As the clock ticks down towards a government shutdown you would think Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would be hard at work trying to stop it from happening. Unfortunately, Reid is AWOL and did not even bring back the United States Senate into session on Sunday after the House of Representatives softened its position and passed a bill that would DELAY Obamacare for a year on Saturday. The mainstream media is ignoring that fact about the House passed bill because it goes against their narrative that Republicans are refusing to compromise. The truth is that Obamacare needs at least a one-year delay because it’s clearly not ready to go.
Harry Reid is the one politician to blame for a shutdown. Reid wants the government to shutdown because he believes that Democrats will be in a better political position after a shutdown takes effect. I beg to differ, Democrat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin has already called for a one-year delay and I’ll bet endangered Democrat Senators Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu, Mark Begich, and Kay Hagan will be in a tight squeeze this week because they are siding with Harry Reid by choosing a position of non-compromise on Obamacare. When the clock strikes midnight tonight Harry Reid will be known as Shutdown Harry because as the House worked the Senate was fast asleep.
