This is why it is important that Americans take back the Senate in 2012. It’s time to tell the commie ‘RATS that the party is over.

Go for it Harry, dive on that grenade. I want the GOP to keep bringing up taxes (cuts) and obamacare over and over and over again. From now until November, keep making every ‘Rat b**tard stand up and show his/her true commie colors. Keep putting them out there in front of the voters saying “Yes we want to control your healthcare, yes we want to tax you more...” Do it Harry, please!

Well this will make room for a vote on a budget, right?

Rest assured he will!

He cannot allow votes on those things because he would loose those votes!

When Harry Hair-Lip Reid is Minority Leader in January 2013, we will hand him his lunch and he will be forever impotent.

Is there any reason why the RNC/ Romney can’t use a clip of this in a commercial? People need to *see* the truth about the democrats (who are the real “party of no”)

How are they going to do that if Reid doesn’t allow the vote to take place?

Reid is from the Party of No, so that’s not a surprise.

Thanks Bigun.

Never would have been re-elected last time without ought-right coercion by union thugs in Vegas and Reno.

This morning on the Senate floor, Senate majority leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, pledged to block Republican efforts to vote on the repeal of Obamacare...

It would never pass the Democrat-controlled Senate, even if it were put to a vote. (Besides which, President Obama would surely not be bashful about using his veto pen, considering that ObamaCare is his signature achievement.)

Harry Reid simply does not want to force his fellow Democrats to go on record, in support of this monstrosity.

But if the GOP can gain control of the Senate in November (while holding the House), and if Mitt Romney can win the presidency, it will be an entirely different story in January...

I think you are wrong about it not passing the senate but we are never going to find out it seems.

In ‘52, that was Ike’s motto. Had enough? I can only hope Libertarians will drop their silly electoral politics and come and support every Pub and Mitt to oust as many Dems in both houses. In NV. Heller has to beat that Reid clone Dem. TEAS, Reagan Dems, and Indies should all unite to make sure Obama and Reid can never team up again to destroy free enterprise, our health system, make sure we have a real budget vote and and end to Harry’s snarky, smarmy lies which go hand and hand with the WH’s.

Remember, 60 votes would be required--not just 51--in order for the bill to pass the (currently) Democrat-controlled Senate.

Still, one deeply hopes that control of the upper chamber manages to change hands soon, and Harry Reid trades titles with Mitch McConnell...
