Harry Reid: Puns & Passing the Buck


Whenever Reid appears, it is evident why the Congressional Democrats can’t effectively manage the Blue Dogs, communicate to insured Americans the bad deal they are currently getting, and execute an agenda all of them campaigned on for 2 years?

[Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)] accused the media of inflating the importance of an August finish.

“You folks have created the deadline,” Reid chided, asserting that President Obama’s original goal was simply to pass legislation by the end of the year.
[…] At a press conference with family physicians, Sens. Reid, Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) discussed the legislation in language liberally laced with medical metaphors.

“America’s had a check-up and the prognosis is not very promising,” Reid opened.

“You’ve heard the diagnosis,” warned Durbin, “the health care system is chronically ill.”
