Reid to Boehner: 'Why Are You Afraid?'
(WASHINGTON) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that House Speaker John Boehner was “mistaken” when he said there aren’t enough votes in the House to pass a clean continuing resolution. “Why are you afraid? Are you afraid this measure will pass, the government will reopen and Americans will realize you took the country hostage for no apparent reason? Why is the speaker opposed to these reasonable solutions?” Reid said on the Senate floor Monday.
