The American Conservative Union is calling Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s refusal to negotiate with the House to keep the federal government open “an outrage.” ACU Chairman Al Cardenas said it is clear from his actions Monday night that Reid had no interest in compromise and should take the responsibility for the shutdown.
“It is outrageous that Reid will not even consider postponing the individual mandate after President Obama has unilaterally decided to postpone the business mandate, income verification for subsidies and changed the law so members of Congress will be protected from the rules others will have to abide by,” Cardenas said. “Reid then compounded this arrogance by refusing the House offer to form a conference committee. As Reid well knows, a conference committee is how historically the Congress resolves its differences and should in this case.”
Cardenas said the American people know an unfair policy when they see it and called on the constituents of those Senators who voted to reject any reasonable compromise to let their Senator know they should negotiate a compromise with the House and end the shutdown.
