Harry Reid reaction to Benghazi select committee: KOCH
Yep, he did it again.
After House speaker John Boehner announced plans Friday to establish a select committee on Benghazi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid responded with the following statement:
“Republicans are showing yet again that they have nothing to offer the middle class. Republicans care more about defending billionaires like the Koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or ensuring women receive equal pay for equal work.
“There have already been multiple investigations into this issue and an independent Accountability Review Board is mandated under current law. For Republicans to waste the American people’s time and money staging a partisan political circus instead of focusing on the middle class is simply a bad decision. While Republicans try to gin up yet another political food fight, Senate Democrats will remain focused on fostering economic growth for all hard-working Americans.”
And it only took him two sentences before he launched into #Kochspiracy mode.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Harry Reid has developed paranoid delusions directly related to his “Koch” induced psychosis.
Harry “Grandpa Simpson” Reid…
“…Senate Democrats will remain focused on fostering economic growth for all hard-working Americans.”
Please, please, please… No more.
After the last five years, more “economic growth” like we’ve had would just about drive the last nail in America’s coffin.
If the republicans refuse to run a serious candidate against him in ’16, Robert Byrd’s record may be surpassed. The last two elections were gifts to the old crook.
Mr. Reid, Republicans also care about giving politicians their dues when they allow Americans to die over seas…
Mr. Reid, use your last ounce of decency, if you still have it, and retire.
We, the middle class, are pissed at Republicans, but not for the reasons you pretend to believe. It’s the same reasons why we are double-pissed and tired of you POS spenders of somebody else’s money, violators of the US Constitution, traitors to the American People, A.K.A Democrats.
Get your hand out of my pocket !!!!
Reid? Decency? Surely you jest!
Hmmm … maybe if the Democrats stop focusing on “fostering economic growth”, we’ll finally have some. Meanwhile the Dems can devote their focus to more important things, like fostering Harry Reid’s economic growth.
The Democrat strategy is to denigrate individual dignity (i.e. “diversity”), devalue human life (i.e. abortion/murder), displace Americans (i.e. “dream act”), and devalue capital and labor by arbitrarily raising minimum wage and incurring trillions of dollars in debt. He supports health care “reform”, which addresses neither progressive inflation nor availability nor a separation of productive and dependent compensation. He supports “green” technology, and selective treatment under the guise of “environmentalism”, where it is not renewable (e.g only the driver is), and is disruptive of human, animal, and plant ecosystems (e.g. solar ovens, windmill gauntlets). He supports welfare because left-wing elite (aka “1%”) are incapable of fully financing, unwilling to fully subsidize, their base, which faces structural disparities in high density population centers. Reid wants to eat his cake and have it, too.
That said, if Republicans want national office, and control of the executive, then they need to support and grow their base (i.e. Christian in character and middle class), and address problems (e.g. structural disparity, mass emigration from alien nations), which may not be of their own making, and others which are an outcome of their policies.
We should begin taking to microphones to ask how Harry Reid can afford to live in a luxury hotel and how he made millions and how his children got rich.
Hit him every day for corruption from now until he stops slandering people from behind the shield of Senate immunity.
Love Reid’s sudden concern about wasting taxpayer money. This is the same corrupt fraud who time and time again has blocked Senate votes on House bills to force the Treasury to stop paying tens of billions of taxpayer dollars every year in “tax credits” (most of which are phony) to illegal aliens.
Is there any way to make that man take a mental competency test?
Somebody is quite concerned about his job as Senate Majority Leader. He’s nothing without it, a bloviating fool just as Pelosi has been rendered, and so, he has nothing to lose. So, because he commands TV cameras and microphones whenever he wishes them, because he’s Majority Leader, and because he was likely a snake long before politics, Harry Reid has accepted the role of Democrat Party lightning rod, tasked with launching all the dirty, reprehensible stunts, just like he did for Obama against Romney.
Since starting in the Senate Harry Reid’s net worth has increased to around $5-6 million from $1+ million. Do senators make a million dollars a year? Isn’t the senate leadership salary amount around $194k plus perks and fed insurance?
I owuld guess that insider trading might make it possible for a person to accrue wealth quickly. Or luck? Or?
Does hypocrisy make a person wealthy? Hmmm.
I believe that any time a Democrat utters the word “Koch,” we should correct him to “Evil Koch Brothers.” Mockery hath its charms.
I doubt anyone is really listening to Reid except as a source of amusement. These “speeches” are being made after the Senate is adjourned and may provide a tiny bit of red meat to the partisans, but very little of that even.
