Harry Reid: No, we wont agree to fund NIH in order to restart treatment for kids with cancer
Hotair ^

Posted on 10/02/2013 5:08:49 PM PDT by chessplayer

Via the Free Beacon, what’s the most amazing thing about this? That Reid gets a variation of the “why do you hate children?” question that’s typically reserved for Republicans? Or that he actually responds, when asked if he’ll agree to the House’s new bill to fund NIH in the name of keeping clinical trials for kids with cancer up and running, “Why would we want to do that?”

Am I awake?

Remember, both he and Obama already approved a House bill on Monday that made sure troops would continue to get paid during the shutdown. They’re not opposed to small, targeted, piecemeal bills in principle, in other words; they’ve already showed that, if the politics of saying no are sufficiently toxic, they’ll agree to fund federal agencies whose sustained deprivation would lead to egregious outcomes. In fact, the core Democratic message about the GOP is that, in opposing ObamaCare, they’re trying to deny uninsured Americans treatment for their illnesses. So here’s Boehner and the House caucus trying to counter that with the same sort of piecemeal bill that Senate Democrats already passed two days ago, and Reid decides that maintaining his “no negotiation” posture is worth telling cancer patients to chillax for awhile. Either he’s really committed to not giving an inch or he’s betting big that the media won’t punish him for taking this position.

The question and answer should be on billboards all over ht country and at the bottom should be “Democrats care for who?” or some variation. The short clip should be on ad spots all over the TV spectrum and the words on the radio.

If a Republican had said this, the MSM would tie it around the neck of the entire Republican party for the next fifty years.

Because Dingy Harry said it, it’s off to the memory hole.

Harry Reid is utterly Satanic. Seriously.

From the Beacon:

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. This is — 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.”

Or as the democrats put it:

“No problem, this is just retroactive abortion.”

(and yes, I believe they think this)

Interestingly, the last 5 years have seen Pravda to be more Conservative than the GOP-E!

Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats declare war on sick children.

Preview of Obamacare!

Let them die, we have elevator button pushers that are out of work.

The reporter was probably giving Reid an opportunity to explain why he refused to keep the NIH open. And the dolt completely dropped the ball.

Now that was a strange exchange. Did Dirty Harry just give her a warning? Like, get back on the reservation, or else?

Laz, he's not “Satanic”.

He is more correctly described as “demonic”.

Reid is lucky he’s not a Repub. The media would eviscerate him.

That’s what I thought. Drudge is having fun with Reid’s comments. Some of the comments at his linked article are vicious.

Soiled diaper harry just gave the voters a peek at what obamacare will look like for our children, after all they wallow and are giddy at the killing of the most innocent babies.
