Skip to comments.Reid: 'House Republicans have truly lost their minds'
Posted on 05/15/2013 4:59:40 PM PDT by mdittmar
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.
Let Hairy explain how the IRS run Death Panels are going to assume life until death is proven, unlike the usual IRS Death until Life is proven.
All ALINSKY....all the time...
Hairy Roid is pushing his luck even talking about this.
Maybe I should sell some of my ill-gotten real estate and help the hungry.
"The word is out".. HOW, Reid, HOW????
Damn Harry does this mean you Democrat traitors and violators of the Constitution are crazy when you want to vote for gun control again.
This is one stupid MF.
With this kind of flak...we must be over the target!
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.
Hmmm... smells like fear to me.
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!
Really Reid? You deucebag dems keep trying to pass gun control.
“House Republicans Have Truly Lost Their Minds”
Spoken as a true soviet official.
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.
Great tag line.
What’s the matter Dingy? Why are the front of your pants all wet? Americans are coming for you commies and were going to put all of your asses in jail where they belong. Retards like you shouldn’t be saying other people have lost their minds. You creep!
For the time being at least. Thx much!
Democrats lost their morals long ago. All that’s left is the argument.
Choke on a brick, and drop dead, Reid POS.
But ain't it tasty.
Don't worry too much. Good will win out even til the End of Times.
Of course, in the End of Times...the victory will be a bit more dramatic.;-)
no way in hell does anyone, especially IRS, deserve to have our healthcare info...go to hell us govt!!!!!!!!!!!
DeathCare aka AuschwitzCare - Capo Dingy Harry’s claim to fame.
Check out post #3.
Let’s make this corpsely libtard minority leader in 2014.
I fully expect nobama to come out and really blister Dingy’s ass for making these comments. They are hateful, divisive, and do not promote a sense of “working together.”
Then again, it could be Harry’s looking for his own dog to wag.
A small yippy dog. Ankle biter.
Just about everything that comes out of his mouth is an insult to my intelligence. He truly is an evil and very very sick man.
Of course Boehner’s stupid comment is coming back to bite him.
I smell fear. Good.
They also seem to have lost their minds. That's what happens when people let go of the Truth.
Life is not relative...it is absolute.
When folks reinterpret life with relative values (i.e. everyone is OK...there is no sin, no evil)...life disintegrates into chaos and confusion. It no longer makes sense.
And those who believe this tripe become insane...they have no anchor...no baseline for sanity.
They believe they are sane...while all the time they spout insane principles.
Important here to define sanity.
Sanity is the rational grasp nearest reality. Those who grab onto reality at the closest point will survive...those at the other end will die and be forgotten.
Its weird seeing the word 'popular' in any article related to Obamacare.
Well like my mom always said, if at first you don’t succeed, try try again
How lazy they have gotten. It’s supposed to be “Wildly Popular”!
Nancy Pelosi sounds even dumber than than the other two.
Majority Leader Reid has refused to allow the Senate to vote on any of the previous pieces of repeal legislation passed by the House. After this one passes, he will again refuse to allow the Senate to vote on it. Does he fear that repeal might pass in the Senate also?
Reid should be asked about socialism, even though it fails in everything, he and the Democrats keep trying to force it on people who want nothing to do with it.
Ooooo, I'm an extremist.
"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." - Barry Goldwater.
I love the extremists among Congressional Republicans and despise all of the moderates there.
Exactly, they have had the power to kill this from day one. Bonehead has been funding it.
I’m going to find a great vet for my dog.
Lost their mind?
We could look back through congressional history and it would be difficult to find another person as despicable as Harry Reid who served in his office.
if there was a tagline hall of fame... i’d nominate that one...
and vote for it in the first wave.
Democrats lost their morals long ago. All thats left is the argument.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Kind of reminiscent of the ‘guy’ to ‘gal’:
“Would you go to bed with me for a million dollars”
“Well, I would have to think about it”
“Would you go to bed with me for 500 bucks”
“HELL NO! You must think I am some kind of prostitute”.
“WE have already established what YOU ARE!. We are just negotiating a price.”
