Reid: Republicans Want to Wipe Out All Programs


The Senate will vote on a two-week Continuing Resolution sometime in the next couple of days. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is, as expected, demagoguing this dispute madly. Moments ago, he told reporters, “The only message we get from Republicans is that they want to wipe out all programs that are so important to people, particularly vulnerable people.”

Sure, Harry. I’m sure that’s the Republican message verbatim.

Way to go, Nevada.
