WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is
inviting President Barack Obama to the Capitol to hear first-hand
why his proposed tax increases will not pass.
In remarks on the Senate floor, McConnell said the invitation is
good for lunch on Thursday, or any time this afternoon that Obama
can make it.
The Kentucky lawmaker made his comments a day after the
president said at a news conference that tax increases on the
wealthy, oil companies and others must be part of any deal to
reduce the deficit and clear the way for raising the nation's debt
