Getting ANY bill through Harry Reid is like trying to push a watermelon through
a straw. The man WILL NOT compromise WILL NOT talk WILL NOT negotiate WILL NOT
even bring to a vote anything except it is written by the most radical left part
of the democrat party. This little unscrupulous weasel of man has been nothing
but a road block to jobs to morality to reason and as long as he holds the post
of president of the senate congress will forever be a bad joke. I think
that's pretty much it. In the mean time millions of Americans are suffering
needlessly. What a sad chapter in American history this past 5 years has been.
This much i do know - I have family in Las Vegas and the LDS community there is
mortified and embarrassed by this corrupt little scaly-wag. According to them,
the ONLY way he continues to get elected is because of the casinos most of which
have mountains of money and influence as well as close ties to organized crime.
The man gives them anything and everything they want - basically they own him.
The Senate voted on House proposals. The House simply changed House rules to
prevent a vote on the Senate bill. The House and Senate were at an
impasse on the night of Sept. 30. The House's most-recent bill, eliminating
health insurance subsidies for Congress members and their staffs, was rejected
by vote in the Senate. The 'clean' Senate spending bill was back in
the House's court. Next, House Republicans would
"insist" on their latest spending bill, including the anti-Obamacare
provision, and request a conference with the Senate to resolve the two
chambers' differences.Under normal House rules, according to House
Democrats, once that bill had been rejected again by the Senate, then ANY member
of the House could have made a motion to vote on the Senate's bill. Such a
motion would have been what is called "privileged" and entitled to a
vote of the full House.But the House Rules Committee voted the night
of Sept. 30 to change a House rule for this specific bill. They added language
dictating that any motion "may be offered ONLY by the majority Leader or his
harry, nancy, barbara, chucky,charlie, diane and barry. best and brightest
america has to offer.........what a country.
Well, patriot, no doubt you have insights I lack. But I'm
still willing to say that the reason Harry Reid got re-elected is the Nevada
Republicans ran Sharon Angle (if I have her name right) and her minister started
a campaign of Mormon-bashing because Harry is LDS. That had a boomerang effect
and cost her the election. If they had run anyone with a pulse and a decent
campaign Harry would be sitting in Lighthouse, NV writing his memoirs about his
time in the US Congress. Instead, he's giving the country and the world
grief. Sadly he's not above name-calling or getting the facts straight,
either as witnessed in the way he went after Mitt's taxes. He is who he is
and Nevada elected him. Notice how Mitt's religion was a
stumbling block by the liberal media, but for Harry it's a straight pass?
with Utah's mike lee in there, it'll be a waste of time, there's
no chance unless the more adult senators lock lee and cruz out. they're
"unscrupulous weasel of man""corrupt little scaly-wag."Name-calling isn't my thing but I'm pretty sure if I referred
to Mike Lee or any Republican esp Mormon, using those terms my comment
wouldn't get posted. If DN wants to let name-calling slide that is fine by
me, but the rules should at least be equitably applied.
Re: Patriot "This little unscrupulous weasel of man ..." I didn't
think the D-News allowed incendiary comments like this. My opinion of Reid is a
whole lot more positive. I very much prefer him to the baby-faced Mike Lee (is
it ok to say this?).
This is exactly why someone without any real world experience should never be
elected President. Obama still has no clue that the best way to get anything
accomplished in Washington is thru the power of negotiation. So to the detriment
of the country, he still refuses to do so. Sad and very lacking.
535 leaders in Washington DC can dictate the lives of 300 million.Worfs formula:* President serves three years, and everyone else
two. This is a service, and not a career.* Only those with a HS degree,
and not on welfare can vote.Wow! We'd have a better country if
this was done.
