If one of the individual members of any of the 12 ask me a question, I will talk to them in private,” Reid told reporters Sept. 20. “But I’m not out here going to tell them what they should or shouldn’t do. They have an extremely difficult job. ... I’m not about to start negotiating with all of you as to what they should or shouldn’t do.”
