Published by Business Insider on Fri, 30 Sep 2016

No one expected them to agree with everything that he did or tried to do, but Americans deserve better than the way Republicans behaved toward President Obama."Reid said it was "clear" Republicans were treating Obama with "contempt" by blocking much of his agenda and, most recently, his Supreme Court nominee."Republicans have not done their basic work of government," he said.The outgoing Democrat linked the actions of GOP lawmakers to Trump, arguing the party had, in fact, created him."Everything that he's said, stood for, done in this bizarre campaign that he's run has comefiltered up from what's going on in the Republican Senate," Reid said.
