  • Pelosi, Reid: Cancel Memorial Day recess to deal with Zika, Supreme Court

    05/26/2016 12:23:44 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 35 replies
    House and Senate Democrats told Republican leaders Thursday to postpone a Memorial Day recess until their demands for Supreme Court nomination hearings and emergency spending to combat the Zika virus and other crises are met. From the opioids and heroin crisis to the lead-tainted water scandal in Flint, Mich., Congress faces a larger workload than ever but has opted to work less in a contentious election year, according to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. Congress is set to skip town Thursday for its Memorial Day break and will not return until the second week...
  • Harry Reid: Democrats Will Take Senate Majority

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid vows that a Democratic takeover of the Senate is fairly certain in the November elections. Discussing the race for president, Reid said he was confident that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton would win the party's nomination and then the general election. He stressed her intelligence and ability to grasp the issues on a wide variety of subjects. Reid harshly criticized Republican front-runner Donald Trump, saying that he "can't imagine how the establishment Republicans feel about somebody who’s about as far from anything that anyone believes in as Donald Trump. I can’t imagine this man being the...

    Senate Minority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) is reportedly hoping the federal government — specifically resident Barack Obama’s administration — will grab a stretch of land in Southern Nevada near the infamous Bundy Ranch, now that many in the Bundy group are in federal custody. The reason that the resident hasn’t had an opportunity to look at that very closely is that is where the Bundy family raised the hell that they did. Now most of them are in jail so maybe we can move forward on that,” Reid said, according to a Nevada political observer, Jon Ralston. ... Nevada...

    Senate Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reid  refuses to say why for months he has blocked a bipartisan bill designed to ensure inspectors general access all of the official documents they need to fight waste, fraud and abuse in the federal government. Three months ago, the Nevada senator blocked an attempt to pass Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley’s IG Empowerment Act with unanimous consent, which would make it crystal clear that the 1978 Inspector General Act gives presidentially appointed IGs authority to access all agency records for investigations and audits. Reid still refuses to change his position or explain his objections....

"Senate Republicans are not being fair to American women," Reid said in a floor speech. "It's our responsibility in the Senate to assure that American women have access to care. It's our obligation to protect our wives, our sisters, our daughters, our granddaughters -- protect them from the absurd policies of a Republican Party that's lost its moral compass."

    Harry Reid is set to “go nuclear.” He wants to end the filibuster as it applies to appellate court nominations — not by a two-thirds vote of the Senate, as Senate rules require, but by a simple majority. And given the short memories now in evidence, he may just succeed. On Monday, for the third time in less than a month, Senate Republicans filibustered an Obama nominee to the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. That’s the court that’s checked the president more than once, as when it said he couldn’t make “recess appointments” when the Senate wasn’t in...

But 15 minutes after the 11 a.m. “cloture” vote was supposed...

    New poll: Nevada voters unimpressed by Harry Reid’s cloutBy Holly Bailey Fri Aug 13, 3:20 pm ET Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has made his influence in Washington a central argument in his bid for re-election, insisting that "no one can do more" for Nevada than he can.

    Polling suggests most Republican candidates for statewide seats will be defeated in November. Two candidates, however, are in prime position to become the first Republicans in over a decade to serve in their respective seats. Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan and Harry Wilson are the GOP nominees for attorney general and comptroller, respectively.
