The Republican National Committee says that the Senate Democrats all-nighter on the Senate floor Monday evening until 9 AM Tuesday was not about principle. The RNC claims Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats rented out the Senate floor to the environmental cause of one of their biggest left-wing billionaire donors.
RNC spokesman Raffi Williams points to how liberal billionaire Tom Steyera major Democratic Party donorsupports environmental causes.
If you thought living in the Ritz-Carlton was expensive, its peanuts compared to the $100 million contribution from California billionaire Tom Steyer which is the going rate to rent Harry Reids Senate, Williams said in a Tuesday statement. Last nights talk-a-thon was nothing more than payback for Steyers donations to the Democrat Party. Either Mr. Reid or the Democrat Party needs to reimburse taxpayers for their campaign stunt.

Censure Heid. He cannot rent out the senate. The money received belongs to the US Treasury.
Ooops name is Reid
Not quite accurate. The 100M was a 50 M donation if the Dems could raise 50 M. The stundt was simply an effort to get the first 50M rolling in so they could say, “See”. Only then would the next 50M be donated for their campaigns.
Okay. But, $24 million is still greater than $50 million. LOL!
Wondered how Reid obtained his 10 million guess we know now.
The RNC. Ten years late to the party...again.
The ‘envirowankers’all got together for one big, public, group-wank!
Harry Reid cannot be bought — just rented.
