So dedicated is Harry Reid to the proliferation of Obamacare fairy dust that the Senator even chided a reporter who asked, “If you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?” she asked.
To which Reid callously replied, “Why would we want to do that?”
In other words, according to the Nevada Democrat, defending Barack Obama and his ‘signature’ achievement is more important than dealing with the plight of helpless children with cancer!
Reid has not always been such a reliable source of support for the US President. For example, in 2007 when then-President George W. Bush was pushing for a “surge” to bolster American forces in the Iraq war, Reid was a vocal opponent.
As reported, at the time (April 20, 2007):
WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday the war in Iraq is “lost,” triggering an angry backlash by Republicans, who said the top Democrat had turned his back on the troops.”
Given Reid’s fascination with surrender, perhaps it is time for the Senator to face current reality and admit the truth:
When it comes to Obamacare, Senator, this war is lost!
And for the sake of the American people and the Republic, that is a good thing!
