"People like my friend Bob today have had miracles in their lives all over America during the past year because of that health care bill having passed, because a child under 18 who has a pre-existing illness cannot be denied insurance," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said on the Senate floor Thursday morning.

I think we could have even more medical miracles with a combination of tort reform and free markets than with socialist Obamacare. The need to lower health costs is real, the intrusive hand of government is not the best answer.

This communist doesn´t care for elderly relatives. If you´ve had to care for one lately, you´ll know what I´m talking about. The Death Panels are already here for many of them.

If the Dems. had any brains at all, which they don’t, they would keep Reid away from microphones. Sometimes, I think the guy is either drunk or senile.

Reid hasn’t tried to find a doc lately, especially a doc taking new Medicare patients.

The real story here isn’t Harry Reid making stupid stmts. Anyone other than a hermit knows that’s what Harry does. No, the real story is the UT electorate who keep sending him back to DC. When Harry makes stmts like this its a play to his constituency. They must truly be a pack of drooling imbeciles.

OK. Let’s hear from “Bob” then about his medical miracle.

Bob, you’re next!

My question is: Exactly at what cost does this pre-existing conditions insurance come now since Obamacare? - You could get pre-existing condition insurance BEFORE Obamacare; it would just cost you an arm and a leg. I’m sure it’s not for free!

Sure, Harry; and there are "thousands of people alive today" because of taxpayer-funded Cowboy Poetry.

Dems think we're all morons.

Harry Reid is a vile, detestable individual capable of stooping to any depth to hold on to power. As long as he is in a position to toss hundreds of millions of dollars Nevada’s direction he is safe. The key to defeating Reid would have been to have been able to retake the Senate. Maybe next time (if he continues to run).

Yes Pinky, many people have prayed for miracles to get over afflictions before your rationing boards kick in.

Reid’s tombstone will simply say “Harry never met a lie he didn’t like”.

Anyone that believes Reid cares about anything other than enforcing his own personal power over our lives and sucking $$$ from the Unions needs a shrink!

Obummer, Reid, Pelosi and 90% of Congress are consumed with enforcing their power over the American people. Behold lies, deceit and corruption personified.

Everyone in Washington is looking at the looming disaster in the face and just hoping that a miracle can save us. I think they are all scared senseless.

How can any “miracles” have occurred when Obamacare hasn’t really kicked in yet?

Superb question, Twinkie!

And what about of those waivers from the program?

If it’s such a great deal, how come all the waivers?

Well, we know the answer for that one, don’t we?

What is Bob’s full name? I think Harry has a problem. Remember “Tommy” and his friend from Mexico. When Harry was a child he had an imaginary friend, Harvey. He was a giant rabbit. Harry lives in his own special world. This explains much of his behavior.

The sad thing is “we the people”, me included, sat on our hands while the “elected royalty” excluded themselves and their families from the law. That should have started something. Now there are more than a thousand other exemptions and we’re still sitting on our hands while people like Boner and Mitchell continue to “lead”.

Hallelujah Harry continues - “Friends, through the miracle of federal taxation, we’re going to take more money from the working people and give it to you, my constituents. Can I have an amen?”

Makes me wonder anew what the bugger Nevada was thinking last year, reelecting this clown. Same goes for Chuck U. Schumer, Dick Turbin, and the haughty John Kerry (who served in Vietnam)
