House Republicans are setting up the possibility of another government shutdown, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) warned Tuesday, if they renege on last year’s spending agreement.

Reid got in his opening shot before the GOP released its 2013 budget blueprint, which it’s expected to announce early next week.

“I’m really disappointed that they’re considering a budget violating the budget agreement that is now the law of this country,” Reid said during a news conference in the Capitol.
