Here is Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calling all the Obamacare “horror stories untrue.”
And here is the same Senator Reid just weeks later claiming he never called actual Obamacare horror stories “lies.”
That’s right. Exactly four weeks after Reid gave a fallacious floor speech in which he condemned billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch and called all Obamacare horror stories “lies distorted by Republicans to grab headlines,” Reid denied ever saying it.
From Matthew Continetti:
In recent years Reid has declared an American war “lost” while our troops still fought overseas; praised President Obama for his “light” skin and “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one”; asserted falsely and without evidence that Mitt Romney had not paid any taxes for a decade; and said “Why would we want to do that?” when asked if he would fund cancer research during the government shutdown.
Now, with his majority in danger, his president unpopular, his floor agenda obstructed by members of his own caucus, Reid thrashes about uncontrollably. He calls Obamacare horror stories “untrue.” He says Obamacare numbers are not as high as projected because Americans “are not educated on how to use the Internet.” His Senate Majority PAC launches a $3 million ad campaign tying Republican candidates to two men most Americans have never heard of, two men who, funnily enough, are more popular than Reid.
Harry Reid is a former boxer. And at 74, he’s not the young man he once was. He’s getting up there in age, and maybe he took one shot too many to the face.
If America is witnessing the Nevada Democrat display early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, that’s one thing. But the more likely outcome here is that Harry Reid is a big fat lying liar who lies. And in either case, he should be removed from office before he further embarrasses himself, his state and, the rest of America.
