Washington, D.C. – Senator Ron Johnson made the following remarks today regarding Majority Leader Harry Reid’s actions on the Senate floor.
“Democrats are quickly losing the support of Americans across the nation. Today, responding to that voter backlash to his extreme agenda that is undermining our economy and health care, Majority Leader Harry Reid reversed Senate rules to distract public attention away from the failure of Obamacare and to make it easier to pack the federal courts with ideologically extreme judges who will rubber stamp the radical agenda of the Democratic Party. Senator Reid is a power-driven, cynical politician. He and his Democrat colleagues have proved today that they will say anything or do anything to keep an iron grip on power.”
