Via the Free Beacon, whats the most amazing thing about this? That Reid gets a variation of the why do you hate children? question thats typically reserved for Republicans? Or that he actually responds, when asked if hell agree to the Houses 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. Theyre not opposed to small, targeted, piecemeal bills in principle, in other words; theyve already showed that, if the politics of saying no are sufficiently toxic, theyll 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, theyre trying to deny uninsured Americans treatment for their illnesses. So heres 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 hes really committed to not giving an inch or hes betting big that the media wont punish him for taking this position.
Politics as usual for the democrats. like everyone else, children are just pawns to them in their twisted little game.
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 wouldnt 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 youre irresponsible and reckless ”
BASH: “Im just asking a question.”
Exactly. Pravda USSA will cover for him.
Or as the democrats put it:
“No problem, this is just retroactive abortion.”
(and yes, I believe they think this)
>>Exactly. Pravda USSA will cover for him.<<
Interestingly, the last 5 years have seen Pravda to be more Conservative than the GOP-E!
Of course Dems dont care about kids with cancer..they dont care about kids period..the RAT Party is the party of abortion..the would abort 10 yr olds if they could
Harry Reid wants to kill children! I’ll bet the old goat wants to eat them, too! Ohhhhhhhh........I’m feeling sick. A murdering child-eater. What’s he eat for a snack.....live kittens?
You can take that to the bank.
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.
Is there a fund to help these poor children?
He is more correctly described as “demonic”.
(my version of the grammar police)
Reid is lucky he’s not a Repub. The media would eviscerate him.
