Reid: Public will greet health care bill with 'joy and happiness'
Washington Examiner ^ | Byron York

Posted on 12/24/2009 5:55:38 AM PST by Def Conservative

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."

This thing is wildly unpopular. For that reason the WH is requesting that a reconciliation package isn't voted on until after the State of the Union speech. Obie needs another opportunity to “lie it up”.

I wonder how joyous Mr. Reid would be if I took his VISA card and bought him a five thousand dollar watch?

Mr. Reid is a putz...and a damned good one.

Absolutely, Harry and the Democrats will be “greeted as liberators” by the American people. /sarc

The voters will demonstrate their “joy and hapiness” by granting about 80 Democrat congressmen and 8 Democrat senators “early retirement” next November.

Has there ever been a political party more out of touch with the people than the Democrats? Harry Reid will never live this down,the fool.

Pelosi, Ried, Obama, the Hitlers of our time. Their names will be synonymous with Hitler for they have designed the American Holocaust. Their Death Panels will be their Final Solution for the elderly and ill in this country.

These dictators MUST be voted out of our government along with their cohorts and fellow traitors.

Her Reid, insanity is a disease. He will need to get treatment..and fast.
Reid's level of insanity is in very advanced stages already.

Between this announcement and Nancy Pelosi's invocation of God regarding abortions, the Communists are busy twisting the language for their own ends. "Arbeit macht frei," everyone.

He doesn't need to. He has already feathered his nest from crooked real estate deals with his piece of crap son. My guess is he will run again anyway because his rotten ego is out of control.

I have a question, once the Senate and House go to a Conference Committee and merge the two bills into a final bill will there be two more cloture votes (60 votes needed) in the Senate, one to begin debate and one to end debate and vote?

Harry is worth millons. You would think he would have tossed a few dollars to a disabled kid. Not. But he follows Obama who lets his half brother live im a mud hut and doesn't help.

Ya know, I can’t help but think the symbolism of this being done on the eve of the birth of christ. It just seems they are giving the finger to all people of faith. They know what we believe and they just passed a bill that is anti-american and pro-abortion....

One time when I was exiled in Wisconsin and so home sick for Colorado, a friend decided to visit for Christmas. She asked what I wanted from Colorado and I said anything, I would even welcome a Colorado Cow pie.

Well - she took me at my word and spray painted a cow pie gold and put glitter on it. It was quite lovely actually, except it wasn’t quite dry all the way through. After an evening of wondering what smelled under the tree she said, you might want to open my present. We did and had a great laugh and promptly put the present back into it’s wrapping and set it on the front porch.

Much to our surprise and chuckles, someone over night had stolen the present. He He.
I feel that Harry Reid and company gave us a cow pie in the form of health reform. Trouble is nobody is stupid enough to steal it if we put it out to dry.

If I understand this correctly, 30 million people will now be forced to buy health coverage or be fined 750. This forced insurance will cost 876 billion or 29200 per uninsured person.

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.
