Harry Reid can’t pass a budget for three years but he can cancel floor votes to allow RINO Scott Brown to debate Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren next week in the race for the Senate seat in Massachusetts.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced there would not be additional votes Thursday so Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) would not have an excuse to skip a debate with Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren.
Brown told reporters that he might skip a scheduled debate with his Democratic opponent if Senate votes ran late. A new University of Massachusetts Lowell/Boston Herald poll showed Brown with a four-point lead but four previous polls showed Warren leading.
Democrats said Republicans appeared to be slow-walking the votes to give Brown an excuse to miss the debate. Missing the debate would save Brown from having to answer difficult questions about Mitt Romney’s controversial remarks about the 47 percent of America he believes is mired in a sense of victimhood.
Brown might also have to answer questions about whether he supports the themes of Romney’s campaign. Romney is running well behind President Obama in Massachusetts.
