Default Reid plays hardball in lame duck

Remember the 2014 lame duck session of the Senate after Republicans won the majority in the midterm elections? As we approach the lame duck session of Congress after the 2018 elections it is useful to remember outgoing Senate majority leader Harry Reid's reaction to losing.

Quote:
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid pulled out one of his most familiar threats during perhaps his last week as majority leader, pledging to keep the Senate in session through the weekend to get 23 of President Barack Obama’s nominations confirmed and pass bills extending billions in tax breaks and providing terrorism risk insurance to commercial buildings.
That's right, Democrat Harry Reid insisted on confirming Obama appointments and pursuing his agenda even if the Senate had to work overtime. No doubt Democrats will insist the Republican controlled lame duck Congress minimize their work hours in so-called deference to the voters.
