More on the Harry Reid broken record: talking to reporters, he said that if a budget is not passed, then "Americans will know that Democrats are reasonable" and Republicans are extreme. More of the usual talking points-the millions of federal workers who will not be paid, the lack of housing loans and the effect a shutdown would have on the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Again, Republicans would be willing to sell out the country "to stop women from getting tests and the health services they need" (shout out to Planned Parenthood), such as cancer screenings and mammograms.

Newsflash for Reid: this was your job last October, and all you did was talk.
