When a scarred and bandaged Minority Leader Harry Reid appeared on the Senate floor for his first speech of the year, the chamber’s new majority leader and Reid’s own top deputy slipped and briefly called him the “majority leader.” Aside from his appearance, Reid was his old self, blasting Republicans over the Keystone XL pipeline legislation that occupied the chamber’s first month, as well as the GOP-led effort to stop funding for President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration as part of the current Homeland Security spending debate. “We should pass a Homeland Security bill with no strings attached to it. That’s where we’re going to wind up,” Reid said.
