Reid Not Surprised By Boehner's Debt Ceiling Vote Fail Given Their Recent Performance


Reid said Boehner hasn't been in communication about the House's legislative outlook.

"I haven't been helping them to arrange their schedule," Reid said. "We have a plan. We know what we're gonna do. We'll wait and see what they're gonna do."

Asked by another reporter if the failure of the House vote made it more likely Democrats will get what they want out of the debt ceiling deal.

"I think the most likely thing is they're having a lot of trouble getting what they want done," Reid said. "I guess it's a moving vehicle, so we'll see."
