Harry Reid Says Congressional Dems Won't Work with a Romney Administration

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has a response to Mitt Romney’s claim that he will “reach across the aisle” to work with Democrats in Congress, if he becomes president: Don’t bet on it.

“Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his 'severely conservative' agenda is laughable,” the Nevada Democrat said in a statement Friday morning. He went on to list a series of Republican-backed measures he said Democrats would never support.

The exchange reminded some of the 2010 comments of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who famously told the National Journal: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
