Is the Senate Majority Leader getting feisty? So it would seem when, on the senate floor the Nevada Democrat accused the GOP of rooting for economic failure in the hopes that it would boost them at the ballot box.
“If there were ever an example of such a tremendous waste of the Senate’s time and the indication that the Republicans don’t care anything about the American people,” Reid said Monday in his speech. “I guess their goal is, ‘Let’s make things as bad as we can and hopefully the American people won’t see through it and maybe we’ll get somebody elected to replace President Obama.’ What other reason could there be?”
The sentiment is very familiar to many, who remember Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders accusing the GOP of the same thing prior to the 2010 election. And, it turned out, he was right.
