From one crisis to the next: Mitch McConnell hits the broadcast-network trifecta this morning to explain how he and Joe Biden didn’t solve anything with the fiscal-cliff deal and won’t solve anything with the debt-ceiling standoff either. I’ll be watching him on NBC in case David Gregory decides to illustrate the stakes of hitting the ceiling by producing a live grenade.
Simpson and Bowles will also appear, as is required by federal law whenever the Sunday shows are talking about fiscal issues. The line-up via National Journal:
