No, Senator McConnell, "the American people" are most certainly NOT asking any such thing of you.
What's being asked of you, and not by "the American people," is to preserve present arrangements. The ones asking it of you are 1) special interests making big money from the status quo and 2) ideologues, along with followers manipulated into believing in death panels.
"The American people." Whenever I hear or read that phrase it sets off my bullshit alarm.
""The American people are asking us to stop this bill and we're going to do anything and everything we can to prevent this measure from becoming law," he said."
