Looks like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying harder than Reid is;
The Obama campaign sent out an email today asking supporters to urge Congress to at least vote on the president’s jobs bill almost immediately after Democratic majority leader Harry Reid blocked a vote on the bill in the Senate.
On the Senate floor today, Republican leader Mitch McConnell asked for unanimous consent to proceed on voting on the bill. Reid, who has struggled to find enough votes for the bill in the Democratic caucus, objected to the motion and killed the opportunity for a vote.
Oops! Maybe someone could forward the video below to Reid’s office? Seems Obama’s problem is with Democrats rather than Republicans.
