Whatever "he says":

This is typical:
When [Chris] Wallace asked [Sen. Mitch] McConnell if he supports "turning Medicare from a fee-for-service plan to a voucher plan," the senator replied, "Paul Ryan would say it's not a voucher plan, it's a premium support plan." When asked what the difference is, McConnell simply replied, "He says it is different."


Sounds like Richard Nixon when explaining what he meant when he said _________. I don't think Chris Wallace's father would have stopped pursuing for an answer. Sen. McConnell is afraid of the potential sound bite with a straight, responsive answer.
