Speaking about raising the debt ceiling, democratic Senate majority leader Harry Reid said:
“We can’t afford to play these political games and trigger a default crisis that will lead to a catastrophe.”
And he’s exactly right. So quit playing political games, Harry. Agree to the budget cuts and get on with it. As you say, “We can’t afford” it.
I really hate it when a blow-hard like Harry Reid does, in the same sentence, what he’s accusing others of doing. And he’ll never see the irony.
