Reid Statement On House Republican Vote To Sue President Obama

Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement today after House Republicans voted to authorize a lawsuit against President Obama that wastes millions of tax payer dollars:

 “Today’s House vote is nothing more than a political stunt designed to distract from Republicans’ bankrupt agenda, which does nothing to create jobs or strengthen America’s middle class. Rather than acting to fix our broken immigration system, working to raise the minimum wage, or fighting to ensure a fair shot for all Americans, House Republicans are pursuing a meritless lawsuit at a cost of millions of dollars to American tax payers. Speaker Boehner should put aside this ill-fated venture, end stunts like Republicans’ calls for impeachment, and leave the chest-bumping and dirt kicking charade to baseball managers.”
