WASHINGTON (CNN) - In a dramatic twist played out on the floor of the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid conceded Thursday night he lacked the votes to bring up a nearly $1.1 trillion spending bill designed to fund the federal government for the rest of the current fiscal year.
Reid, D-Nevada, accused Republicans of withdrawing previously pledged support for the bill, and said he would work with the Senate Republican leader to draft a short-term spending measure that would keep the government running beyond Saturday, when the current spending authorization resolution expires.
republican strategy-– do nothing.
Way to go Dumbocrats!
And once again, Democrats blink.
WOW, this is a HUGE deal and CNN doesn't have this as the TOP STORY ! Shame on you, I always knew you guys were Liberals but this is really showing animosity to the AMERICAN PEOPLE, the people have spoken and Obama and his cronies do NOT LISTEN or CARE TO HEAR ! Neither does CNN ! Oh well, I'm back on FOX again !
Dont forget about tier 5 or we will forget about u.
I hope America is happy with their choice of the PorkBarrel GOP.
Tax breaks for the rich, special programs for their districts and states and meanwhile the american public suffers without a budget.
Nevada blessed us once again with this idiot. What were they thinking? He has zero respect for the voters and the country. Now we have six more years of Reid, but maybe after 2012, he'll have no power as Majority leader.
so what exactly does this mean
How stupid can Mr Reid and other Democrats really be? If the bill weren't packed with over 8 BILLION DOLLARS of EARMARKS, it would have passed. Democrats still don't get it! Stop spending taxpayer money on earmarks! Oh, but of course Obama promised he wouldn't sign any bills with earmarks... yeah, right... We all know the worth of those empty promises.
Laugh, snort,.....when the Republicans shut down the government.....oh wait, they don't even have control yet. Why am I wasting time writing here. Its time to go up to your representative and demand an explanation. If they don't comply, you keep sending pizzas to their homes all night and hire mariachi bands to play all day in front of their offices.
Like sand in an hour glass...
Republicans fighting for prosperity FAIL
