Senate Dem leaders reject Sen. Collins’s offer to end budget impasse
Democratic leaders in the Senate are rejecting an offer by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to end the budget impasse, arguing it asks for too much in return for too little, aides and senators tell POLITICO.
Although many are blaming the Republicans, Harry Reid deserves just as much to blame. He was upstaged by Biden last December when Reid refused to negotiate. This time around Reid has an understanding with Obama that this time around Reid is in charge. Reid in charge is a scary proposition.
