Newly elected House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Sunday the Senate, rather than President Barack Obama, is to blame for gridlock in Washington.
"I believe you can work with anybody," the California Republican said on "Fox News Sunday," when asked about his approach to doing business with the president. "The challenge has been Harry Reid."
McCarthy charged that on the watch of Reid, the Senate majority leader, the upper chamber has "not moved anything."
"How do you even negotiate with the president if he doesn't have a bill on his desk?" McCarthy asked.
Meanwhile, House Republicans refuse to take up immigration reform, jobs legislation, food safety legislation, student loan improvements, gun safety legislation, net neutrality legislation , transportation bills, and more, all passed by the Senate.
But the problem is Harry Reid.
Sure. By the way, the person solely responsible for setting the schedule of votes in the House? Kevin McCarthy.
New tag as Cantor's out and McCarthy's in: Kevin "Aptly Named" McCarthy.
