SOTU Crib Sheet 3/3

Today... minimizing the political and economic fallout from Washington's latest so-called "manufactured crisis."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spoke about what's next now that the mandatory budget cuts are in effect and whether a bipartisan compromise is on the horizon. "We promised the American people we would do this a year and a half ago. And here we are, already walking away from the spending reductions that we promised to make without tax increases."
McConnell also weighed in on his reelection effort for 2014 and criticized a group in Kentucky that made reference to his wife's ethnicity in a tweet. "There's a left-wing group down here in Kentucky that's already issued racial slurs against my wife and already questioned my own patriotism."
