When I said that "compassionate conservatism" is dead in today's GOP, a few commenters on my post disagreed with me.
I stand by my assertion. Even more so, after watching in full an interview with Mitch McConnell on Fox News.
Even after being asked repeatedly how Republicans would handle the problem of 30 million uninsured Americans, how they would move toward universal coverage, McConnell kept dodging the question, saying "that's not the issue."
What a jerk. What an uncaring, heartless, uncompassionate jerk. This is the modern GOP: out of ideas, out of caring. Here's the proof.
