“Republicans are again playing politics with our national security. Today they blocked the Senate from debating a bill that would give our troops the resources they need to keep America safe – stopping not only funding for combat vehicles and bulletproof vests or measures to improve our military’s readiness, but even a well-earned pay raise to help our troops and their families make ends meet.
“I am disappointed that my Republican colleagues put partisan politics ahead of the best interests of the men and women who courageously defend our nation. Democrats will continue to fight for our troops and will work to ensure that our troops have the resources they need to do their jobs.”
Obviously Mr. Reid is either completely unaware that his amendment sunk the bill, or he's a lair. Or both. He is also clearly unaware that some Democrats, as well as Republicans, voted the bill down. But hey, what are facts to a guy with no shame?
"While some may cheer a bad economy in an effort to score cheap political points, Nevadans are fighters who have no patience for that. I will keep fighting with them to create jobs and get our economy back on track, and I won't stop until every Nevadan who wants a job has one."Reid's foolishness is all over his site. Look at his "Press Release" section. There are hundreds of articles on the tremendous amount of money he has given away.
With any luck, this man will be out on his butt come November.
