Reid has little to say about aid to Egypt

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is keeping in touch with the White House on aid to Egypt, and that's as much as he'll say.

At a news conference Tuesday, Reid, D-Nevada, was asked if he believed there had been a coup in Egypt, and how the U.S. should proceed.

"Here's how I feel about what's going on in Egypt.  I don't think there's anyone that's not concerned about what took place in Egypt. It's critical that we acknowledge that part of the Arab Spring, that Egypt moves forward in the democratic process," he said.

"On aid to Egypt, the administration's taking a look at the question of continuing aid to Egypt, and they're keeping us informed as they move through the process.  And that's all I'm going to say today on that."

Simple solution. The House notifies Obama that since no further aid to Egypt can be provided due to the military coup, any further funding will come out of the White House budget.


Reid has "little to say"? Do you mean he's not talking, or as usual, what he's saying has little impact?
