Reid Says Senate Will Oppose House Spending Bill Riders

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) “said the Senate will not accept the dozens of riders House Republicans added to their recently-passed spending bills — policy measures that do everything from defund Planned Parenthood to rescind the EPA’s authority to regulate pollution,” Talking Points Memo reports.

It’s the latest salvo in the battle over funding the government — and at some point House Republicans will have to decide whether they’ll allow these measures to be flushed down the toilet.

Reid made the comments on a conference call to reporters after Republicans rejected his call for extending current spending levels for 30 days while the two parties craft a longer-term bill to cut those funds.

    I agree with senator Reid for saying that the senate will not accept the riders for an already passed spending bill. Those republicans will do anything to get their way.
