Harry Reid Praises Boehner For Bashing Conservative Orgs; Nancy Pelosi Happy with Boehner
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) praised House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) for snapping at conservative outside groups for pushing lawmakers to oppose a two-year bipartisan budget deal introduced by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-WA).
"I think it was a breath of fresh air as far as I'm concerned," Reid said at a press conference where he was flanked by Sens. Dick Durbin (IL), Charles Schumer (NY), and Murray, the other members of the Senate Democratic leadership.
A day earlier, Boehner slammed the groups (which include Club for Growth, FreedomWorks, and Heritage Action) at a press conference for quickly denouncing the budget framework.
(Rep. Nancy) Pelosi, who served as speaker before Boehner. "He has done the right thing at long last."
