McConnell: "The tax issue is over"

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the Sunday talk show rounds and made it clear he wants no more tax increases.

"The tax issue is over, finished, completed. That's behind us," the Kentucky Republican told ABC's "This Week." "Now the question is what are we going to do about the biggest problem confronting our country and our future?"

That, he said, "is our spending addiction."

McConnell also made it clear that he would not accept taxes in any new deal.

"Yes, absolutely," he said, when asked if he was ruling out taxes.  "The tax issue is behind us."
