Harry Reid knows that a Republican Senate would refuse to lift a finger to move our country forward.
The Democratic-controlled Senate on Thursday voted to invoke the so-called nuclear option out of frustration over Republicans who have been blocking President Barack Obama’s nominees.
Majority Leader Harry Reid insists his fellow Democrats will hold the majority in the U.S. Senate. He prodded the opposition, particularly Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, by suggesting the Republicans have been weakened by the most ideological conservatives in their party.
Reid noted that McConnell was tied in polls with a Democratic challenger even as he’d picked up a challenger in his GOP primary.
Democrats find a way to fracture the GOP hostility to basic governing.
