Image result for dirty harry reidSenate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) says there “are lots of problems” with a Republican proposal to fund the government beyond the end of the month, dampening hopes a deal might be reached this week.

Reid told reporters Wednesday that Republican and Democratic leaders are at loggerheads over the stopgap funding measure, which includes tens of millions of dollars to fight the Zika virus.

Republicans don’t want any of the $80 million slated for Puerto Rico's Zika response to go to Planned Parenthood clinics.

“The CR is not done; it’s a work in progress,” Reid said, referring to the funding continuing resolution. “Zika funding is not done; it’s a work in progress.”

Asked whether the partisan dispute over granting Planned Parenthood access to federal funds remains a sticking point, Reid said, “Planned Parenthood is not gone.”

Senators had expected to vote Wednesday to begin floor debate on the stopgap, but now that’s unlikely. 

Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (Texas) said the Water Resources Development Act, which was supposed to pass Wednesday, now may not received a final vote until Thursday. He said the vote to begin debating the stopgap will happen after the water bill moves off the floor.

burn it all down and rebuild upon the Constitution and enforce the law ...this horrible night mare must end

Your so right...A night mare!!!!

Agreed.

But Planned Parenthood needs all that money so they can abort all the babies that may have been exposed to the Zika virus!!!!!!!!!!

They have yet to trim the fat off and need lessons from citizens who are trying to live on "nothing", while their retirement is being sent to illegals and our Islamic enemies!

Barry Wind

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
