(CNSNews.com) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) today accused congressional Republicans of being fixated on destroying the U.S. government and economy.
At a Capitol Hill Press conference to announce that the Senate had agreed to a continuing resolution that will keep the government funded through March 18th, Reid was asked about GOP plans to eliminate the Home Affordable Modification Program--a program that has permanently modified nearly 600,000 loans since its inception.
Why cant they work on things that help the economy? Reid asked. Why do they have to work on things that hurt the economy? Why would they want to eliminate a program like that? Just because it came from the White House? This is hard for me to understand why theyre so fixated on destroying our government, our economy.

House and Senate Republicans, meanwhile, say the HAMP program, though well-intentioned, is doing more harm than good for struggling homeowners and making things worse for many homeowners.
Reids home state of Nevada has the highest home foreclosure rate in the United States. One out of every 93 properties is currently in foreclosure.
He's not called Dingy Harry for nothing, got it wrong again.
Harry Reid is a lying idiot and should be ashamed of himself!
Government..maybe. Economy, definitely not.
Why would Republicans want to follow your lead, Harry?
If by “Our Government” he’s referring specifically to the Democrat’s vision of socialist utopia then I certainly would hope so.
destroy you harry, save the country.
It’s called PROJECTION Harry!
Harry, your hideous HC bill is going to be repealed. We are taking our country back, now, sit down and SHUT UP
Even a child knows the pot always accuses the kettle of being black.
Well, once again folks are getting this wrong. Yes, of course he’s missing the point - but it’s deliberate. He’s lying through his little green teeth. BUT, and this is the big BUT, he’s running around pubbies and conservatives with advance blame placement for the failure of the economy when the final chocks are kicked out from under us.
Wait and see.
Reid knows we are dying as a country in this overwhelming debt they have put us in but would rather see us die than admit we have to reverse course, he is a liar and a coward..
Reid is busy projecting again.
Well Harry your guy in the White House has destroyed the economy, I would like to see the republicans destroy your type of government.
There, fixed it! LOL
Harry knows a lot about destroying an economy. It’s at the very top of his resume.
lol he need in the lock down unit at a mental institution.
I have realized something (maybe I’m just slow, but please forgive me - I went to public schools): Anytime a liberal accuses conservatives of something, it’s actually a ploy to distract us from what they themselves are already doing.
Well if we really want to destroy the DEMOCRATS we can agree with Harry and give the Democrats all the Money they want, Only Problem along with the Democrats going down the Tubes would be Our country
How can you destroy something that is already in ruins?
VI Lenin: "Accuse others of what you do."
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
More projection from a deranged liberal.
Harry needs to turn around and look at his guy in the White House if he wants to see someone who is destroying the country.
New York City
All Blue, all broke.
You had 4.5 years to do it harry... you and your team have destroyed America... it’s over... the surge has failed... America is lost... you bastard.
Is this the same Harry Reid that came out in October 2008
and declared that a major insurance company was on the verge
of bankruptcy...then later said he mispoke?
The same Harry Reid that said the war was lost while our
troops were in harms way?
If only they were fixated on destroying government, if only . . . . .
Where are the jobs Harry?
Why can’t the republicans be democrats?
Why can’t they just support ideas they don’t believe in?
Why can’t they share some of the blame with us? Then we can point the finger at them when things go wrong.
With enemies like Harry, who needs to be civil? If this is Harry being civil, f**k the democrats until they are dust.
Yep, Harry comes off with stuff like this and then expects bipartisanship, the turkey’s living in lala land.
Republicans had better start sticking together, oops, I guess there’s too many RINOs.
Harry Reid is a card carrying moron and after the disaster he has presided over in the past several years who in their right mind listens to him anyway?
Yup. In marketing it's called a pre-sell. Efforts to correct this administration's profligate spending will be blamed for the economic malaise that would have happened anyway. Leave it to scum like Harry Reid to set it up. I bet he thinks he's smart, too.
