McCain: ‘I Don’t Understand’ Filibustering Gun Control

Senator McCain, you’ve served inside the Beltway for so long, and the Senate is such hard work. Wouldn’t you rather just retire and be with your friends?

Sen. John McCain (R-Sunday Shows) expressed bewilderment on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that GOP Sens. Cruz, Lee and Paul would filibuster gun control legislation. “I don’t understand it,” McCain said. “The purpose of the United States Senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand.” With all due respect to Sen. McCain, that is almost completely backward.

The purpose of the US Senate is not to be some federal debating society. It is not tasked with taking the great issues of the day and giving its “august” members a platform for their musings on policy. The public does not look to the Senate for guidance in its deliberations on the issues.

The Senate’s first, and only, task is to uphold the Constitution. Read more at breitbart.com.
