Link
WASHINGTON, July 2 (UPI) -- U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he won't support a proposal to include a balanced-budget amendment in a deal to raise the debt ceiling.

The Hill reported Saturday McConnell has come under fire from Tea Party leaders to include the amendment in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, but McConnell has said he won't do so because it has no chance of passing.
