Reid: GOP Budget ‘No More Balanced’ Than Earthquakes in Nepal

Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) compared the Republican budget to the recent earthquake in Nepal in a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday.

Reid said, “the budget is just wrong. It’s also dishonest. It claims to be balanced. There is no balance in this budget. That’s a word. The budget is no more balanced than the earthquakes they’ve had in Nepal. It claims to reach balance, but the claim is laughable, based on gimmicks and massive cuts that are left unspecified.”
