Top Senate Democrat faults GOP extremists on debt
On Monday July 25, 2011, 3:21 pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says a debt limit standoff between Democrats and the Republican-led House is being driven by GOP extremists.
At a news conference, the Nevada Democrat said Republicans are more interested in trying to embarrass President Barack Obama than in doing what's right for the country. He says the GOP is being led by the "radical right wing," and says such extremists should not be allowed to determine how the battle is resolved.
Reid has proposed extending the government's tapped-out borrowing authority until 2013. Republicans want to raise that ceiling for only a few months and force another vote on the volatile issue during the 2012 political campaigns. Both parties would also cut spending.

...and keep in mind that these dimwit DIMs haven’t produced a budget for years (which is against the law). Sheesh!
What a masterful display of propaganda. AP uses the phrase “GOP extremists” — without the quote marks — three times in the headline, subheader and first sentence. What’s the point of the article again? lol. Cute how it ends with Reid being open to compromise if the GOP would just “propose something.” How many GOP plans have been floated, like six or seven in the past two weeks? lol.
I can't believe he thinks that most of us are this stupid. He said, 98% of the people don't make more than $250,000 a year. So we are going to tax the millionaires and billionaires more. My question is, since when is someone making over $250,000 a year is a millionaire or billionaire?
So...did reid actually use the word “extremist” or is that just the AP?
