Harry Reid is feeling his oats: he says “The games of stalling are over,” and threatens a cloture vote Monday afternoon if Republicans object to bringing the financial services reform bill to the floor. He seems to have figured out that the Republicans have no bargaining position; they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and he has no reason to help them get out.
Better, Reid and Schumer used the accurate word “lie” to refer to McConnell’s “bailout” claim, though they refrained from calling McConnell a liar. Good for them. When you’ve got ’em by the balls, squeeze. Keep this sort of thing up over the summer, and we may not have to worry about lack of energy among Democratic voters.
