Harry Reid: Judge Judy Would Throw Out GOP Lawsuit

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 19:23:46 +0000

Ethan Miller/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Paging Judge Judy. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Monday the snarky TV judge would throw out the lawsuit crafted by House Republicans in “half a second.”

“This is a phony trial that will come up. It’s a show trial. It’s what Republicans want. I guess that’s what they want, but if that’s really what they want, they should go talk to Judge Judy. Think she would throw this case out in a half a second,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “The United States Congress is no place for inane, politically motivated litigation. I think Judge Judy would agree.”

“It’s expensive and wasteful. It’s wasting taxpayers hard earned money on something that is without any merit,” he added. “Enough is enough. The fight over Obamacare should be long since ended. The law’s here to stay.”

Last week, House Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans released a draft of a resolution which would authorize the House to sue President Obama for not faithfully executing the law. The White House has called the lawsuit a “political stunt.”
