Reid Believes Tea Party Will Disappear

harry reid post 385 Reid Believes Tea Party Will Disappear

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid believes the conservative Tea Party movement will “disappear” once the national economy improves.

During an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Reid said the Tea Party was “born” from what he called the worst economy since the Great Depression. 

And the Nevada Democrat doesn’t think the movement “had the vigor and support that people thought it would.”  Reid, who won re-election against Tea Party-backed Republican Sharron Angle, also believes the results of November’s elections showed “the American people want us to work together.”  Reid also denounced efforts by the new Republican-controlled House to repeal the federal health care law, saying “we’re going to continue to improve it, but we’re going to continue to keep what we have.”
