McConnell objects to going to conference on the Budget resolution, again
Senator Warner asked consent that the Senate go to conference on the Budget resolution. Senator McConnell asked that the request be modified so that it not be in order for the Senate to consider a conference report that includes tax increases or reconciliation instructions to increase taxes or raise the debt ceiling. Senator Murray objected to modifying the request. Senator McConnell then objected to the original request.
