Indiana Senator Dan Coats and seven other Senate Republicans held a press conference in the nation's Capitol Tuesday after Majority Leader Reid rejected their compromise proposal to reform unemployment insurance benefits.
Recalling what the majority leader said last week about amendments having no place in the process, Senator Coats says, "there's a better way to legislate than simply one party dictating to the other, 'this is it, take it or leave it."
Coats adds, " Hopefully, we've opened up the debate about the rights of the minority to participate in the process of legislating on behalf of the American people."
