Ahead of a House vote on a “clean” funding measure for the Department of Homeland Security, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday he “hoped” the recent stalemate over DHS funding would not set the tone for other legislative agenda items this year, while also placing blame for the impasse on conservative House Republicans.ü ü”Senator [Richard J.] Durbin and I came to the House together. When we came there, there wasn’t any of this vote a majority of a majority. You found out how you get 218 votes. That’s where we should be in the House of Representatives,” Reid said. “They have a small, vocal, right-wing, somewhat strange minority they have over there [and it] shouldn’t be running the House of Representatives.”
