Top Dem Senators Blast GOP For Putting ‘Gun to Our Head’
The Democrats shelved their distaste for violent terms in political discourse yet again Monday night, repeatedly blasting Republicans for putting a “gun to our head” by not sending a clean continuing resolution to the Senate.
Senate majority leader Harry Reid: ”We will not go to conference with a gun to our head.”
Senator Chuck Schumer (N.Y.): “We realize we have to do that with both houses, but not with a gun to everybody’s head.”
Senator Patty Murray (Wash.): “We’re not going to do it with a gun to our head that says we’re shutting government down.”
