Harry Reid: ‘I would like the debt ceiling to be for 20 years’

Posted By Jamie Weinstein On 5:28 PM 10/12/2013 

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid isn’t letting the government shutdown stop him from playing jester.

“How long would you like the [continuing resolution] to be and how long would you like the debt limit?” a reporter asked Reid at a press conference Saturday afternoon.

“I would like the debt ceiling to be for 20 years and I’d like the CR to be for 10 years,” Reid replied, apparently in jest. “A CR with our numbers, of course.”

Off to Reid’s side, Democrat New York Sen. Chuck Schumer could be seen and heard cackling as if Reid was Jerry Seinfeld.
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776
