From Harry Reid (via The Hill):
“As far as I’m concerned, we have three major issues we have to do this year, if at all possible: No. 1 is healthcare; No 2 is energy, global warming; No. 3 is immigration reform,” Reid said.
“It’s going to happen this session, but I want it this year, if at all possible.”
Quite a tall order. Maybe they could fit in ending poverty and reforming education while they're at it.
Let's see what happens. Way back in May 2006, Reid announced he and Bill Frist had a workable deal in the Senate.
