Harry Reid Calls For Fiscal Discipline

Harry Reid

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) called on Democrats to embrace fiscal discipline once again, in a speech on the Senate floor today.

“[It’s] time we return to the type of fiscal discipline that democrats brought to Washington in the 90′s when Democrats in the Congress and White House balanced the budget and used the surplus to do what Mr. President? To pay down the debt,” he said.

Reid’s remarks come as Democrats and Republicans face off over lowering the deficit and raising the debt ceiling.
