From Senator Harry Reid -- March 24, 2011:
We should be trying to put Americans back to work, not trying to put public radio out of business.
Attacking labor unions….waging war on women’s rights…defunding NPR....repealing health care reform. The anti-worker, anti-woman, anti-Obama Republican agenda just proves that their priorities are seriously out of whack. How is any of this supposed to create jobs?
Senate Democrats are fighting back each and every day. Republicans are trying to force through their extreme agenda faster than you can say “Koch brothers.”
I’m not satisfied with playing defense. Democrats are ready to move this country forward by investing in our future –- rebuilding our infrastructure, improving our schools, and focusing on innovations that will create not just jobs, but entire industries.
And a year after President Obama signed health care reform, we’re unwilling to let Republicans put health insurance companies back between you and your doctor.
