Gosh, Harry had better hope the Docs aren't going to use their “Reconciliation” procedure - they only give a 51% effort in that case.

That’s awful. I hope Harry resigns his seat so he can be with his family.

I am sure that Reid’s wife and daughter will get the most paramount health care. Forget Obamacare! Politicians’ healthcare is like winning the one-hundred million dollar lottery 1 million times over.

Reid has a son named “Key” and they made fun of Sarah Palin’s children’s name.

One report says they were rear ended by a truck on I-95. Back and neck injuries, but they can feel their extremities.

Maybe this will be a heart changing moment for Harry.

I wonder if Harry will show his solidarity with Obamacare by giving them the painkiller instead of the surgery. My best to his family for a quick recovery.

Prayers for their safety and comfort.

On another note, I’ll bet they are glad that the current health care system is in place for them to get immediate treatment. I’ll also bet they didn’t even consider going up to Canada to take advantage of its “unbroken” universal healthcare system.

“”Harry Reid’s wife, Landra, suffered a broken neck, back and nose and his daughter, Lana, also sustained serious injuries in a chain-reaction car accident in Fairfax, Va. on Thursday according to Reid’s spokesman.

Both women’s injuries are considered serious but not life-threatening — and both have sensation in their extremities, an indication that they aren’t paralyzed, Reid spokesman Jim Manley said.

“They are being treated at a Washington-area hospital. While driving on a Washington, DC, highway, their vehicle was rear-ended by a semi-truck,” Manley wrote in an email.

“Mrs. Reid has a broken nose, broken back and broken neck. Lana has a neck injury and facial lacerations. Both Mrs. Reid and Lana are conscious, can feel their extremities, and according to doctors their injuries are non-life threatening. Senator Reid has been to the hospital and appreciates the support he and his family are receiving from Nevadans and his colleagues in the Senate.”

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.””

I am sorry they were hurt, but if it got Harry Reid away from the Senate floor, perhaps could it be divine intervention?

I’ll pray for Harry’s family, and for the unemployed men to not beat up their wives, and for the war not to be lost, and for Republicans not to act like slaveholders, and for Barak Obama to act black when he wants to and be articulate when he wants to.

Harry really should take an early retirement to be with his family at this troubling time.

What about that bill that had provisions for medical leave for self and/or family?

I don't remember what it is called. I just remember a coworker taking 6 weeks off, during which she was paid AND THEN QUIT AT THE END OF THE SIX WEEKS!

Best wishes for a fast recovery but Harry Reid ought to take this opportunity to get out of dodge, "on account of the family" and at least get out of the psychosis known as D.C.

I just heard that- good grief- his wife has a broken neck and back and he’s run back to the Senate?

Although- she’s probably worrying about his upcoming violence toward her since he’ll be unemployed soon...so she sent him back to work ;)

Not life threatening, but extremely painful I'm sure. Notwithstanding my opinions of Senator Reid, I'm praying for their recovery.

Those injuries are severe for a woman her age (the wife).
It will be a long recovery.

I wouldn’t wish this kind of trouble on my worst enemy. Rear-ended by a semi on I-95. It’s a very dangerous road.
God be with them all and may the doctors and nurses give them the best of American healthcare (pre-Obamacare style.)

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

Reid’s wife and daughter sent to hospital after car accident
Updated 6:15 p.m.
By Josh White and Shailagh Murray
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s wife and daughter were in a serious car accident Thursday afternoon on Interstate 95 in Fairfax County, and police said they are being treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Police said the Reids’ van was rear-ended and crushed by a fully loaded tractor-trailer while driving in heavy traffic.

Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said Landra G. Reid, 69, and Lana Reid-Barringer, 48, of McLean, were driving northbound on I-95 at about 1:10 p.m. in a 2005 Honda Odyssey van in stop-and-go traffic when Reid-Barringer began to stop for traffic ahead of her. A tractor-trailer loaded with rolls of plastic behind her did not stop and pushed the van into another car.

That car in turn hit a third car.

Geller said the van was crushed on both ends.
