Harry Reid: "...the anarchists have taken over,”Submitted by barracuda_trader on Thu, 09/12/2013 - 12:47
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Thursday said “anarchists” have taken over Congress.
Reid (D-Nev.) said Tea Party Republicans are preventing progress on an energy efficiency bill by offering amendments on ObamaCare and other unrelated issues.
“We’re diverted totally from what this bill is about. Why? Because the anarchists have taken over,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “They’ve taken over the House and now they’ve taken over the Senate.
“People who don’t believe in government — and that’s what the Tea Party is all about — are winning, and that’s a shame.”
On Wednesday, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) said he would prevent votes on lawmakers' amendments to the energy bill until he's assured he'll get a vote on his amendment, which would require some congressional and executive branch staff to enroll in the ObamaCare health exchanges.
“It’s defund ObamaCare, and I guess as the fiscal year comes to and end that’s what it’s all about,” Reid said.
