Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid should do the job he was elected to do and quit lecturing Republicans, says former Florida GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough.
"Harry Reid should really be quiet and go back and do the job that he was hired to do, and, at least, pass one appropriation bill. And then come out lecturing us," Scarborough, the host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," said on his program Tuesday.
"I hear Harry Reid lecturing [House Speaker] John Boehner every day about getting things done. And Harry Reid's Senate that Harry Reid runs, first of all, went four or five years without passing a budget. And this year, with a Democratic president and Democratic chairman and chairwomen, has passed a grand total of zero appropriation bills," Scarborough said...
In an interview with Esquire magazine on Monday, Reid called the Republican strategy of tying efforts to kill Obamacare to a stopgap spending bill to keep government running "insanity." The Democratic leader also told USA Today Monday that "never in the history of this country has there been a time when members of Congress say, 'Do what I want or I'm not going to fund the government.'"
Scarborough, who served in Congress from 1995 to 2001, took issue with what he called the Senate's inability to pass a budget in the past four years.

Heh, Morning Joe remains a Partisan Media Shill.
Did he shake off the pod that took over his body?
Which job? The one the people of Nevada hired him to do or the one the Vegas mob hired him to do?
Joey should go home and take care of his kids, then shut up
I am so glad this guy is just a host on MSNBC instead of a Republican Congressman. No one sees him, and if people would stop relaying what he says on his show no one will ever hear him either.
Harry Red is doing his job for one purpose — to serve obama.
The RINO roars, eh? Did he get permission from MIKA, zbignew and the reverend Al?
Hey. If little joe is saying this, it must be cool to be a conservative agin.
I wonder what is making him make a right turn??? Hmmmmmm....
Wonder if it is that boogaboo known as “public opinion”????
This from the same man who said Ted Cruz should sit down and shut up?
Go eff yourself, Scab-0
The one the people of Nevada hired him to do”””
ONLY the voters in Clark County—Northern Nevada hates Harry.
Clark County is where ACORN did plenty of vote fraud the past few elections, also. He has them in his pocket.
I fear we will only get rid of him when he croaks.
I know. It was really just a setup for the second part of the question.
Reid and Obama don’t get the message!
Bingo......Dirty Harry IS doing the job he was hired for....and that job
is most definitely not serving the voters.
