Mere hours after Senator McConnell undermined every student and their parents in KY and the United States by voting against Elizabeth Warren's bill regarding student loans, Senator Warren showed him there will be a price to pay.

The bill was paid tor by an increase on taxes for the 1% so of course McConnell went with the rich and prevented Republican Senators from voting in favor of American students. No surprise there. Senator Warren said enough already and while on MSNBC last night she announced that she would be going to KY to campaign for Alison Lundergan Grimes. Grimes had previously indicated her support of the bill.

The "Turtle" has previously tried to negatively tie Grimes to Warren but I just don't think he gets it. McConnell should spend some time looking at Cantor. They both have upside down personal approval ratings and were/are in leadership that only knows one word, no.

It just may have reached the point where no isn't enough anymore and that you just need to be for something every once in a while.

Warren is attempting to solve problems and help middle class Americans. McConnell is only capable of saying no and never offers any solution.

My bet is that the citizens of KY will respond well to the message of Warren and that McConnell will regret his vote and regret trying to tie Grimes to Warren. Paybacks can be Hell.

8:19 AM PT: New poll Grimes up by 3 points in KY within margin of error.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
