It’s not surprising that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid would consider “the system” unfair — according to Roll Call’s most recent “Wealth of Congress” report, Reid is barely hanging on to his position among the top 100 richest members of Congress, holding down 94th place with a mere net worth of $2.8 million. Still, he manages to scrape by on a public servant’s salary.

Reid took to the Senate floor today, ostensibly to cut directly to the root of the problem that inspired the youth of Baltimore to riot, loot, commit arson, assault police officers, and so on.
