Republicans efforts to block Wall Street reform are "anti-American," Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said today.
The GOP has successfully blocked Democratic efforts to begin debate on the bill.
"But all the talk of the Republicans about wanting to do something about this before it gets on the floor is really anti-Senate and anti-American," Reid told reporters.
"They keep stalling and they keep stalling," he added. "And it appears that they're more concerned about taking care of the fat cats on Wall Street than they are the people who aren't so fat, the people who have been hit so hard, the consumers of America."
Democrats plan to keep the Senate in session all night, forcing Republicans to vote repeatedly on preventing debate.
