Powerline: "Over to you, Harry."
Last night, Harry Reid had some fun tweaking the House of Representatives: "...they're having trouble conducting [business]." Hardy-har-har. This coming from the leader of the Senate which hasn't passed a budget in over 800 days. There was nothing whatsoever holding the Senate back from passing their own debt reduction plan except - like the President - that would mean taking a principled, if unpopular, stand.
I have to agree with Powerline and Instapundit readers: there's no point for the House to negotiate with itself. That's now how Congress is supposed to work. Let Harry Reid pass his own plan through the Senate and then both sides bring their competing plans to conference.
