Another protester said, “And if we have to vote all of you congressmen and senators out and replace you, we will.”
McConnell's office responded with a statement to The Hill on Thursday suggesting the minority leader would not be cowed by liberal protests.
"Senator McConnell believes our top priority must be to get the economy going again, which will put Kentuckians back to work," wrote Robert Steurer, a spokesman for McConnell. "Liberal activist groups like MoveOn.org know how to create good street theatre but judging by their lock-step support of the Obama agenda it appears they don't have the foggiest clue what creates a job."
The activists also dropped off copies of the “Contract for the American Dream” — which calls for more spending, more jobs and fairer taxes — at the offices of McConnell, Rep.
