Harry Reid: GOP 'Making Love To Wall Street'

Posted: Updated:

Harry Reid has always had a way of turning a phrase. On Wednesday afternoon, he turned his talents to a description of the GOP's relationship with Wall Street, as the two parties continue to debate the way forward on reform.

"The Republicans are having difficulty determining how they're going to continue making love to Wall Street," Reid, the Senate majority leader, said in a press briefing.

Spokesman Jim Manley seconded Reid's analysis. "What can I say -- it's true," said Manley. "Republicans are making love to Wall Street, while the people on Main Street are getting screwed."

Republicans have yet to agree to allow votes on amendments to Wall Street reform going forward.
