Skip to comments.Reid again attacks Koch brothers (& climate change deniers)
Posted on 03/11/2014 4:18:39 PM PDT by Libloather
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) used an all-night climate change campaign in the Senate to once again bash Charles and David Koch.
It's time to stop acting like those who ignore this crisis the oil baron Koch brothers and their allies in Congress have a valid point of view, Reid said Monday evening. But despite overwhelming scientific evidence and overwhelming public opinion, climate change deniers still exist. They exist in this country and in this Congress.
Sens. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) are leading an all-night Senate session to discuss the importance of climate change. More than 20 other Democrats participated right off the bat, including members of leadership.
Recently, Reid has increased his attacks against the Koch brothers, accusing them of trying to buy American elections for Tea Party candidates with the billions theyve made from oil.
Reid said its time the United States increase its use of renewable energy sources and stop using fossil fuels.
We have the ability to reduce our reliance on oil and other fossil fuels, increase our production of clean energy and create good-paying jobs that can never be outsourced, Reid said.

One without you would be a good start.
Surely, Reid knows that he is telling a huge lie to the public. Why is he doing that?
Climate control - 72 degrees forever!
Levin ripped him and the envirowackos over this today.
“Surely, Reid knows that he is telling a huge lie to the public. Why is he doing that?”
Is that a serious question? Reid is Bre’r Rabbit and lies are the briar patch.
create good-paying jobs that can never be outsourced, Reid said.
Harry is talking about being Senate Majority Leader...
I remember a bunch of ‘world leaders’ and politicians determining something about the heliocentric theory...
According to tyrants like Reid, it is perfectly fine for the government to steal money from people and use it to promote Obamacare, but it’s somehow corrupt for people to spend their OWN money opposing Obamacare.
Commies gotta lie!
Because Big Media will report it as the truth and the LIVs will believe it.
This all-night show is beyond pathetic. The lib radicals are so desperate for something to do that will connect with their voters and keep the attention off of the Obamacare horror story -— we have insane crap like this.
Sounds suspiciously like Stalin denouncing Trotsky.
Tom Steyer has said he is going to donate 100 million to get AGW candidates elected. That what this all nighter was about. Trying to get that money. Reid blasting the Kochs at this particular event is as hypocritical as these a$$hole’s carbon footprint.
C’mon, America! We haven’t completely destroyed the economy! We can finish this job! Yes we can!
Hey, that's a great idea. I wonder if we can talk them into it.
I thought Reid was the Easter Bunny and lies were his eggs?
How can he continue to say things like this(slander) about private citizens? Seems to me the Koch brothers could bring a lawsuit to shut the little punk up.
I admire one thing about Reid, he uses his position to attack Republicans. He doesn’t attack Democrat voters. He caters to them.
Reid just said the Koch brothers have no right to free speech, clear as a bell. Two guys, Charles and David Koch, don't have a valid point of view. I bet they don't sit down and be quiet.
Can we start some kind of pac to destroy Reid? Call it the JusticePAC.
Yeah, I yearn to have a Senate leader that doesn't hate our guts. How nice it would be....
Reid has been really whacked out lately. He blamed Rep’s and now the Koch brothers. Hell, there are at least 50-60 plus DEM contributors bigger/deeper pockets then the brothers.
Didn’t Hemingway write a book about Harry Reid mistakenly drinking a urine sample.........THE OLD MAN AND THE PEE?
If I had the kind of money the Kock brothers have and Reid was slandering me, I would make his life a living hell.
I was thinking more like Mao initiating "the cultural revolution."
And recall, that was his attempt to "save face" for "the Great Leap Forward."
It’s his only retort to the ads AFP is running against the demon rats that rammed thru obamacare.
He can’t use facts to battle the ads because the facts only hurt his case.
So the weasel resorts to telling lies in the well of the Senate b/c he knows he is immune from being sued while running his mouth there
This theater has become so absurd, we now have an all night spectacle of the Democrats protesting against themselves for not passing legislation that has not been written.
They are, the AFP ads are going to cost him themajority leader spot. He is scared. .hence the lies he is spewing!
Despite overwhelming scientific evidence that climate change is caused by the Sun and not mankind, Reid continues to spout utter nonsense.
A good thing about science is that it is true whether or not you believe it, regardless of "overwhelming public opinion."
Reid is good at name calling and blaming others for his stupidity. He is a Democrat.
Reid is protected from any and all slanders and libel on the floor of the senate. He grabs the headline “EVYIL KOCH BROTHERS” then back-peddles in some Searchlight Nevada paper “well, I’m not sure what I said was true or not.”
Reid is a disgusting treacherous evil little man. How stupid are the people in Nevada?
I wish his balls would drop so he can get rid of his wee wee voice.
a little late but here:
donors by party....
