Oh, joy. Senator Harry Reid (D-Searchlight) is catching plenty of attention over what he told PBS' Judy Woodruff yesterday about Hillary Clinton running for President in 2016. Of course, the media are focusing on this.
However, there's far more in Senator Reid's interview. Funny enough, he addressed what we've been discussing all week here. Go ahead and look below.
Although Senator Reid mentioned last week's filibuster breakthrough, he also acknowledged the record low approval of Congress. And he pointed out why Congress is now so unpopular. When so much time is wasted on abortion bans, health care deform, austerity fetishes, and ideological insani-TEA, this is what follows.
Right now, most Americans are looking for solutions. They're looking for job creation. And they're looking for a better future for our next generation. What is Congress doing to further this? Can Congress accomplish anything when all the G-O-TEA wants is more obstruction?
There's a reason why Congress is so unpopular now. And there's a reason why Hillary Clinton is doing well in the (extremely) early 2016 polls. Senator Reid clearly notices these. Are Republican Congresscritters?
