For anyone unaware: Senator Reid represented Nevada for three decades, serving as Majority Leader for eight of those thirty years (2007-15), making him one of the two most powerful lawmakers in the USA. Before his long Senate tenure, he was a member of the House of Representatives, Lt. Governor of Nevada and head of the state's Gaming Commission (gambling regulator). Senator Reid is reported to have undergone surgery and treatment for pancreatic cancer last year; could this have an influence on what he is now saying? As of February this year, the condition has been reported in remission.
