Harry Reid pulls gun bill from consideration

April 18, 2013 at 2:55 pm

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) announced Thursday that the Senate will “take a pause” and return to consideration of gun legislation at a later date.

“Yesterday, President Obama said it was a shameful day for the Senate, and it probably was, I agree. But we should make no mistake:

This debate is not over, in fact this fight is just beginning,” Reid said on the Senate floor Thursday.

Reid’s decision came the day after President Obama’s comprehensive gun control effort suffered defeat in the Senate, with all the major proposals he backed failing to gain enough votes.

Reid said Thursday the Senate would “take a pause and freeze the background check bill where it is” and return to it at an undetermined date, likely with consideration of other proposed amendments.

“We’re going to come back to this bill,” Reid said.

Reid said the Senate would move next to consideration of an Internet taxation bill, a proposal that is believed to enjoy bipartisan support.

I don't get it. Reid himself voted AGAINST the bill, not for it. Now he's taking Obama's side???

Procedure, R1, Reid had to vote against it in order to re-introduce it some day. He and he alone gets a pass for his vote.

Girls, he fucked up getting rid of the filibuster just so this could not get thru. Now batting his eyes like little bo peep. He wants to hang on to his B grade from the NRA.

Can someone please explain in simple terms what this means (I'm cute but kind of dumb).

I mentioned that elsewhere, R4, and people ran circles to make excuses for Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats and President Obama.
