DC Mayor crashes Harry Reid Press Conference!


"An unusual confrontation took place on the U.S. Capitol steps Wednesday when District Mayor Vincent C. Gray crashed a news conference held by Senate Democrats and asked Majority Leader Harry Reid to exempt the city from the ongoing shutdown.

“Sir, we are not a department of the government,” Gray told Reid moments after the mayor concluded his own press event about 50 yards from where Reid held one. “We’re simply trying to be able to spend our own money.”

"“I’m on your side, don’t screw it up, okay? Don’t screw it up,” Reid (Nev.) told his fellow Democrat."

WHAT DOES “I’m on your side, don’t screw it up, okay? Don’t screw it up,” MEAN?

"Don't screw it up dude!" - Harry Reid.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

Only Property Owners in DC are Responsible for National Debt

All of the District of Columbia is the incorporated territory of The Federal Government Corporation. That's the extent of their corporate influence.

The US Federal Government Can Go Bankrupt Completely and Not Infect the Rest of the Country Because it's a Corporation

Under continuing states of emergency..

....the area was LEGALLY (rightly or wrongly, for better or worse, but in fact LEGALLY) extended over the whole of the US under emergency powers.


So, while what you are saying is SUPPOSED TO BE correct, it is, IN FACT, not currently correct. You have made the "is/supposed to be" logical error.

Read the Constitution mr. mayor

Washington DC and the lands given to the federal government by the states are the only places the government can totally control. They have almost zero control of the states!!!!

Evil Liberals

Maybe DC mayor should authorize his law enforcement

personnel and deputize citizens to round up and charge federal government traitors for their interference with his own local government's operation.

Requesting / asking / begging the federal parasites is disheartening to see.... Just more political antics and theater for TV.

What would the Founders do?

Oh the irony
