Dem Senator Rips Reid: "Combative" And Needs To "Stop With This Dead On Arrival" Language

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd: “Senator, let me ask you this. The basic premise seems to be Republicans say, ‘Okay, Democrats, we'll give you the unemployment extension, we'll give you the extension of the payroll tax holiday. We want Keystone.’ And I understand there's other things, but they want the Keystone pipeline. My guess is if you send them back a bill that got rid of that other stuff you didn't like but gave them Keystone, done, everybody goes home for Christmas.”

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO): “Well, let's hope we can negotiate something like that. I think if I were going to critique Harry Reid this morning I really wish we would stop with this dead on arrival, not going to go there and begin to have language like, ‘We're going to take a look at it and see if there's anything that we can agree on here and over the next couple of days try to come to an agreement.’ That's what's really going to happen, and I don't know why this place is so set on, you know, looking like we're combative all the time.”
