Democrats Retreat to Beef Up Agenda

Majority Leader Harry Reid and other Senate Democrats will work on their agenda during this week’s retreat.

Republicans, meanwhile, poked fun Tuesday at the Democrats’ choice of location. The National Republican Senatorial Committee issued a release highlighting the fact that the retreat was being held at the posh resort instead of a location in Washington, D.C.

Sen. Chuck Grassley also mocked their light agenda.

“Do they have a jobs agenda?” the Iowa Republican asked. “Tell me what it is.”

“They’re going to come back from Charlottesville and they’ll have a ‘jobs agenda’ because they know that’s what people want. But they’ll all come back a little more fiscally conservative,” he predicted.
