Sen. Harry Reid moans: The ‘anarchists’ have taken over Congress
The context for his Thursday comments was the inability of Democrats to pass an energy efficiency measure — a failure he blamed on the tea party wing of the Republican Party, United Press International reported.
“We’re diverted totally from what this bill is about,” he said. “Why? Because the anarchists have taken over. They’ve taken over the House, and now they’ve taken over the Senate.”
Mr. Reid suggested that Republicans had tied up Senate time by tacking on several amendments to bills that demanded immediate attention, including one from Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to delay the individual mandate aspect of Obamacare by a year.
