Moment of Candor

Most Politicians do not do it very often and republicans even less so, but Senator McConnell recently had a rare moment of candor. H/T Think Progress:

The time has come for a balanced budget amendment that forces Washington to balance its books. If these debt negotiations have convinced us of anything, it’s that we can’t leave it to politicians in Washington to make the difficult decisions that they need to get our fiscal house in order. The balanced budget amendment will do that for them. Now is the moment. No more games. No more gimmicks. The Constitution must be amended to keep the government in check. We’ve tried persuasion. We’ve tried negotiations. We’ve tried elections. Nothing has worked.

Yes the republicans despise elections. How can an elected official say this and not be held to account? Where is the tea party?
