Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Monday that Republicans are once again forcing the Senate to move at a snail’s pace to pass legislation that creates jobs, which he said shows their ongoing effort to hurt President Obama.
“It’s a shame that we have now wasted 30 hours post-cloture on this bill,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “It’s a bill that passed by 90 senators agreeing we should move for debate on this bill.
“Republicans have made a decision that they would rather do anything they can to stop jobs from being created, hoping it will help them with the elections come November,” Reid charged. “Too often in this Congress, the Republican strategy has been to kill job-creating bills in the hopes of harming the economy and hurting President Obama.”
