Reid not afraid to go forward without republican support

Just a few days after President Obama has been sworn in for his second term as president, Senator Reid (D-NV) has already began saying what he has planned for this new year. Reid (D-NV) wants to include republicans in making changes to the Senate rules but he is also letting republicans know that he and the Democratic caucus will go forward without them.

In a statement Reid said, “I’m going to continue to work with the Republican leader on a package of reforms that I hope we can agree on. If we can’t agree, we’re going to do something as a Democratic caucus alone.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) is who Reid (D-NV) is saying he is working with on making the Senate more efficient and limiting filibusters by the minority party. Mr. Reid knows he will not get all that he wants but hopes to find some common ground and improve the Senate so that it works.

“There must be some agreement reached or we’ll have to use other means to make the Senate more efficient,” Senator Reid (D-NV) said.

So it is up to the republicans in the senate to work with Reid (D-NV) or they will find themselves standing outside, looking in. For, Reid (D-NV) he sees no reason to halt his agenda due to republicans disagreeing and not cooperating in making the senate more efficient.

Reid (D-NV) believes he has enough votes for a majority passage of rule changes, still he holds on to hope that both sides can come to terms on an agreement on these rule changes.
