Politics over country: Senate Dems delay stopgap funding/disaster bill

Ah, the games Beltway people play.

Harry Reid is stalling:

The U.S. Senate agreed to delay further action on a stopgap spending bill until Monday as Democrats and Republicans remained at odds over the measure, which would refill depleted disaster funds and ensure the government does not shut down in October.

“Everyone once in a while needs a little cooling off,” Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said. “We’ll come here Monday and more reasonable heads will prevail.”

What are Senate Dems doing instead of working this weekend?

This: Attending a fall beach retreat in South Carolina.

Like someone said: “There is nothing wrong with our country. There is something wrong with our politics.”

Pass the bill…LATER!

Commenter txvet2 writes: “So last night the Republican House was wrong to pass the bill, and today the Senate Democrats are wrong to block it?”

The massive spending and omnibus, stopgap tactics still suck eggs. I’m just taking the Dems to task for all their noxious, “country over politics” grandstanding.
