Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has a word for conservative House Republicans.
At his weekly press availability, Reid was asked how House Speaker John Boehner will handle immigration reform – specifically, what Senate Republican leaders voting against it will mean for future action in the GOP-controlled House.
“You’re asking me?” Reid asked. “The speaker has said, within a period of a little over 24 hours, we’re going to pass an immigration bill. We’re going to have Democratic votes to do it. As soon as his crazies heard that, I guess they talked to him and he – the next day he came back and he said, ‘I will only pass it if I have a majority of the majority.’”
Reid was referring to Boehner’s insistence that he will only bring an immigration bill to the floor if a majority of House Republicans support it.
