Reid: Passing Series of Small CRs ‘Just Another Wacky Idea’ from Tea Party

by Katrina Trinko

Senate majority leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor this afternoon to criticize Senator Ted Cruz’s proposal to pass several small continuing resolutions to fund specific programs during the government shutdown.

“It’s just another wacky idea from the tea-party-driven Republicans,” Reid scoffed. “You can tell that the tea-party Republicans still want to keep the government shut down.”

Later on in his floor remarks, Reid alluded to Cruz and Senator Mike Lee as “rabble-rousers.”
