Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is now ashamed of his partisan political remarks against raising the debt ceiling during the Bush years. It's funny how having "your guy" in the White House changes everything.
(ABC News) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today told ABC News that he feels “embarrassed” that four years ago he argued against raising the country’s debt limit.
“Why is it right to increase our nation’s dependence on foreign creditors?” Reid said on March 16, 2006. “Democrats won’t be making an argument to support this legalization, which will weaken our country.”
In an interview today on ABC’s “Top Line” with Jonathan Karl and Amy Walter, Reid said those comments were a mistake.
