Just when we thought Harry Reid couldn’t stoop any lower, he manages to do it. We’d note that we think Harry has ethics and honest of a sewer rat, but we wouldn’t want to insult poor sewer rats with the comparison.
Here’s Harry on the floor of the US Senate calling the cancer patients whose medicine has been cut off by ObamaCare liars. He’s calling people whose insurance premiums have gone up by $700 for worse coverage than they had, liars.
Who is Harry blaming all these lies on? Well, the Koch Brothers of course.
We were going to dissect Harry’s comments but we decided to let a spokesman for the Kochs do it, here’s the statement by Philip Ellender, Koch Companies Public Sector, LLC.
“We are disappointed, but not surprised, that Senate Majority Leader Reid has once again falsely attacked Charles Koch and David Koch today on the Senate floor. The Democrats in general and Senator Reid in particular have targeted Charles Koch and David Koch and tried to silence their disagreement on important public policy issues since 2010, using references to the IRS on occasion to do so. Senator Reid’s attack today—his third against Koch since Jan. 30th—is particularly troubling because he appears to reference a television advertisement produced by Americans for Prosperity in which a Michigan woman suffering from leukemia shared her experiences under Obamacare. While Charles Koch and David Koch were not responsible for the advertisement in question, we believe it is disgraceful that Senator Reid and his fellow Democrats are attacking a cancer victim as part of their campaign against Charles Koch and David Koch.”
We sincerely hope that some US Senator will take the bull by the horns and find the people in the Americans for Prosperity commercials, get an affidavit attesting to the truth of their statements and take to the Senate floor with a censure resolution for Harry.
