Mitch McConnell's deception:

As found in the Republican weekly response, which he was the spokesman for this Saturday:
The task for Democrats in the House was to craft a stimulus plan that was timely, targeted, and temporary. Apparently, they didn’t get the memo. The bill they presented -- and which House Democrats approved this week along a party line vote -- looks more like a $1 trillion Christmas list.
There was a party line vote, but it was the Republicans who aligned completely against the bill. Democrats were not unanimous.

A more apt characterization would be that Congress approved a bill along party lines. But McConnell would have you believe that it's only Democrats who are voting along party lines and are, hence, partisans (upsetting David Broder in the process).
