Reid: Bush Standing In Way Of Completing America’s Priorities

Washington, DCSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today in response to President Bush’s remarks this morning:

“Once again, the President refuses to acknowledge that the only thing standing in the way of addressing America’s priorities by the end of the year is the President himself.  If he is serious about completing the appropriations bills and other important measures, I encourage him to drop his veto threats and pick up the phone to persuade Senate Republicans to join us in funding critical needs.  President Bush said he wants to remain relevant as his term comes to a close; this is a chance to do so.”
