Washington, D.C. – Senator Ron Johnson (WI) released the following statement regarding Majority Leader Reid’s comments on the Senate floor today:
“Once again, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wasted the time of every taxpayer in America with an extremely partisan and silly attack on Congressman Ryan from the Senate floor. If Democrat Senator Reid spent even a portion of his time on the people’s business rather than posing as a political attack dog for the Obama administration, the Senate might actually be able to pass a budget, pass appropriation bills, and begin to get serious about addressing our unsustainable debt and deficits. Apparently, Harry Reid has no problem turning the U.S. Senate into a ‘do nothing,’ totally irrelevant body. But like most Americans, I do."
