It appears that Harry Reid wishes to play the role of obtructionist if Romeny is elected. Shocking!!
Vote Libertarian. It is the only way to overcome a broken antiquated system of poo.
That link didn't work for me but I found her column at
Reid's comment sounded like more of a prediction than a vow. It cites specific conservative intentions that he says have not and will not get anywhere. Reid is as much as saying Romney should moderate his agenda away from "severely conservative" (which I think he will if elected) if he wants cooperation. Big surprise. Nothing wrong with that.
"Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his 'severely conservative' agenda is laughable," said Reid, paraphrasing Romney's assertion during the earlier part of the campaign that he was a severe conservative.
"In the past few months, we have voted down many of the major policies that Mitt Romney has run on, from the Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it, to the Blunt Amendment to deny women access to contraception, to more tax giveaways for millionaires and billionaires, to a draconian spending plan that would gut critical services for seniors and the most vulnerable Americans," Reid said.
edit: Her headline, "Harry Reid: If Romney Wins, I'm Not Working With Him" is misleading, but often, columnists don't write their headlines, the editor does.
