Skip to comments.Reid Threatens 'Nuclear Option' to Pass Health Care Reform
Posted on 09/22/2009 2:47:53 PM PDT by RED SOUTH
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid threatened on Tuesday to use a procedural maneuver to steamroll opponents of health care reform, even as a Senate panel began delicate negotiations over a package that could have the best chance at passing.

He should worry about keeping his job.
The big problem still remains...NO ONE has finalized how they will confiscate the money from us worker bees....
This really is getting closer to war...they’re going to try to force this down our throats...maybe that’s why Barry doesn’t want to move troops from here to Afghanistan.
More in my annoyed mind than anything.
If we work hard and KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, especially in states with blue dog rat senators, Reid may be unable to even get 50 votes.
The troops wouldnt do squat for 0 domestically.
He knows he’s losing his job..he’s laying the goundwork for his next job.
Tar and feather the marxist
Prove to all of America how out of touch and arrogant the Democrats are.
Give us one more example of why you need to be voted out of office.
The Republicans have already said they will use every trick possible to delay or stop it. If they do schedule a nuclear option vote on this we should schedule an armed march the same day in DC. Permit be damned.
But, I thought they had the votes.
If I were him I’d be sending as many of our troops overseas as possible. If the military thinks we have a domestic enemy in the Oval Office, they may ask the CinC to resign.
The American People (those of us who actually *do* something) just might have a “Nuclear Option” of our own.
If they had the votes, it would already be a reality...
If ANY Republicans sign onto this bill, they will be politically run out of town......and SO WILL THE DEMOCRATS WHO VOTE FOR THIS CRAP.
We the People might need to exercise our nuclear option. Nuke the federal government and start over.
There really are NO BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS......it’s just a matter of HOW MUCH THEY WANT TO STEAL FROM OUR WALLETS.
We need to get a Blue dog to replace his sorry butt int he Primaries and use the same strategy to remove the RINOS from other seats.
How a MANLY state like Nevada elects a GIRLIE MAN like REID is beyond me. Are there THAT many MORMONS in Neveda????
“He should worry about keeping his job.”
I’m not sure if that is an incentive for someone who is going to lose it anyway. His polling numbers are in the basement.
On the brighter side, I watched some of the markup of the Baucaus plan today. It isn’t near the marxist pile of dung that is HR 3200, nor a design to blow up the employer provided insurance model with a socialist bucket at the bottom.
I am still opposed to it, however, on the grounds that the constitution does not grant the United States authority to meddle in health care, among others. On a note more realistic of the political envionmrnt we are in, if they ripped out everything but the insurance exchange sans the standardiztion of plans, and discontinued the tax credit for employers providing insurance it would go alot farther in reducing cost for everyone involved than all of the regulation and taxes this thing adds.
In Las Vegas? Yes.
There are that many MORMONS living in LAS VEGAS??? I had no idea.
There will be a day when that corrupt, filthy f’in puke Harry Reid and his fellow ‘Rats will be on their knees (sit down Barney Frank, you idiot) and begging, pleading and whining for mercy from REAL Americans who will be taking them to a courtroom where they will account for their treason.
Then Judge Fenton will tell Schmidt to do his duty.
Harry, you play dirty and see what We the People do NEXT. You work for us, and do not ever forget it.
Why is this a threat? Usually you threaten someone to get them to change their behavior in some way. What change in behavior is he looking for? Who is he threatening? If the Dems can use the nuclear option and nobody can stop them then they are free to go right ahead and do so. The American people have foolishly given them that power and they can use it if the choose. So what’s up with threats? I don’t get it.
Rough tough Reid...LOL!
thats why Barry doesnt want to move troops from here to Afghanistan.
You really think the military has his back???
I think he’s got a “Honduras” problem in his future and when nobama’s herd pushes instead of mostly talk, it will happen.
Sounds like Reid wants to advance the revolution.”
Christmas could be interesting this year.
The “fallout” would be extremely unhealthy for the Dems.
Slimy harry dont talk about it do it! I triple dog dare you!!
My bad...I thought you said MORONS!!!!!:)
Dingy Harry’s power doesn’t come from LV Mormons. He was Nevada Gambling Commissioner and his base is the Mafia AND all the damn libs that moved to LV from kalifornia.
LOL!! Morons DO elect Democrats....easy mistake to make. What self respecting MORMON would vote for that creep??
Las Vegas lefties.
Go ahead, Harry! Make my day!! You idiot. You would be committing political suicide to go against the majority of voters.
He added earmarks to the HC bill which are intended for a hospital in NV. That usually works.
REVOLUTION!!!? Count me in!
I’m one and don’t support him one bit. I also don’t support RINO’s like Romney either!
I hope the Republicans pull out all the stall tactics. I understand they can make every bill, every amendment be read word for word.
Harry Reid is a muslim shill!!!!
The obama power structure consists of muslim shills, commies, health care rationers, New World Order supporters, and Soros sycophants. Shut them down and kick them out!!!!
Reid should *not* be concerned about his job, first because it’s gone, and second because he needs to be concerned that tens of millions of armed Americans might “respond”. I don’t advocate this, but I see it as more likely than peace.
That will be the end of them!
Quit threatening you coward. Just do what you got to do, Reid. Then it’s our move.
This fruitcake should keep in mind that what he is about to start, he may not be able to stop.
Stock up on Flex- cuffs and lots of rope.
Tar and feather him and then tether him far away.
Great.....tell your friends and family not to vote for Reiad and Romney.
As a former member of the LDS Church I have the utmost respect for Mormons and their Church. Despite the fact taht there are a lot of Mormons in Nevada, it’s not the Mormons who are voting for this guy...it’s the leftist amoral & immoral idiots in the metro areas. Reid has repeatedly stated that he believes that the Democrat agenda squares more with Mormon teaching than the Republican agenda. Clearly Harry Reid has no idea what his church teaches. At the very least he should have his Temple Recommend revoked.
Given that a majority of Americans oppose the democratic health care reform, the last thing the democrats want to do is use reconciliation, because they know they will be decimated in the next election if they go that route.
Exactly the reason the Republicans should force them to use reconciliation.
