Reid Praises McCain For Helping To Block Gun Control Filibuster

Reid Praises McCain For Helping To Block Gun Control Filibuster

SENATOR HARRY REID: Mr. President, I appreciate everyone’s cooperation. I’m glad we were able to get cloture on this legislation. This legislation and this vote that just took place is of course important for our country, especially the people from Connecticut, who have lived through this tragedy. But it’s also important for this body, this Senate. There have been many things written in the last several months about how the Senate cannot operate. So I appreciate the members on the other side of the aisle, especially John mMcCain, on a Sunday show said, “I don’t think there should be a filibuster on this.” John McCain is a leader — has been a leader in this country for 31 years. People respect his opinion and I’m grateful to all Republicans who joined with us to allow this debate to go forward.
