Reid gives condescending reply to CNNís Dana Bash over cancer research funding [VIDEO]
Daily Caller ^ | October 2, 2013 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 10/02/2013 1:04:42 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

.........But that led to a follow-up question from Bash, and a condescending reply from the Senate majority leader.

BASH: But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?

REID: Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. To have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing maybe means you’re irresponsible and reckless.

BASH: I’m just asking a question.

I’ve seen NO mention of this on political ‘reporting’ sites.
Rollcall, POLITICO... nothing.

Disgusting.

Whooaa! I smell a 2014 campaign comercial or two, if the Republicans have the cajones to use this.

..."“Listen, Sen. [Dick] Durbin explained that very well, and he did it here, he did it on the floor earlier, as did Sen. Schumer,” Reid replied."......

Sen. Dick Durbin gave false facts about his own daughter in Obamacare speech

It’s not enough! Fundraising for Harry should be a 20 year minimum sentence...

Harry Reid says children must suffer for known flawed Obamacare funding. Film not at 11.

I also loved it that he said “who gave them the right to determine what gets funded or not”, referring to the House of Representatives, whose Constitutional role is to determine what gets funded or not.

Amazing!

First, although I think that it would be appropriate for the states to delegate to Congress, via the badly neglected Constitution, the specific power to tax and spend for cancer research, it remains that the states have never granted Congress the specific power to do so.

Also, although the states have only granted Congress the power to regulate, tax and spend for the US mail service where domestic issues are concerned, I thought it ironical that hypocrite Reid is complaining about the following. He actually complained about Boehner picking and choosing which parts of the federal government are going to be funded since Obamacare is going to pick and chose all decisions that people would otherwise want to make for themselves concerning their healthcare.

It also tells you what actually happened when Obama was first elected. We had two US Senators running against each other. Basically the old guard of the US Senate has taken tyrannical control of the US Government via their Junior Senator President Obama. Explains why McCain said Obama would make a good President. When the evidence was clear that Obama had very little life experience for such a roll.

IIRC, Harry’s not up for re-election until 2016. Best keep this warm until then...

Patriots need to at least try to win majority control of Senate in 2014.

If you listen closely to the clip Ried says “Why wouldn’t we want to do that.

Get over there and post your SAD, SAD story of how your family is starving after ONE DAY of government slow down...

If these are really government employees they need to learn how to manage their finances a little better, not to mention OUR FINANCES they are handling! No wonder we as a country are BROKE...

******

I’m a current or retired federal employee.

My bills are getting all strewed up already. I am worried about finances and losing sleep. Already had to cancel my daughters birthday party because I can’t afford it. I feel pathetic.

about 3h ago

I live in the D.C. area.

My spouse is a federal contractor and it’s unclear whether or not she will be paid. We’re luckier than plenty of people, but it’s still a really huge stress for us. If it goes on too long we will have trouble paying our bills on one salary.

I live in the D.C. area, am a current or retired federal employee, receive federal benefits and will be inconvenienced.

Looks likely I’ll be collecting unemployment. Surreal. Sad.

October 1

I live in the D.C. area, am a current or retired federal employee and will be inconvenienced.

I’m a DoD employee, and just went through 8 days of furlough. My savings was basically decimated during this time. If I don’t get paid, I don’t have much to fall back on. My husband is also unemployed.

I’m a current or retired federal employee.

Sitting down with my bills and determining which ones I can’t pay without any salary coming in. What I have is what I have to live on until the shutdown ends.

October 1

I live in the D.C. area.

My wife woke up crying today because we aren’t going to be able to pay our bills. I’m a federal contract employee who works onsite at a federal agency. Unlike my federal collegues, I have zero chance for retroactive pay. I’ve seen very little mention of how federal contractors are affected by this.

This needs to be all over Facebook, Twitter, etc. Show the dumbbells who think that conservatives are so evil how callous these Demoncrats are. Of course, killing children isn’t something new to Harry Reid or the libs. They’ve been doing it openly since 1973...

It is past time to start boycotting Las Vegas and Reno, until those controlling those cities and casinos get rid of Reid.
