I have to hand it to Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). That Democrats like him use the race card whenever their political campaigns get tough can be expected. But who knew that he would find a way to use the race card over efforts to keep the government from taking over a sixth of the private sector economy with his government run health care turned health insurance plan?
The guy is a disgrace for a politician, let alone as the leader of the Senate. And to try comparing opponents of this government takeover to those who opposed the abolition of slavery is preposterous. On the contrary, opponents of this government takeover want to preserve that freedom for all people.
Let me remind Harry Reid of some historical facts. It was Republican Abraham Lincoln that fought for the abolition of slavery and got it. And 100 years later it was Republicans that carried the Civil Rights Act of 1964, where most of the opposition to the Civil Rights Act came from Democrats, including Al Gore Sr.
All of which makes Harry Reid look like a blooming idiot in every one’s mind but the media and others in his party. I hope I’m wrong about this, but you can expect them to circle the wagons around him.
