    Give 'em Hell, Harry!

    In a speech Thursday morning, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tore into House Speaker John Boehner for refusing to call the House of Representatives back into session to vote on Senate-passed legislation extending tax cuts on all income below $250,000.

    "Speaker Boehner should call members of the House back to Washington today," Reid said. "He shouldn't have let them go, in fact. They are not here. They are not here." Reid accused Boehner of putting his own political ambition ahead of the country's welfare, seeking to preserve his speakership rather than risk losing support from Republicans by allowing a vote on the senate's legislation.

    "I can't imagine their consciences," Reid said. "They're out, wherever they are around the country, and we're here trying to get something done. They are not in Washington, D.C. The House of Representatives is not here."
