Reid spokesman: Boehner "wasted an entire week"

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had been saying earlier Thursday House Speaker John Boehner was wasting his time with his Plan B...and after Boehner pulled the plan for a lack of vote, Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson reiterated the point.

Here's Jentleson's statement:

“It is now clear that to protect the middle class from the fiscal cliff, Speaker Boehner must allow a bill to pass with a combination of Democratic and Republican votes. Speaker Boehner’s partisan approach wasted an entire week and pushed middle-class families closer to the edge. The only way to avoid the cliff altogether is for Speaker Boehner to return to negotiations, and work with President Obama and the Senate to forge a bipartisan deal.”
