Reid, Angle trade barbs in Nevada debate

LAS VEGAS (AP) - October 14, 2010

"I have never voted for tax breaks for people who are here illegally," he said, rebutting one of the allegations Angle has made in their close, caustic and costly campaign for the Senate.

Angle played the aggressor from the opening moments of the hour-long debate, an event that produced a stream of disagreements on the economy, health care, immigration and more.

Reid took aim at Angle's statement that it's not the job of a senator to create jobs. "What she's talking about is extreme," he said.

"Harry Reid, it's not your job to create jobs," she replied sharply. "It's your job to create policy" that leads to the creation of jobs."
