Dem lawmaker: ‘Nobody I know’ has seen Reid plan

A House Democrat indicated Wednesday that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) might not have Democrat votes locked down for his deficit proposal. “I’m not going to commit to something that nobody I know has seen and had a chance to analyze,” said Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.). “I want to see it.”

 

·         But Blumenauer said that few Democrats have had a chance to sign onto Reid’s alternative measure. “I had dinner with one of my friends who is a senator last night, who was saying they’re really interested in seeing the details,” he said on CSPAN’s “Washington Journal” program. “They haven’t seen the details yet.”
