A White House official explains to ABC News that “congressional stupidity” is affecting the economy – not President Obama.

“What we need is for the Senate Minority Leader not to block a vote and for Boehner to allow a vote,” a White House official told ABC News. “The hits to our economy aren’t coming from outside factors, they’re coming from congressional stupidity.”

As Conn Carroll noted earlier this morning, Sen. Harry Reid is currently rounding up votes from Republican Senators for a tax package that would extend current tax rates for all incomes below $250,000 and fix the Alternative Minimum Tax.
