Instead working 100 % on the fiscal cliff crisis that is rapidly descending upon the nation, Senator Harry Reid has apparently turned himself into a event planner (weddings next?)
The Senate will screen the new Steven Spielberg movie (scroll back to yesterday’s postings.) I assume at a minimum you, the taxpayer, will be paying to keep the Capitol open longer for the big event screening and for all the extra security (how does THAT make you feel?)
Now there is more….apparently the Senate Majority Event Planner wants to order food for the party / screening (see below.) Are you paying for that too?
See the note below from my FNC colleague:
Urgent: FNC Confirms Senate “Lincoln” Screening
From a Senate aide with knowledge of the arrangement:
Set for Dec 19 in the Congressional Auditorium in the CVC
Members and spouses only
Maj Ldr Harry Reid is seeking a waiver to allow food in auditorium.
Told snacks will include:
Movie snacks (candy)
On their way into the auditorium, members will pass statues of three members of the Confederate army that are part of the National Statuary Hall Collection (each state has 2 statues to commemorate historic citizens):
James Z. George Mississippi Colonel in confederacy
Lt. Gen Wade Hampton South Carolina
Gen. E Kirby Smith CSA (“florida’s memorial to her most distinguished soldier”) in his Confederate uniform
