Reid vows to block vote on Paul's 'life at conception' amendment to flood bill - The Hill's Video: An exasperated Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said that he would not allow a vote on an amendment clarifying that life begins at conception, which Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) offered to a flood insurance bill.
"I'm told last night that one of our Republican senators wants to offer an amendment — listen to this one — wants to offer an amendment on when life begins," Reid said. "There will not be a vote on that on flood insurance. We'll either do flood insurance with amendments that deal with flood insurance, or we won't do it, we'll have an extension. I don't understand what this is all about. But I want everyone to know: This flood insurance is extremely important."
Editor: Beg pardon, Sen. Reid, but the right to life is pretty important.
