BULLITT COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Taxes and spending took center stage in Bullitt County when Senator Mitch McConnell spoke at the Paroquet Springs Center on Tuesday.

McConnell showed a chart claiming Presidents Barack Obama's tax hike requests will not put a dent in the spending problem. He said congress needs to stick to its guns regarding a bill the Obama signed to cut spending by 2.6 percent.

McConnell also said he's hearing from business owners that health care plan costs are soaring as much as 800 percent. He said the costs are a ripple effect of Obama's healthcare plan.
