You think you have the votes, Reid? Fine.

Then just go ahead and pass that debt bill of yours, over our objection.


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters Thursday that he has enough votes to pass a more than $900 billion stimulus bill out of the Senate.

Reid said he believes at least two Republicans of “good will” would support the Democratic-crafted package.

Note, by the way, that this is as-is: the Democrats aren’t inclined to give the moderates even the 200 billion that they’re trying to cut. But no matter: if Reid has the support to pass his party’s debt bill, then he does, and it’s long past time for the Democrats to take ownership of this.

So go ahead, already. Pass your bill.

Note: “your.”
