Harry Reid used the massive destruction caused by flooding in parts of Colorado on the Senate floor Tuesday morning to slam House Republicans for partisanship and wasting the "taxpayer's time" trying to repeal ObamaCare.
Reid listed numerous issues that Congress should be focusing its time during session this year and lamented that the House Republicans refused to get on board with President's domestic agenda.
"ObamaCare is the law of the land. It's time for Republican's to mature," Reid said, "to grow up ... It's time for Republicans to stop denying reality."
After suggesting that Congress should be addressing issues with infrastructure, Reid focused on "climate change."
"Climate change is here," Reid said. "We're doing nothing about it."
Reid also suggested that Congress should "try passing immigration reform" before listing the economic benefits of ObamaCare.
