Democratic Senate Majority Leader Attacks House Speaker John Boehner on Senate Floor; Says Boehner is Ruling the House with “a Dictatorship of the Speaker” – Video 12/27/12
Not exactly the words of a man seeking to make a deal.
Here is video of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blasting GOP House Speaker John Boehner for ruling the House with a “Dictatorship of the Speaker.” He attacked Boehner for “caring more about his Speakership” than the good of the nation.
Reid said time is running out for a deal that would avert the nation going over the so-called “Fiscal Cliff” on January 1, 2013. Reid said the House should pass the Senate’s “Middle-Class Tax Cut” extension. Of course, he failed to mention that the House sent the Senate an extension of the tax cuts on Middle-Class families months ago – which the Senate would not act on.
It’s clear that Obama and the Democrats are fine with the “Fiscal Cliff” because it will give them everything they want – tax increases, Military Defense Cuts, and a chance to blame it all on the GOP.
