Harry Reid: A Great Majority Leader

"A dozen Democrats — and Independent Joe Lieberman — joined all 40 Senate Republicans to block a permanent repeal of the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) payment formula for doctors, as there was no consensus over how to pay the $247 billion 10-year price tag. Sen. Maj. Ldr. Harry Reid wanted the “doc fix” as a payoff to keep the American Medical Association on board for ObamaCare — so naturally, he blamed the AMA for failing to deliver 27 GOP votes. The AMA was not amused."

Senator Reid, you have SIXTY votes in the Senate to work with but you can't move any important legislation? And then you blame the Senate Republicans and Doctors for your failure to lead? It's a disgraceful performance.
