During the 2012 presidential campaign, Senate majority leader, Harry Ried, rather infamously accused the Republican nominee Mitt Romney of not paying any taxes for the previous ten years. This, of course, was based upon nothing. It was a shameless partisan smear that Reid has become famous for.
Reid was at it again this past week on the floor of the Senate essentially calling the tens of thousands upon tens of thousands of American who had lost their healthcare coverage, had lost their doctor, had been denied treatment under ObamaCare or had seen the premiums sky-rocket… calling them liars.
In Reid’s own words:
“Despite all that good news, there’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America,”
Unreal. Never seen anything like this in our life: the 2nd most powerful person of a major political party calling the citizens of this country liars.
The NRSC responded with this video…
… and we responded on our own via Twitter:
Got media bias?
Remember... it's for the children!
People unable to uncancel their ObamaCare plans:
Nothing is more comforting to a cancer patient than the uncertainty & bureaucracy of Øcare. Except maybe being called a liar by Harry Reid.— Lee Ritz, M.D. (@lee_ritz) February 28, 2014
Harry Reid, "a loathsome figure to be sure," is at it again practicing his own brand of McCarthyism. http://t.co/EHcrRqnoq7— Brit Hume (@brithume) February 27, 2014
Congratulations to the Senator from the great state of Nevada: there is no more loathsome and contemptible person on the American political scene than Harry Reid.
