Make them talk Harry - Part Two

The Republicans successfully blocked a vote on the small business loan bill today because they didn't get their amendment to extend the tax breaks. And here's Harry Reid playing courtier to them.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said he would work with Republicans today to seek a compromise on amendments to the measure. The legislation was aimed at easing terms for loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration, providing $12 billion in tax breaks and issuing grants to states to provide business loans.
Brilliant. Negotiate amendments to weaken the bill and then they won't vote for it anyway. That always works so well.
