Harry Reid: Republicans ‘Fixated on Destroying Our Government, Our Economy’
CNSNews ^ | March 2, 2011 | Dan Joseph

(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 can’t 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 they’re so fixated on destroying our government, our economy.”

VIDEO 53 seconds

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.

Reid’s home state of Nevada has the highest home foreclosure rate in the United States. One out of every 93 properties is currently in foreclosure.

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.

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..

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.

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.

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?

FUHR!!!

The same Harry Reid that said the war was lost while our
troops were in harms way?

On March 5, 2010, Senator Harry Reid said, 'Today is a big day in America.
Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.'

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?

with advance blame placement for the failure of the economy when the final chocks are kicked out from under us.

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.
