Harry Reid: I Just Can't Wait to Go Home and Hear My Constituents Tell Me How Awesome My Health Care Fiasco Is!

No, really. I mean, he really said that.

Do I believe he believes that?

Doesn't matter. He'll be gone in a year. He can believe whatever he likes.

"This is a happy day. (Senate Republican Leader) Mitch McConnell said on the floor that we're going to go home and hear our constituents rail against this bill. I don't believe that. I believe that the negativity that Leader McConnell and others have continually displayed on the floor has peaked, and now when people learn what's actually in the bill—and all the good it does—it is going to become more and more popular because it is good for America, good for the American people, and a true symbol of what we can do if we all pull together," said Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer.

On the floor before the vote, Majority Leader Harry Reid said, "We're going to hear an earful, but it's going to be an earful of wonderment and happiness that people waited for for a long time."


Hey, how about that Sue Lowden? Pretty easy on the eyes and a longtime conservative warrior. I don't know the full history -- I don't know Nevada politics -- but I'm told that she took over the party at it's lowest ebb and rebuilt it. Hard-working, and not afraid of partisan confrontation.

And she's also ten points ahead of Harry Reid in polls.

Just saying: Sue Lowden.


Sue Lowden

Unlike Harry Reid, she's not a delusional schizophrenic.

No bribes. No midnight bills. No Thorazine.


Isn't It Supposed to Work the Other Way 'Round? progressoverpeace seizes on this telling quote by Schumer:

I believe that the negativity that Leader McConnell and others have continually displayed on the floor has peaked, and now when people learn what's actually in the bill—and all the good it does—it is going to become more and more popular...

Isn't the citizenry supposed to be afforded a fair chance to "learn what's actually in the bill" before their alleged representatives vote it into operation?

And -- let's face it, we are not just talking about citizens "learning what's actually in the bill." We are talking about Senators, including Schumer, finally taking the time to learn themselves what oddball provisions have been put into this crazy-quilt patchwork of bribes and sell-outs and taxes and death panels.

They cobbled this thing together with no game plan, and they did so in a furious rush. Something like 2700 pages and it's never actually been read, merely written at 1 a.m. by legislative staffers with no actual goal in mind except to get this one Senator on board this minute, and now this other Senator the next.

Schumer will not go on any interview shows where the host is so ungallant as to quiz him on what various sections of this Frankenstein's monster of naive destructiveness says. If he did, it would be clear by question three he has as little idea what this bill says as you or I do.
