Harry Reid: Abortion Funding Is Higher Priority Than Keeping Government Running and Paying the Troops

Well there was reportedly a deal at one time anyway…
But Harry Reid decided to funding abortions was a higher priority than keeping government running and paying the troops at war.
The National Journal reported, via HotAir:

“We agreed on a number last night,” Reid told reporters in the Senate Press Gallery. He said he is “really upset that this government is going to shut down” because of GOP efforts to limit access to abortion.

A spokesman for Boehner has challenged Reid’s account, saying that continuing differences over spending cuts, not the abortion rider, remain the problem.

By the way… Did the Obama family leave on vacation yet?
