Harry Reid: Biggest Compromise I’ve Ever Made

From the Daily Caller:

Reid: Government funding offer ‘biggest compromise I ever made in my career’

By Alexis Levinson | October 8, 2013

WASHINGTON — Despite refusing numerous Republican offers of compromise over the past several weeks, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid now claims that his insistence on that government spending remains the same represents “the biggest compromise” he has ever made.

Reid has repeatedly declared that the only way to end the government shutdown is for the House to pass the Senate’s funding bill, which funds the government at sequester levels for the next two months. Republicans have offered amendments to that bill, and want to resolve the differences between the two parties with a conference committee.

Reid has refused those proposals, and the Senate has each time sent back the same “clean” funding bill, which continues to run the government at sequester levels, to the House…

Reid says that by agreeing to funding the government at sequester levels, which he says is $70 billion less than he would like to use to fund the government, is a huge compromise in and of itself.

“It’s the biggest compromise I ever made in my career as a member of congress of some 31 years,” Reid said. “It may not sound like much to some people, but it was really big. And my caucus remembers what I asked them to do. So for someone to suggest to any of my Senators that we haven’t negotiated is simply unfair. And to say that we won’t negotiate is unfair!”

Reid has said Democrats are willing to negotiate on anything Republicans want, but only after they pass the Senate’s funding bill and re-open the government.

This just shows that words have no meaning for Harry Reid or the Democrat Party. Reid is claiming that his offer to keeping the CR spending at sequester levels is the biggest compromise has ever made in his entire 31 year career in politics.

And never mind that the sequester is ‘The Law Of The Land.’ And never mind that the sequester was Obama’s idea. And that Obama has vowed to veto any attempts to change it.

But how can anyone ever negotiate with people like this, even if they pretend to be willing to negotiate? It is like trying to reason with a sociopath. In fact, exactly like.

    Bull(cough) The biggest compromise Reid ever made was trading his credit-card thin soul for power.

    The biggest compromise Oil Can Harry Reid ever made was when he sold his soul to Beelzebub for a mess of pottage.

  4. Astravogel says:

    I think the biggest comprise he ever made was
    to put the Constitution second in his value plans.

  5. Mithrandir says:

    If the Republicans were smart (pause for laughter) they would attach every dream they wanted to the debt ceiling.

    Remove the Dept. of Education, affirmative action, Lautenberg amendment, everything. Every wish list proposal idea, BAD LAW—attach it to the MUST PASS debt ceiling bill.
