“I feel very good with my relationship with the White House and the Senate’s relationship,” Reid, who has reportedly clashed with the administration in the past, said during an interview on CNN’s State of the Union.
“I don’t know why anybody is concerned,” Reid said, adding, “They have to guard their money. I didn’t expect them to bring their checks with them.”
Reid also blasted what he called Republican “obstructionism” in the Senate.
“Why does everything have to be a fight? There doesn’t have to be a fight,” he said, arguing that “Congress looks bad” after contentious fights between Republican and Democratic lawmakers.
