Senator Harry Reid Promises To "Burn The Midnight Oil" Over Stimulus Debate; Adjourns Senate at 9:04 P.M.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid adjourned the United States Senate tonight at 9:04 P.M.
You Big Tease!
From Fox News:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor said that lawmakers will be "burning the midnight oil" Thursday night to complete the stimulus bill.Reid said he is hopeful that the Senate will achieve consensus and agree to a bill "we feel good about" in the next "12 hours." He argued that if there were reports that the Senate stimulus bill was failing, the stock market may crash Friday morning.

Reid told reporters Thursday he believes he has the 60 votes to pass the existing bill being debated, and made clear that the bipartisan group does not speak for the leadership or the president.
Maybe he decided to change his mind so they can have a more partisan, more democratic debate at 10:00 A.M. tomorrow when they reconvene to discuss the Congressional Radical Anti-American Pork (CRAAP) Act.

"They cannot hold the president of the United States hostage," he said. "And if they think they can rewrite this bill ... they've got another thing coming."

Maybe not. Can they just put us out of our misery and stop spewing their BIPARTISAN CRAAP!
