David Broder has never been a big fan of Harry Reid.
And the Senate’s top Democrat let it be known on the floor Saturday that the feeling was mutual. Reid described the 80-year-old Washington Post columnist as “a man who has been retired for many years and writes a column once in a while.” Concentrating on his analysis of congressional health care legislation as costly and “budget-busting,” Reid said, is “not where we should be.”
“I hope he’s more accurate about the bill than he is about me,” Broder told POLITICO in response to Reid’s jab. “And I’m not retired.”
