Igor Bobic: McConnell Rules Out Future Government Shutdowns:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell… ruled out shutting down the government in exchange for policy change…. “One of my favorite old Kentucky sayings is there’s no education in the second kick of a mule. The first kick of a mule was when we shut the government down in the mid 1990s and the second kick was over the last 16 days. There is no education in the second kick of a mule. There will not be a government shutdown."
