Reid: Congress Must Move Past Partisanship

Washington, DC—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today in response to a letter sent this morning by Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and 41 Republican Senators:

“I have always said that Democrats and Republicans need to work together to pass legislation that helps people in their daily lives.  After Republicans in the last Congress opted for a strategy of blocking progress, the American people clearly rejected those partisan tactics.  They have given us another opportunity to work together in the 111th Congress as the people of this country expect, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to come up with solutions that will get our country back on track.”
