Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-Nev. this morning blasted Speaker John Boehner for failing to bring the House of Representatives back to Washington to pass a deal on the fiscal cliff.

“We are here in Washington working, while members of the House of Representatives are out watching movies and watching their kids play soccer and basketball and doing all kinds of things,” Reid said heatedly.

Reid blamed Boehner for running the House of Representatives under a “dictatorship of the Speaker” insisting that he was more worried about keeping his Speakership than helping everyday Americans.

Reid, ajourned the Senate last Wednesday evening for a screening of the movie ‘Lincoln’ on the Senate floor.
