latest expression of Republican frustration with conservative GOP colleagues, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Susan Collins (R-ME) excoriated Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) for persistently refusing to initiate House-Senate budget negotiations.

Their comments on the Senate floor Tuesday reflect a growing Republican schism over how to approach the tax and spending fights that have hamstrung Congress for years and dragged its approval ratings to historic lows.

Here outside of the Progressive mothership we know that disgruntlement by McCain or Collins do not a schism make. In fact, if they are both irritated at the same time it more often than not means the GOP is doing something right for once.

Nowhere in the post is it explained how a guy who has been a senator for two years and another who’s had the job for four months are reflective of a problem that Congress has had “for years”.
