Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday, blasting Reid’s “bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings” over the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

{mosads}“As a junior senator, I preside over the Senate. I usually do it in the morning,” Cotton said Wednesday on the Senate floor. “Which means I am forced to listen to the bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings of the minority leader.”

The Arkansas senator blasted Reid’s comments that there hasn’t been enough time to read the bill, noting that it’s been public for weeks.

“When was the last time the Minority Leader read a bill?” Cotton asked. “It was probably an electricity bill.” 

Cotton also took aim at Reid’s legacy, calling his leadership “cancerous.”

Reid warned on Wednesday that Democrats won’t support additional Pentagon funding that would break the budget deal brokered by President Obama and former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

“Democrats are going to proceed deliberately. We’re going to hold Republicans to their word on the budget agreement,” the Senate Democratic leader said. “We’re going to do our job as we want them to do theirs. Our armed forces and middle-class Americans deserve nothing else.”
