McConnell leads GOP counter-attack against START pact

Senate Republicans mounted a counter-attack Sunday against ratifying a new nuclear arms treaty with Russia this year, trying to put off a vote that Democrats say they will win if it is held.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky led the way, telling CNN's "State of the Union" that members of his party need more time to consider the START accord.

"I've decided I cannot support the treaty," McConnell said in his first outright rejection of ratifying the treaty during the current lame-duck session of Congress.

    phil. 20 100Mg tablets of Imitrex costs $656.00.
    30 ambien costs $174.00.
    20 percocet 5mg costs $119.00.
    A year ago before Obamacare was passed these pills cost 60% of what they cost now. It's like a hurricane hit and permitted price gauging has occurred. This fuker Obama is suppose to be watching out for people. He is not. He is in bed being sodomized by some Gay pharmacuetical man who is thinking of enlisting in the United States Army of B^tt/fuk;rs.
