A good rule of thumb for GOP leaders should be: If Dingy is praising you, you’re doing something horribly wrong.
Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) praised the upcoming House vote on a “clean” debt-ceiling package and suggested that House Republican leaders should next hold a similar vote on immigration reform.
“Defaulting on the (debt) obligation of this country would absolutely be wrong,” Reid told reporters, adding that he is encouraged by the decision of House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring to the floor a bill that would lift the country’s borrowing limit without extracting spending cuts.
“I commend Speaker Boehner for doing the right thing.” Reid said. “We hope this commonsense approach will continue throughout the year so we can actually get some things done.”
