Harry Reid is a wonder to behold. The man has to be one of the most despicable human beings to ever hold power in these United States. He controls the Senate, which has not even passed a budget in over three years, one its most basic functions. But here he was on the Senate floor projecting his own wickedness onto his political foes when it comes to the fiscal cliff his party crafted.
But with hope fading, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said on the floor that “it looks like” the nation is going to miss the deadline.
Reid also put all the blame on House Speaker John Boehner, likening him to a dictator and claiming he was putting his speakership before the good of the country.
“John Boehner seems to care more about keeping his speakership than about keeping the nation on firm financial footing,” Reid said. “He’s waiting until Jan. 3 to get re-elected as speaker before he gets serious with negotiations because he has so many people … that won’t follow what he wants.”
Boehner’s office quickly shot back: “Senator Reid should talk less and legislate more. The House has already passed legislation to avoid the entire fiscal cliff. Senate Democrats have not,” Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said on the floor that his party has “bent over backwards.”
“We stepped way, way out of our comfort zone,” he said. We wanted an agreement, but we had no takers. The phone never rang. So here we are five days from the new year and we might finally start talking.” (Read More)
Yeah, and look who they have to talk to. A bunch of deranged progressives who are perfectly willing to send the economy over the cliff to come up with about 8 days of government spending. But even that’s not right, because they want to spend even more, so by the time they’re done it would be more like 6 or 7 days.
I understand how it happened, but I’m still amazed and shocked that Americans voted to keep such evil people into power.
Hey 53% of America – I hope you all enjoyed your blissful ignorance while it lasted. You’re about to find out what you voted for. I hope you’re happy with the product of your ignorance and ambivalence. You idiots created monsters like Harry Reid. Unfortunately, the rest of us are stuck finding a way to deal with your stupidity.
