    The Hill ^ | 07/15/14 | Alexander Bolton
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday asserted the southern border is secure despite the massive surge of illegal minors from Central America that has overwhelmed federal agencies. "The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.” Reid said lawmakers need to worry less about border security and focus instead on President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to help process the tens of thousands of children from Honduras, Guatemala...

  • Dems struggle to show anti-Koch amendment is 'reasonable'

    While much of Washington grapples with international crises, chronic economic troubles, and upcoming midterm elections, Senate Democrats are steadily pushing forward with what they hope will become the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The proposed amendment would give Congress authority to regulate every dollar raised, and every dollar spent, by every federal campaign and candidate in the country. It would give state legislatures the power to do the same with state races. Framed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as a response to campaign spending by the conservative billionaire Koch brothers, the proposed amendment, written by Democratic Senators...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he won't attend a Washington Redskins home game until the football team changes its controversial name. In a letter late last week to the team's president, Reid called the Redskins name a racial slur that disparages the American people. The Nevada Democrat, who said he represents 27 tribes in his state, rejected Bruce Allen's invitation to a Redskins home game until the team does "the right thing" and changes its name.

    The complete lack of curiosity by Democrats and the main stream media regarding the Benghazi attack is extremely suspicious. If there was no negligence, Democrats would have no problem going forward with outside investigations. When Senator Reid references an investigation by the State Department investigating itself and finding no wrong doing it is laughable. We are talking about a department that lost $6 BILLION dollars recently investigating itself. There must be an investigation from OUTSIDE the Obama Executive Branch into this scandal. As with Watergate, it is not just the negligence that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, it...

    Don’t expect Harry Reid to launch a tirade against Nevada businessman Sheldon Adelson anytime soon. Speaking with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, the Senate majority leader explained why he targets the Koch brothers exclusively while leaving other wealthy donors for both parties out of his senate-floor criticisms. “They are in it to make money,” Reid said. “That’s their whole goal here: To add zeros to their billions.” When pressed why Adelson gets a pass, Reid got very defensive, pointing to his personal relationship with the magnate. “I know Sheldon Adelson — he’s not in this for money,” he said “He’s in it...

    Reid: Kochs 'main cause' of climate change By: Burgess Everett May 7, 2014 10:37 AM EDT Charles and David Koch are one of the “main causes” of climate change, charged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the Senate floor. “While the Koch brothers admit to not being experts on the matter, these billionaire oil tycoons are certainly… experts at contributing to climate change. That’s what they do very well. They are one of the main causes of this. Not a cause, the main cause,” Reid said. Now in his fifth month of flogging the billionaire conservative benefactors on the Senate...

    Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid today released the following statement after Speaker Boehner announced that House Republicans will form a new special committee on Benghazi. “Republicans are showing yet again that they have nothing to offer the middle class. Republicans care more about defending billionaires like the Koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or ensuring women receive equal pay for equal work.“There have already been multiple investigations into this issue and an independent Accountability Review Board is mandated under current law. For Republicans to  waste the American people’s time...

    Harry Reid did it again. The Senate majority leader who called President Bush a “loser” and a “liar,” declared former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan a “political hack” and asserted that all Obamacare horror stories are “untrue” has now called Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters “domestic terrorists.” The comparison is as noxious as it is absurd. Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was a domestic terrorist. The Unabomber was a domestic terrorist. Centennial Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph was a domestic terrorist. To equate Bundy and his supporters with these murderers is, quite simply, appalling. It was the federal...

    The Right Scoop ^ | 4/18/2014 | Unattributed
    Earlier today Harry Reid was asked to explain why he called the supporters of Cliven Bundy domestic terrorists. He said the following: Bundy doesn’t believe that the American government is valid, he believes that the United States is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t follow the law. He doesn’t pay his fees. And if anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed — 600 people came in, armed. They had practiced, they had maneuvered, they knew what they were doing. They...

    U.S. Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday called supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” because they defended him against a Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup with guns and put their children in harm’s way. “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said during an appearance at a Las Vegas Review-Journal “Hashtags & Headlines” event at the Paris. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”

    Money causes corruption in politics the way guns cause crime and cake causes obesity. Money isn’t corrupt, it’s just money; politicians taking money in exchange for favors is corrupt. Rewarding donors for their support is corrupt: See Solyndra for an example. But Democrats, the political party that raised and spent a billion dollars in the last two presidential elections, want people to think that two brothers, Charles and David Koch, are attempting to buy Congress. Sadly, with the media on their side and their voters’ serial incuriosity on matters of truth, many believe it. No one has been more vocal...

    National Journal ^ | April 9, 2014 | Shane Goldmacher
    On Feb. 26, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor and declared that billionaire Republican businessmen Charles and David Koch were "un-American." He's barely been able to stop talking about the "Koch brothers" ever since. On March 4, Reid declared that Senate Republicans were "addicted to Koch." On March 13, Reid mentioned the "Koch brothers" in a floor speech 25 times. This week, he said Republicans should wear Koch insignia on their suits—like NASCAR drivers. It's all part of Reid and the Democrats' calculated efforts to summon a suitable villain in 2014. Reid believes that the Kochs,...

    Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement on the March employment report. According to the Labor Department, the economy added 192,000 jobs in March, while the unemployment rate remains unchanged at 6.7 percent. The department also revised up the figures for February, from 165,000 to 197,000, and private employment levels surpassed for the first time the pre-recession peak.“This continued job growth is encouraging, but we need to do more to ensure that everyone in Nevada and across the country has a fair shot at the American Dream. Democrats have proposed common-sense policies to ensure that women...

    Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid's website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don't pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White...

    When Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., pointed out that the majority of cancer centers in the country aren't covered under Obamacare while arguing that the law's problems go beyond early website issues, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., dismissed the critique as too "in the weeds." Coburn, a medical doctor battling cancer, panned the coverage offered to cancer patients. "Nineteen of the cancer centers in this country, only five are covered under Obamacare," he told the Washington Examiner Tuesday, a data point he attributed to the low payments the Affordable Care Act provides for those treatments. "You know, it's a market,...

    On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who is under fire for spending at least $31,000 in campaign funds to buy jewelry from his granddaughter, asked his supporters to send him campaign donations because former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin berated him. "Sarah Palin berated me for calling out the Koch Brothers in their attempt to buy control of the U.S. Senate," he writes in an e-mail sent a day before the end of the first fundraising quarter.

    We already knew that Harry Reid was a pretty generous grandpa -- what with his paying his granddaughter $17,000 in campaign funds, purportedly for gifts for his donors. But now we're learning that he was even more generous than we knew: He actually paid "Ryan Elisabeth" (Reid) almost twice that amount -- $31,000. Now you'd think a guy who's just trying to be nice to his granddaughter wouldn't be so testy when the press asks him about it, but you'd be wrong: Harry Reid Gets Testy With Reporter Asking About FEC Probe: "Read My Statement"
