Reid: 'House Republicans have truly lost their minds'
United Press International ^ | May 15, 2013 | United Press International

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Wednesday "House Republicans have truly lost their minds" under a popular definition of insanity.

Reid, speaking of House GOP leaders' plan to hold a 37th vote on repealing the Affordable Care Act -- commonly known as "Obamacare" -- cited a statement often attributed to Albert Einstein, that insanity is defined as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

"If that's true, the House Republicans have truly lost their minds," Reid said in a speech on the Senate floor.

Noting that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said after the 2012 election "Obamacare is the law of the land," Reid said, "Tea Party extremists bullied the speaker into holding another vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and roll back benefits for tens of millions of Americans."

Reid pointed out Boehner had said last week 70 freshmen members of Congress who had not previously had an opportunity to cast a vote to repeal the healthcare reform law have "been asking for an opportunity to vote on it."

He said House Republicans "will waste this week on yet another dead-end repeal vote."

"Perhaps Republicans think the 37th time is the charm." Reid said.

Citing a CBS News analysis putting the cost of the repeal votes at "$52.4 million and counting," Reid said that was enough money "to restore funding for 19 million meals for homebound seniors or 6,900 children dropped from the Head Start program" under federal spending cuts known as the sequester.

"Fortunately, Republicans' latest repeal effort -- their latest exercise in insanity, as described by Albert Einstein -- is doomed to fail like all the others," he said.

Harry, if they spend every cent the Govt takes in on repealing this I’m good with it. Because that means you can’t feed the victim groups. Or clothe them. Or give them phones, cars and laptops.

Or send weapons to Muslims.

If we had a Speaker of the House with a set of BALLS to go with that whiskey BOEHNER, we would already have this POS killed through the purse strings.

Shut down the government, including the entire budget for O’Bumbler to fly around on Air Force 1 as well as the entire White House staff, Let Obama and Moochelle make their own sandwiches and scrub their own toilets for a few weeks.. Send them home.

Wait two weeks before you answer the phone only reinstate spending with a signed repeal of Obama Care. Otherwise Keep the government on shut down all year. You run the 1/2 of 1/3 of the government that passes ALL spending. The House is THE PEOPLES HOUSE and the PEOPLE want Obamacare gone!

I dunno.... I need to hear some accounts of how prominent RATS are pulling their hair out worrying about 2014 before I can truly dismiss the idea that there’s a trap for us somewhere in there, there......

Too much red meat at one time, can’t help but worry about it.

Democrats lost their morals long ago. All that’s left is the argument.
