Reid: Fiscal Cliff Failure Looks Likely Due To Boehner’s House ‘Dictatorship’



The Senate’s top Democrat said Thursday that he was pessimistic that Washington could avoid the impending fiscal cliff, accusing House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, of running the lower chamber as a “dictatorship.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he was unsure there was enough time between now and the end of the year to reach a deal to avoid the combination of spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect on Jan. 1. Reid said “the only viable escape route” was for the GOP-controlled House to give its approval to a Senate bill that would preserve existing tax rates on income under $250,000.

One Response to Reid: Fiscal Cliff Failure Looks Likely Due To Boehner’s House ‘Dictatorship’

    The Republican Party, GOP, and the wealthy 1% and 2% are the most Anti-Americans ever. Those wealthy people and politicians, like Boehner, who refuse to help the nation by paying a fare share of taxes are Anti-Americans. Romney who makes millions and who refuses to pay his fare share of US taxes makes him an Anti-American too, and how dare him trying to become president.
