Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell is expressing his criticism of President Obama for not being a leader in dealing with the nation's long-term debt.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky told CBS' "Face the Nation" that "this president needs to become the adult" on entitlement reform and cutting the deficit.
