Top Democrat denounces health care protests

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate’s most powerful Democrat on Thursday scolded health care protesters dogging his party’s lawmakers at local meetings, arguing that some critics on the political right have run out of ideas – and ditched their civic manners. Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada accused the protesters of trying to “sabotage” the democratic process.

A small group of lawmakers blocked out the fevered rhetoric and vowed to keep pursuing an elusive bipartisan deal on a broad remaking of the health care system. With encouragement from President Barack Obama and business leaders, the group reported progress on financing an overhaul. But as polls show Obama’s approach losing favor with voters – particularly independents – Democrats are talking more openly about the possibility of moving legislation without Republican support.

Energized conservative activists said they’ll keep up their fight against Obama’s effort. The president wants to use the government’s clout to subsidize coverage for millions now uninsured, regulate insurance companies more closely and attempt to slow the rise of medical costs. The protesters’ shouts and chants, captured on amateur video, went viral on the Internet.

The Republican Party says it’s not behind the protests, but Reid scoffed at the notion that the protesters reflect grass-roots sentiment. He held up a piece of artificial turf during a session with reporters.

I am going to say this as nicely as I possibly can. Harry Reid is a MORON. Apologies to ALL morons for lumping you in with Reid, but if I said what I really believe concerning Harry Reid, and what I really feel concerning Harry Reid, I might offend the delicate sensitivities of some readers.

Harry Reid has attached himself to a sinking ship. Obama, and nearly everything he wants to do to this nation and the American people is suddenly being challenged. Some challenges are even coming from those in his own party. Contrary to popular belief, not ALL Dems are total dumb-asses, some are really rather bright. They just can’t, or won’t give up on the name Democrat. And let’s face the honest truth, why would they want to be called a Republican? Not a dimes worth of difference in the parties or members anyway.

Apparently, Harry Reid thinks people are being PAID to express their dissatisfaction with the Obamanure administration. He scoffs at the notion that the protesters reflect grass-roots sentiment. I guess Reid can just scoff to his evil little hearts content. I know that here in MY part of Texas we have some serious grass roots movement stuff taking place, and to the best of MY knowledge, no one is being paid to attend or participate in ANY protest or gathering.

I hate to call Sen. Reid an Obama loving LIAR, but I just can’t help thinking that Reid is nothing more than an Obama loving LIAR! Oh, and did I mention MORON too

“These are nothing more than destructive efforts to interrupt a debate that we should have, and are having,” Reid said. “They are doing this because they don’t have any better ideas. They have no interest in letting the negotiators, even though few in number, negotiate. It’s really simple: they’re taking their cues from talk show hosts, Internet rumor-mongerers … and insurance rackets.”

Internet rumor-mongers maybe? I hate to be a spelling and grammar NAZI but it’s mongers Sen. Reid. I would have thought a distinguished Senator such as yourself would have known that. Guess not.
