Harry Reid And The Big Reconciliation Lie

It’s just hard to imagine how such bald-faced liars continue to get “respect” from the mainstream propaganda machine.  I mean, even propagandists should be disgusted with a turd like Harry Reid.

At the health care summit – itself a big fat giant lie – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the following when Republican Senator Lamar Alexander pleaded with Reid not to destroy the American political system with reconciliation:

“Again, Lamar, you’re entitled to your opinion but not your own facts.  No one has said — I read what the president has online — no one has talked about reconciliation, but that’s what you folks have talked about, ever since that came out, as if it’s something that has never been done before.

Now, here’s the thing that makes Harry Reid such a disgusting little cockroach.  He’s calling Lamar Alexander out as a liar when Lamar is the one who is telling the truth and Harry Reid is the one who is knowingly lying.

I mean, damn, Harry, how about this from just five days before your “No one has talked about reconciliation” spewage?

Reid said that congressional Democrats would likely opt for a procedural tactic in the Senate allowing the upper chamber to make final changes to its healthcare bill with only a simple majority of senators, instead of the 60 it takes to normally end a filibuster. [Hint for the ignorant: Reid is talking about reconciliation – you know, the thing that Reid says “no one has talked about”]

“I’ve had many conversations this week with the president, his chief of staff, and Speaker Pelosi,” Reid said during an appearance Friday evening on “Face to Face with Jon Ralston” in Nevada. “And we’re really trying to move forward on this.”

The majority leader said that while Democrats have a number of options, they would likely use the budget reconciliation process to pass a series of fixes to the first healthcare bill passed by the Senate in November. These changes are needed to secure votes for passage of that original Senate bill in the House.

Here’s a nice short Youtube video that demonstrates that the top Democrat in the United States Senate is a pathological liar with neither shame nor conscience:

“Where’s Joe Wilson when you need him?” HotAir asks.

And, great oh-my-gosh, it turns out that the thing that Harry Reid says Democrats aren’t talking about is the very thing that Democrats are all over themselves talking about.  From Politico:

After a brief period of consultation following the White House health reform summit, congressional Democrats plan to begin making the case next week for a massive, Democrats-only health care plan, party strategists told POLITICO.

A Democratic official said the six-hour summit was expected to “give a face to gridlock, in the form of House and Senate Republicans.”

Democrats plan to begin rhetorical, and perhaps legislative, steps toward the Democrats-only, or reconciliation, process early next week, the strategists said.

And reconciliation is depicted as being at the very core of the Democrats’ strategy going forward according to a major Associated Press article.

You can understand why Harry Reid would lie about the Democrats’ next move on health care.  It is so vile, so extreme, so extreme – according to the Democrats’ own words about it – that it even makes the pile of stinking garbage that the Democrats have already accumulated (you know, like the Louisiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback) look tame in comparison.

I still remember Mary Landrieu shamelessly telling the public that she wasn’t a $100 million whore, but a $300 million whore.

If I were a drug dealing crime boss or a terrorist, I would want Democrats like Mary Landrieu and Ben Nelson on my jury.  I would love to have the type of people who will happily prostitute their votes for the right price.

If I was going to do something so despicable like Harry Reid is scheming to do, I’d lie about it, too.

Let’s see, how was it that Harry Reid put it when Republicans considered (but didn’t) using reconciliation?  That’s right.  He called it “the arrogance of power.” The arrogant, hypocrite turd.

And of course, if I was Harry Reid, I would scurry under the nearest crack the moment somebody turned the kitchen lights on.

    Michael, my husband says he is really proud of me. I haven’t hurled the remote control at our flat screen in rage at Reid and the rest of the stupid, lying HYPOCRITES aka LIBERALS!!

    They are fierce warriors and are out to destroy everything we hold dear….life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, prosperity etc.

    I know I am not alone. We are living in a nightmare with these lying, thieving THUGS in power. I DESPISE what they are doing.

    Michael, do you think they will succeed with this healthcare takeover?

    A lot of conservative talking heads are saying the Democrats don’t have enough votes – particularly in the House.

    I can only hope they’re right.

    The best thing that could happen for us politically is if the Democrats try to impose Obamacare via the nuclear option and fail. If that happens, they will look 1) like fascists who are hard-core hypocrite and hard-core totalitarian and 2) like really shockingly incompetent fascists who are utterly incapable of governing.

    The worst thing would be for the thing to get through.

    I’m not a “try it, I dare you!” conservative on this issue. I don’t want this terrible thing to pass. It’s not a political issue for me; it is life and death, including the dramatically-hastened death of this country, if it passes.

    We need to keep mobilizing and keep fighting. It’s up to us to make sure the Democrats in office understand how truly vile the American people think ObamaCare is.

  3. HL Says:

    We view it exactly the same way. It is life and death for America.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    I believe it’s more dangerous than other disastrous legislation such as cap-and-trade because it will be an entitlement – and entitlements are impossible to repeal.

    Take Medicare. On my view, it has been a terrible program. It now consists of a $74 trillion black hole of unfunded liabilities. It has been a massive government takeover of our health system and singlehandedly made health care more expensive because ALL medical rates today are based off of Medicare. Rather than allow the free market to come to some equilibrium, Medicare has imposed a bureaucrat’s failed solution on the market. It’s killing us.

    But that said, people are counting on it (including my own parents!!!), and people would suffer if you pulled the plug on it. We need to scale it back in a responsible way that doesn’t make the current generation of those already on it suffer. We need to gradually increase the age and decrease the benefits (which would require those who WILL retire in the FUTURE to purchase more supplemental insurance.

    We need LESS government health care, not MORE. But once the government gets its claws in something, it will tax, regulate, and “progressively” kill the thing by making it more expensive and less effective.

    No one in their right mind could see it any differently; and yet liberals see it in exactly the opposite way that any sane person would see it.
