Tag: Harry Reid
By JGillman, Section News
Only the perpetually stupid could continue to ignore this.
The unapologetic praise for a system that holds no chance of meeting promises made and already broken, is continuing unabated. The use of the term Obamacare as an endearing term, instead of the official title "Affordable Care Act." Appropriately connecting the dots from Obamacare to Medicaid expansion; a feat that be performed only with enablers and collaborators in our State Senate and House. When the bleeding edge of the socialist/fascist movement in this country praises our governor for expanding welfare; a move that promises to explode in our face in 3 years time?
Yet losing the seat to a Democrat is the fear that would keep cowardly Republicans voting for Rick Snyder?
Could anyone remind us all here why his winning really matters again?

Carl Levin has a bridge to sell you over some swampland in Michigan.
In Mid-December, Senator Carl Levin posted a position piece supporting further battery technology spending by taxpayers in Michigan. He states:
In other words we have failed miserably in our efforts to date, and we should really double down.
"But now you're getting it. Reporters who visited the Michigan factory of the South Korean company LG Chem, which got $151 million in stimulus money to manufacture lithium-ion batteries, discovered workers sitting around playing Monopoly and poker. The employees said it wasn't their fault: "What do you do when there's no work?" "Sure why not follow THESE successes with additional money thrown around.
As far as going all-in with these schemes, one might better be served with the proverbial 'fool me once .." advice. Frankly, Senator Levin should take the advice given to Harry Reid by the weeper last night.
At least the recipient would be 'getting it' voluntarily.

Evidently, somehow the powers-that-be behind the curtain of a back-room discussion have managed to craft some sort of deal to stave off an alleged default. But first, let's watch Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) out-argue Senator John Kerry (D-MA) in a floor speech from last Saturday.

Recently many of you might have heard about the possibility of the NRA actually endorsing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid over the Republican (Tea Party) Candidate, Sharon Angle. Surprisingly, the rumor might have some weight to it, and even though Reid's overall record has been anti second amendment, they would still offer him as a possible candidate for their (sometimes) coveted approval.
A by-his-very-nature anti 2nd amendment guy over a NATURAL 2nd amendment candidate? They have a reason, but sadly they have quite contradictory reasoning to apply it.
Lets look at a local endorsement they had given.
In October 2008, Stupak received the endorsement of the NRA, which has repeatedly shown favoritism for entrenched politicians vs. their opposition candidates, and risking the "Ire" of the likely winning incumbents.
Remember this, as we read more... below the fold.
