WASHINGTON (AP) ― Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's wife and daughter are recovering in a Washington-area hospital after a car accident.

A spokesman for Reid says the majority leader's wife, Landra, and their daughter, Lana, were injured Thursday when their vehicle was rear-ended. Reid left the Senate for the hospital. The spokesman says details are unclear.

Yes, but that was posted before the update about their condition. That’s why I questioned it.

Fox said he was already back to health care meetings.

If I and my child both broke our necks and my husband rushed back to work, there would be Hell to pay in our household. Does he even have a soul?

Priorities have been revealed folks.....once again.

Bad news.

Update: Crash leaves Reid's wife with broken neck, back

It sounds like they are receiving good care and will survive.

Right now they are probably both heavily sedated and don’t know or care if Harry is there or not.

No doubt. But Harry knows. And he's chosen his priorities. Which one of us would--could!--leave our wife and daughter at a time like that? They are not ferrets you drop off at the vet.

“Ted Kennedy (D-HELL) is unavailable for comment...”

Geller said the van was crushed on both ends.

I don't think Chris Dodd was available for comment either. ;-)

Harry Reid was tested. He was given a choice between being with his family in their time of need, or pursing 0bama’s evil agenda to deprive Americans of their healthcare.

He made his choice, and he will reap its consequences.

But thank goodness, he’s back to work for the American people! Hate to have an inconvenience like a semi hitting your wife and child delay health care reform. (He’s already back in meetings on Capitol Hill.)

Frankly, but sadly, I’m suspicious of anything that revolves around the scoundrels Harry Reid and the demrat party.

Could this be a sympathy play like the one The Breck Girl tried to pull off with his wife’s alleged cancer? While, by the way, he was screwing another woman.

It makes me emotional too. And frightened that heartless, soulless men who show callousness towards their own kin would be making decisions that have such effect on our generations to come.

If he shows so little care for his wife and child, how much less does he care for......me? Or you?

The semi hit them from behind and pushed them into the car in front. Many rear-end collision cause broken necks - the “broken back” part could just be 2 inches below that. Just thinkin......

A fully loaded tractor-trailer. Traffic was slowing down...the trucker was not.

Reid doesn’t care, why should we? His goon bureaucrats would probaly turn us down for care...yet we are forced to pay for his family.

I wish his wife and daughter well and hope thay will be rid of this scum sooner rather than later.

Believe me folks, if it was all that bad for them, he would have used sympathy rather than heading back to Capitol Hill.

He stepped on a crack
and broke his wifes back

Damn him

Oh no! With a horrible tragedy like this, we must pass ObamaCare out of sympathy for Harry!!

Yes, Obama will say it is IMPERATIVE that the bill be passed quickly so Americans will not have such medical crises.

Also, it will be called "Harry's Bill" since it was his life wish that medical care for everyone would be passed while he was still the big dog in the Senate.

I wonder if Harry will show his solidarity with Obamacare by giving them the painkiller instead of the surgery.

Maybe they will get one of those "Obama Breathalyzers."

"The 70-year-old senator visited them shortly after hearing of the accident at 2:15 p.m., then returned to his office in the Capitol to work on health-care legislation, said Reid spokesman Jim Manley.

Asked whether Reid had considered skipping the meeting and staying at the hospital, Manley responded, "Let's be clear, for those who may know, he loves that woman more than life itself. But she's in good hands at the hospital and [he] felt the need to come back and work on this piece of legislation ...."

What partner does that??? ..goes right back to work???? I don't care if the Spokesman says for Reid.."she's in good hands"!! It's just the worry factor, that keeps a loved one close in such a time. Who could concentrate when a daughter and spouse have been in an accident to any degree of injury.

I don't say this for just Reid, would say the same for any member of any party.

Just my opinion, but then I am not a "politician", a different breed of animal, I guess.

I hope for a good recovery of the Reids.

I do too. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.

I almost feel as though posters here care more about them than their own family. I’m sad they got hurt, and even sadder they were abandoned at the hospital for a meeting on healthcare. Shameless and sad.

He should never have left them. He is a POS and it is too late.

Stealing our healthcare is more important than his wife and daughter. This SOS should be dropped off of free taxpayer funded healthcare.

Reid was pulled out of a meeting and was rushed to the hospital to visit them but was expected to return to the Senate this evening, aides said.”

What a skunk!

Now I feel doubly sorry for his wife and daughter.
