... Dont screw it up, Reid told [D.C. Mayor] Gray in front of the cameras, reminding him that Democrats want the government open and are on his side. Multiple local reporters asked Reid what he meant by that, but the majority leader was ushered away by his security detail and staff. Gray then got into a verbal exchange with Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., who took a disapproving tone with the mayor...
Virginia Democrats Tim Kaine and Mark Warner had to speak over the yelling protesters, whom Capitol police eventually tried to silence.

Minibill strategy is working.
Good thing he didn’t get between a TV camera and Schmucky Schumer...good way to get run over.
Yes! I don't know who dreamed it up, but it's brilliant. Newt, was it you?
It puts the responsibility exactly where it belongs, on the heads of Obama and Harry Reid.
In any case, Bambi and the Dems are so arrogant they honestly probably didn't even know that Holmes (not my favorite person) and Gray (don't know anything about him) weren't perfectly happy to be sacrificed on the altar of Obama.
This needs to go viral.
I’m thoroughly disappointed that Issa feels the need to stoop to the Democrats level by joining them in this stupid BS stunt (Free DC rally).....Pfffffft
How dare Issa embarass your hero Harry Reid huh?
Yeah, we all hate that...

When forced into a corner, they had to be resourceful and creative.
One other talking point that still isn't getting enough airplay:
“Obama gave big business a get-out-of-Obamacare-free-pass for one year and ignored working families. These are hard times and many families are struggling right now. We are only asking for fairness for the American people and Obama refuses to be reasonable.”
True. It probably was an accident, but at least it shows that they’re listening to their constituents, something virtually unheard of nowadays.
I agree, that’s a great talking point.
“needs to go viral.”
What I thought. Hate to post articles but this one was of exceptional value.
I see POLITICO has a sanitized version out already LOL!
I must have missed something then...what was the Free DC Rally about, if not to end the shut down of the govt?
Trust me, Harry Reid is NO hero. He’s a traitor.
Ok...I misunderstood what the rally was for, I stand corrected.
Stand Up! for Democracy in DC Coalition (Free DC) Applauds Mayor Grays Defiance of Federal Shutdown, Says Impasse Illustrates Necessity of Statehood.
The Stand Up! for Democracy in DC Coalition (Free DC) today applauded Mayor Grays determination to keep the District government running, even if the federal government closes due to a budget impasse, by declaring all DC employees to be essential.
Free DC rally is to get the senate democrats and obama to release the tax revenue collected by the city of Dc for the use of the city of DC.
It is NOT federal money! Through a quirk in the laws Congress must approve it’s release.
The republican led house passed a bill at the beginning of the shut down releasing the money.
I have been severely disappointed in Issa.
He investigates but never get anything done, and now standing with Eleanor Holmes Norton a total racist, and Mayor Grey, a crook from the word go, for DC Statehood.?????
Well Mr. Issa you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas.
Knew youd figure it out.
Great Whos your Daddy Harry Reid? pic of Issa, Norton and the Mayor.
Congressional investigations are always slow as molassas and frustrating. I do agree Issa could have done better with them nonetheless.
You probably already have figured out the rally wasn’t about statehood or the like but getting the Democrat Senators to let DC spend it’s own tax money to pay it’s employees.
James Madison thought of it... it's just standard Constitutional governance.
DC gets a large portion of it’s money from a federal payment. If they don’t get that payment, they don’t have much money to use.
Well, the Senate Democrats are blocking DC from using DC’s own money - from taxes, parking tickets, etc- to pay their employees.
Personally I’d like to see DC emptied.
Meanwhile it’s nice to watch some good old “Let’s you and him fight” politics working for us.
