Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is a wimp. He should resign. For the fourth straight year, the Nevada Democrat is refusing to issue or pass a budget plan for the country, Congress’s principle job. The result is a rudderless nation.
Mr. Reid refuses to propose a budget because he will be criticized politically for suggesting any cuts. The Republicans last year got skewered for proposing the austere “Ryan Plan,” and they knew they would before doing it. But that’s what leaders are supposed to do — make tough calls and endure the consequences.
Republicans aren’t always brave. They chicken out all the time. But never to the extent of what Harry Reid is doing. He should be ridden out of Washington on a rail for cowardice.
