Reid Spokesman: Serious Proposal Sitting On Reid’s Desk – To Forge Bipartisan Agreement, Republicans Should Come Back To The Table

Washington, D.C.Jon Summers, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today regarding stalled budget negotiations, which have been derailed by Republican infighting although Democrats have brought two proposals to cut spending to the table:

“Sitting on Senator Reid’s desk right now is a serious proposal that cuts $70 billion in government spending while protecting America’s economic recovery. If Republicans are truly interested in forging a bipartisan agreement that avoids a government shutdown, they should come back to the negotiating table and look at what’s in the proposal.”
