WASHINGTON (CNN) - Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that President Obama's stimulus package would have little, if any, impact on the economy - and re-stated his opposition to including any public option in the upcoming health care overhaul.
“I’m very skeptical that the spending binge that we’re on is going to produce much good and, even if it does, anytime soon, " said McConnell. "And I think the economy is just as likely to begin to recover on its own, wholly aside from this, before much of this has an impact. So I’m very skeptical that this massive sort of spending binge that we’ve engaged in is going to have much of an impact.”
