A recent ABC News article noted that Reid is trying to delay part of the health care debate this weekend. Unsurprisingly, Senator Reid has a fundraiser to attend this very weekend. The ABC article noted that "It turns out Reid has a 1,000 plus per plate fundraiser scheduled for Saturday in New Orleans, according to one local paper..." This is the same Harry Reid who has been pushing strongly for a reform bill to be debated and passed quickly in the United States Senate. Now, Mr. Reid wants to take a break from such a debate.
It is quite revealing about Reid's priorities when he wants to push through health care reform quickly while wanting to delay part of that very debate, a delay that would make attendence at a political fundraiser that much easier.
