Harry Reid: Paul Ryan budget creates 'Koch-topia'
Politico ^ | 04/01/2014 | By BURGESS EVERETT

Posted on 04/01/2014 10:39:57 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid preemptively slammed the budget proposal Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will release Tuesday, calling it a document written to pander to the Koch brothers and other billionaires.

“It’s a blueprint for a modern… how would we say this? Koch-topia. Yes, that’s it,” Reid said. “Call it whatever you want. We might as well call it the Koch budget because that’s what they’re doing, protecting the Koch brothers.”

Reid’s remarks mark the latest volley in Democrats’ mid-term election year strategy of attacking the Kochs repeatedly, hoping to fire up their liberal base and associate Republicans with the brothers in the minds of voters. And while a poll last week showed that most Americans don’t know who the Koch brothers are, 45 percent of self-identified liberals said they have a negative opinion of them.

Reid dared conservative outside groups to “fire away” at him for his fiery election-year attacks on the billionaire Koch brothers.

Speaking after the group American Encore spent $30,000 on Monday airing ads in Nevada dinging Reid for “attacking free speech,” the Senate majority leader launched a rebuttal aimed at Charles and David Koch, harshly criticizing their role in politics and influence among Republicans.

Reid called American Encore one of the Kochs’ “puppet organizations,” likening it to Americans for Prosperity, the Koch-backed group that’s poured millions in attack ads onto vulnerable Senate Democrats for their support of Obamacare and climate change stances.

Harry Reid.

Harry Reid.

Is that not the senile, crooked, loathsome POS that sometimes appears on my television screen when I accidentially dialed in the “Sewer Channel....er Senate Channel”?

Shove it up your smelly Obama, Whorehouse Harry. I eagerly await the opportunity to take a bodacious Obama on your slimy grave.

Why would I want to do that? I hope he keeps it up all the way to November.

Hey Harry, spouting this nonsense makes you sound like a fool and you’re too stupid to realize it.

So just keep it up Einstein.

Let’s jujitsu and use the Democrats obsession with Koch brothers for our advantage and against them.

Like when Harry Reid says this, we say something like: “you must be exhausted with the Koch’s running circles around your head”..

A little mockery would be good for Senator Reid.

This guy is the Senate majority leader. There is absolutely no hope for America unless the 17th Amendment is abolished and the 10th Amendment is strengthened.

Harry is obsessed with the Koch brothers. How does an old fart, senile Senator get away with targeting one family, who has done more to help the poor & sick than this old fool ever has (even with taxpayers money) is beyond me!

There must not be any way for old Harry Greed to profit from this bill. But I’m sure he could add an amendment for us all to pay for a bridge to some property he owns.

The Koch brothers live in that senile criminal's head. I suspect even the RATS are secretly glad his days are numbered. He's an embarrassment even to them.

Hey Harry, how did you amass a fortune of several million dollars on a United States Senate salary, huh? What a joke and fraud this guy is. It’s desperation time for the Democrats now so get ready for class, gender, and racial warfare on a huge scale from this point on until November. Dingy Harry is going to get more nastier and shrill. Good, let that fool go on and on. Americans are worried more about their pocketbooks than his class warfare rantings.

The Koch’s don’t enter into my daily thoughts, but they seem to rent space in these Democrat’s heads.

Well if it would end up protecting the Koch brothers, wouldn’t also end up protecting many more liberal socialist elitist billionaires? Why not call it Soros-topia? Oh yeah because Soros is Reids type of America hating liberal socialist elitist billionaire that happens to fund the demonrats in both legal and unethical illegal ways.

I honestly have to ask. Does Reid even know who the Koch brothers are and what their companies produce? I seriously doubt it. There are some seriously deranged and, dare I say, evil people in congress, but I do believe Harry Reid is the worst of the worst.

Look on the bright side, Harry. At least Paul Ryan is 100% on board with your program to grant illegal immigrants amnesty. Reid and Ryan have more in common than they (or their supporters) would like to believe.
