Sen. McConnell: Harry Reid Acting Like A "Dictator"
SEN. MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY): "The way he's been operating is he doesn't let the minority have any amendments. He's already kind of turned the Senate Majority Leader's office into an office for a dictator and now he wants to get rid of, what we call, the motion to proceed. As a practical matter, he wants to make it easy to get on bills so he can employ a device that prevents us from offering any amendments at all.
"He's trying to centralize all the power in his office to keep the minority from offering amendments and run the place with an iron hand. Well, he's not LBJ. Those days are over. And we're not going to agree with that." (Sean Hannity show, 7/23/2012)
