RUSH: Harry Reid just went to the microphones and now that the deal is done, now that the Republicans have caved, for the next couple of hours it’s gonna be like this.
REID: I thank the Republican leader for his diligent efforts to reach this important agreement. The Republican leader’s cooperation was essential to reach an accord that could pass both chambers of Congress and also be signed by President Obama. This is not a time for pointing fingers of blame. This is a time of reconciliation. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of this great Capitol to pass this remarkable agreement.
RUSH: Absolutely. Yeah. What that is, just to reiterate, he just tried to hammer the last nail into Mitch McConnell’s reelection coffin in 2014 in Kentucky. He just credited Mitch McConnell for this. He said it wouldn’t have happened without Mitch McConnell, “My Republican leader colleague.” Harry Reid knows how much you hate this. He knows how much we hate this. That’s why he’s happy. Obama’s happy. Now, Harry Reid might go two hours today. Obama won’t be able to help himself. They’re throwing parties at the White House.
