SOUNDBITE: (English) Sen. Harry Reid, D-Majority Leader:"The House has a unique form of legislating. It's hour by hour. During, I don't know what's happened in the two hours I've been gone, but this morning before I got here, there were, floated, to the press and otherwise, three different proposals. I assume there are a couple more since then. Let's wait and see what the House does. When they send us something, we'll look at it as clearly and as closely as we can under that same determination that we've made. Open the government. There is so much pain and suffering out there. It is really tearjerking to say the least. So we want the government open. We want to be able to pay our bills. This is a situation where they do not know what they want. I hope the Republicans decide what they want, and we'll be happy to work with them in any way. I repeat for the fourth time right here - open the government, let us pay our bills, we'll negotiate with you about anything."STORYLINE:Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says Democrats will not negotiate with Republican lawmakers as long as the government is still partially closed.Reid spoke to reporters following a meeting on Thursday with President Barack Obama at the White House that lasted nearly two hours.
