Reid Spokesman: Continued Republican Obstruction Jeopardizes The Economic Security Of Our Middle Class

Washington, DCJim Manley, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today calling on Republicans to end their obstruction of Wall Street accountability legislation:
"The Senate has started to look like the movie ‘Groundhog Day’: day after day, Republicans take to the floor to do the bidding of Wall Street.  As we saw yesterday, the vast majority of Republicans clearly care more about making good on whatever bargain they struck in their secret, closed-door meetings with Wall Street executives than standing up for the seniors, small businesses and hard-working families whose economic security is jeopardized as long as business as usual continues on Wall Street.  It’s time for Republicans to end their obstruction and join us in bringing this Wall Street accountability bill up for an up or down vote.”
