Skip to comments.Harry Reid: Why Would We Want To Pass A Bill To Help Children With Cancer?

You lying, rotten scoundrel booty Harry.
Why is anyone surprised at Harry Reid’s answer?
Socialism/communism/US Democrat Party is not interested in the welfare of individuals but worships at the altar of Big Government only.
Should have commercials with that snippet throughout the upcoming elections.
Harry Reid goes to Chuck E Cheese to pop kids birthday balloons. He pushes the kids faces into their birthday cakes. “Die you little pizza munchers! Die!”
Harry Reid at Chuck E Cheese.
“You want to play games? Well, here’s a game that I like. I call it ‘THE ROLL OVER KIDS HANDS WITH A PIZZA CUTTER GAME’! How do you like this game?”
“Mommy! Make the bad old man go away!”
Conservatives need to beat Harry Reid over the head with this until the handle breaks. And then do it some more.
What is conservative about using government funds to help kids with cancer?
In the main, I agree with you. It’s quite a legitimate argument you make.
I would also submit, however, that Reid’s obstructionism was the point of my post.
On that we agree. I'm sure no one could think higher of Reid than I do.
That is the wrong question. Sure its not conservative but its useful. We ultimately are going to fund it and the rest of the government. I do think this does offer an opportunity for us to make a point by offering private funding to make sure kids affected don’t go without treatment. I’d be in favor of a bill that would offer volunteer direct funding of govt by citizens in event of shutdowns so that we could provide examples that the private citizen can and will help. The goal is to defeat Obamacare and win this battle. We have Harry Reid being a heartless fool and we need to capitalize on it. Democrats get away with pretending they feel your pain etc and GOP have an option to drive home the message that this is a lie that what they care about is CONTROL.
Harry Reid and his minions are killing funding for veterans, national guard, parks, cancer patients, and D.C. on CSPAN2 now.
Media will turn it into a celebration of Democrat compassion...
Attempting to exploit this makes the messenger just as guilty of what the left does - fabricating phony "scandals" by trying to create false outrage out of something the speaker never intended to say or didn't say at all.
We should leave this one alone. It isn't true, and isn't legitimate.
Nope There are many things that are "useful" that are beyond the legitimate scope of government. By dragging this in you validate all sorts of welfare.
So is Harry for or against the ‘stupid tax’ of medical devices? Forked tongued one is he...
Senate votes: “Die little girl, die!”
I admire Jesus Christ. Imagine Him, teaching on the Temple Mount. He was confronted by hyperventilating louts who wanted to trip Him up.
His approach was not to use the "Hey, so I guess YOU just really want kids to get cancer! Huh?! Well DO ya!?" line.
You know, I even take your point. From your question, it’s not really a truly conservative viewpoint.
But let’s also take every opportunity to point out that Harry Reid has no soul. No heart. No thought process that doesn’t involve his own personal advantage. He showed it for all the world to see and he should pay for it.
I sent Reid’s office an e-mail asking him why he hates children with cancer so much.
I just think that there are so many other examples of Reid's character (or lack thereof) that going down this one is nonproductive.
Could very well be but at the risk of sounding trite, this one is by far the best soundbite. When the other side fights that way, conservatives need to fight back hard.
You are confusing conservatism with libertarianism and anarchism. There are quite a few things conservatives want funded by the government. We are mainly for small efficient government. A government that does not run large annual deficits. And we have more compassion then the soulless left, because we do not let politics get in the way of our compassion. That is why we are beating the soulless and heartless Reid over the head with his very own words.
What a total load of nonsense. I refer you to the speech falsely attributed to davy crockett It's not yours to give Conservatives don't redistribute the hard earned money of others for unconstitutional whims. You probably thought that liberal Bush was conservative.
Davy Crockett ? What does he have to do with a Libertarian point of view ? They did not even exist back then. What you are describing is Libertarianism. I know. Consider myself a conservative-libertarian. What Libertarians would demand is that people donate to help get these kids cancer treatment. No tax support. Conservatives on the other hand, support taxation beyond what libertarians support (and all taxation is redistribution). Anarchists would just let the kids die.
Conservatives on the other hand, support taxation beyond what libertarians support
Skip the pompous lecturing on your ideas of what constitutes a conservative because what you're offering is simply your opinion.
Can give you specific examples if you like.
BTW - You sound just like Harry Reid. Calling conservatives anarchists. Must be a team player.
Show me where I said that, liar. I don't waste my time with liars.
