Skip to comments.Reid: Public will greet health care bill with 'joy and happiness'

In the final minutes of the Senate health care debate, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said lawmakers would hear "an earful" about the national health care bill from constituents who are solidly opposed to the legislation. In response, Majority Leader Harry Reid cited the case of a young disabled boy in Nevada who Reid said will now have health coverage and said that Democrats will indeed hear an earful -- "an earful of joy and happiness."
"Yes, we'll hear an earful," Reid added, "but it will be an earful of wonderment and happiness."

Words have ceased to have meaning, if this is true. He’s such a liar
Funny, I was thinking tar, rope, feathers and 535 dead swinging bodies from the steps of the Capitol for Christmas .....
Am I missing something?
Sorry Harry, you stinking, reeking turd. All joy and happiness in America is gone, thanks to you.
Joy and happiness will happen after some pretty dark times until you communist vipers are removed and jailed for treason against the Republic.
With any luck he will contract the swine flu as a result.
I guess this proves that the human capacity for self-delusion is virtually limitless
Yea Harry. We are all just peeing from the excitement.
Better `en a roller coaster Harry.
Say Harry, here is a fun thing, pick a color
The answer to your question is yes. If the conference committe changes the Senate bill in any way, , when it comes back to the Senate, there must be a cloture requiring 60 votes before a final vote. On the other hand, if the House chooses to rubber stamp the Senate Bill (meaning no changes), the Senate will not even have to vote on it.
I was listening to Pat Caddell speaking with Mark Simone sitting in for Sean Hannity earlier this week.
He was saying that he has never seen the depth of antipathy towards the health care "Reform" bill and the Democrats.
He also said that the Dems have no clue how bad this will hurt them in the 2010 elections.
Mark is a middle of the road guy and was very taken aback by the strength of Pat Caddell's comments.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Obama comes to mind. Harry is a close second however.
Yes he does. For about half the population, he is correct.
If they think we will great this with joy and happiness how do they think we are going great cap & trade, with euphoria?
Important to remember that Hitler was elected by popular vote.
The people were tired of the old ways, and looked forward to change.
It will be three years before that kid in Nevada sees any benefits from Obamacare.
And they’ll continue to pay the taxes. Because if you don’t pay the taxes to support this, you are “stealing from us all” and “shirking your patriotic duty” and avoiding your “moral duty” and not contributing to “charity”.
Don’t ever stop paying your taxes. It’s not like slavery, or anything.
