According to Senator Harry Reid AKA Senator Weasel Dick, Ted Cruz and those like him are fanatics for respecting, and fighting for, the will of the people
WASHINGTON — The Republicans bent on defunding Obamacare or shutting down the government are “fanatics” with a “Thelma and Louise”-like mission to drive the nation off a cliff, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Monday.
Odd it is that Reid would use the Thelma and Louise driving off a cliff example. Odd because America faces a fiscal cliff, and it is Reid and HIS party that is driving that car over that cliff. And, Obamacare will, among other things, increase our time of departure for going over that cliff.
The federal government will run out of money after Sept. 30 if Congress does not act by then to authorize more spending. Rather than simply do that, the House of Representatives last week passed a bill that would keep federal offices running only if the Senate and White House agreed to defund the Affordable Care Act. Senate Democrats and President Barack Obama are refusing to give in to that demand.
So, let us be clear. The Democrats ignore not only the majority of Americans that do not want Obamacare, but also the fact a majority of Americans prefer defunding Obamacare even if it meant a government shutdown, a shutdown we would not have under the House bill.
“Are Republicans so intent on undermining both President Obama and his signature health care law that they’re willing to inflict severe damage to our economy in the process?” Reid said. “America will know exactly who to blame: Republican fanatics in the House and the Senate.”
“Two dozen Senate Republicans have spoken out against this foolhardy plan to drive the economy off the cliff — two dozen,” Reid added. “This ‘Thelma and Louise’ style just isn’t getting the attention of the American people in a positive tone. If Democrats don’t bow to every demand they [tea party Republicans] have, they want to go right over the cliff. Well, we’re not going to go with them.”
Hmm, think about this. Reid, and the president are undermining the will of the people, the same people they are SUPPOSED to serve. Yet, Reid considers House Republicans, Senators Cruz, Lee, Rubio, Paul, Cornyn and others fanatics? Sorry, but it is Reid and his ilk who are the fanatics here. the Republicans fighting to stop Obamacare are doing their jobs. They are obeying their constituents, and the Constitution. I pray every American realizes that it is the Democrats that are ignoring the people, everything Obamacare will mean will be the fault of the Democrats. Of course some Republicans will march along to get along, and I pray the people remember those sell outs too. Yes, Obamacare will be funded in the end. All I ask is that voters remember who fought FOR them, and who fought AGAINST them next November. If we are ever to repeal and replace Obamacare, it will start then, in that election. Any Republican worth half a damn needs to understand that a LOT of politicians will be fired next November, and by not fighting, they will be seen for what they are, unprincipled cowards.
