Harry Reid, anarchist extraordinaire, comes up short on upholding laws of the land

Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) appears obsessed with “anarchists” of late, resorting to name Anarchy symbol [Wikipedia: Linuxerist, Froztbyte, Arcy]calling over what amounts to a disagreement on public policy. While Reid should not be surprised that government reformers, tea party types and others opposed to socialism do not like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), a personal attack on his opposition suggests Reid is clueless on several points.

Reid is in fact an anarchist. How can I say that credibly?

If Obamacare stands or fails, Republicans will win either way

Harry Reid loves Obamacare as long as it doesn't apply fully to himself or to his home state. Or his labor cronies. And select corporations.Most media right now are following the meme set up by Democrats. Blame any government shutdown on Republicans.

Republicans have tried dozens of times to stop the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act commonly called Obamacare. The U.S. House controlled by Republicans voted on Friday to fund government spending until December, but they stripped out funding for Obamacare.

Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid said:

"Republicans are simply postponing for a few days the inevitable choice they must face: pass a clean bill to fund the government, or force a shutdown. I have said it before but it seems to bear repeating: the Senate will not pass any bill that defunds or delays Obamacare.”

What Harry left out—Dems have already both defunded and delayed Obamacare.

Sen. Majority Leader Reid wants single-payer healthcare system despite multi-state failures

Sen. Harry Reid has pushed for single-payer healthcare via Obamacare. (Snip: C-SPAN)Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) declared ObamaCare (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) “a step in the right direction” and by “direction” Reid meant single payer healthcare.

Reid and other Democrats who place ideology above common sense want such a system despite the fact that states have failed in their attempts to achieve ever-elusive universal coverage.

Sen. Paul says no to immigration bill as security flaws, pork surface

Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) touted a billboard thanking him for what amounts to tourism pork for Nevada. (Photo: Harry Reid/U.S. Senate)Exactly like ObamaCare, the latest version of the Senate’s wannabe immigration bill will do nothing to solve a problem most Americans agree needs to be solved.

Some senators are speaking out against the bill, but others, like Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) are pushing the bill partly because it contains pork designated for his home state.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will vote ‘no’ on S. 744, the ‘Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.’

Reid nixes border security for immigration bill despite rise in OTMs at southern border

Politicians refused to uphold the legal commitments in the 1986 Amnesty bill. (Snip: U.S. Government/LOC)If you’re well versed on immigration matters past and present, you’re keenly aware that after the passage of the Immigration Reform and Control Act in 1986, the U.S. government refused to uphold a legal commitment to secure the border. It appears that will not change if a new immigration bill makes its way through both the U.S. House and Senate.

ObamaCare Primer: An underfunded ‘train wreck’ with Harry Reid driving the engine

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act otherwise known as ObamaCare has earned a new name from key Democrats—“train wreck.”

Photo: Deborah Cartagena/CDCSen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Obama’s captain in ramrodding the bill, and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), commander of the reconciliation that stuck everyday Americans with one of the most poorly written, lobbyist-friendly bills in our history, both used the “train wreck” metaphor to describe a bill the Democrat Party promoted as though it was the second coming of Jesus or Pachamama, depending on your spiritual bent.

Thing is, that wrecked train had both Reid and Baucus at the wheel. And now in his customary deceptive manner, Reid is blaming Republicans.

Potential gift to GOP and the public: Reid seeks exemptions for ObamaCare

Even the politicos who passed the ObamaCare Tax Bill, presented under the misleading, ridiculous title the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, apparently don’t want the bill messing up their own healthcare and wallets.

Senate Democrats' budget: $5.2 trillion in additional debt

Republicans' House budget isn't perfect, but it is far more practical than the Democrats' Senate fantasy. (Graph: U.S. Government)Democrats in the U.S. Senate must have finally read their job descriptions, having passed their first budget since 2009. House Republicans have a different budget.

The Dem budget is nothing more than an exercise in futility, growing U.S. debt by more than $5 trillion.

Mr. President, was it lonely on the administration side of the Fiscal Cliff bargaining table?

By Wendy N. Powell

President Barack Obama allegedly won the biggest financial challenge of his political career, or did he? The post mortem reveals troubling circumstances yet to come. The increases in taxes will affect all Americans and potentially trigger a new recession with all effects not yet known.
