Harry Reid’s Constitutional Duty: Spending Money

The Founders couldn’t be more proud:

In a jab at Angle, who thinks the federal government should be dramatically scaled back and fulfill only those duties expressly enumerated in the Constitution, Reid argued it is his “constitutional duty” to spend federal money.

“Part of my constitutional duty is to do congressionally directed spending,” he said, pulling out a copy of the Constitution given to him by the late U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd. “I am vigorous in going forward with congressionally directed spending. I fight for it.”

Good idea heading into a tight election, Harry — tell everybody how much you not only love spending their money like crazy, but how you’re constitutionally bound to do nothing less. That’ll turn things around!

Hopefully the people of Nevada do their constitutional duty and get Reid out of the Senate.
