Reid Statement On Recess Appointments

Washington, DCNevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today in reaction to President Obama’s announcement of 15 recess appointments to his administration:

“Nominees under President Obama have fared worse than others in recent memory. Regrettably, Senate Republicans have dedicated themselves to a failed strategy to cripple President Obama’s economic initiatives by stalling key Administration nominees at every turn. With the recess appointments of these highly-qualified individuals, President Obama has shown that he is serious about getting the right team in place to create jobs and protect the American workforce, and I support his decision.”
