Harry Reid On ABC’s ‘This Week’
STEPHANOPOULOS: But you’ve heard the Republicans across the board here. They’re saying they’re done with revenues for 2013.
REID: George, the American people are on our side. The American people don’t believe in these austere things. We believe that the rich should contribute. We believe we should fill those tax loopholes, get rid of them, I should say. And that’s where we need to go.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But that’s the debate that’s been had, as you know, for the last several months, the last couple of years. It doesn’t appear that that’s going to get solved in the next month, so the sequester is going to hit.
REID: George, that’s what they said two days, three days a week away from the fiscal cliff, “No revenue.” Well, we got about $700 billion in revenue. There’s still more that we can do.
