Laura Ingraham hosted Senator Mitch McConnell.
McConnell said President Obama's State of the Union speech was pure liberal orthodoxy with little evidence of plans to deal with entitlements. He accused Obama of trying to control the government and said if big spending and big government were effective, we'd be in a huge boom. He slammed Obama blocking the Keystone pipeline and shutting down coal mining. He said it's a huge challenge with a rogue White House.
McConnell said it's mind boggling that House Minority Leader would say the US doesn't have a debt problem. He said our debt is causing our economy to be tepid.
McConnell praised Senators Marco Rubio and Rand Paul's response to the State of the Union address.
