Just in case you were at all curious about what the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives had to say on today’s budgetary goings-on, here you go. She was apparently plenty eager to get a deal done throughout, but at the end of day was ready to defer to the true “master at work.”
I don’t even know what to say, ya’ll.
This was an opportunity cost of time. We could have been talking about jobs, farm bill, immigration, any number of issues that need to be addressed, and I commend the Speaker for coming around for bringing it to the floor. I salute — I never saw anything like what Harry Reid did. To watch him, was to watch a master at work. He was superb, intellectually, politically astute, and just the sheer stamina of it all. And it was a sign of the respect that his members have for him.
