Harry Reid Echoes Alan Grayson: GOP Wants Women to Not Have Health Care

 Harry Reid has transformed into even more of a joke than previously thought. The Nevada Republican scraped into re-election last year and is now making his farce of a career even more so. Believe it or not, when chosen to be the Senate Minority (back in 2004-2005) leader after Tom Daschle lost his seat, Reid was thought to be a 'moderate.'

Now, over 80 members of Congress have asked him to resign. His bully pulpit as leader of the Democrats in the Senate is weakened, and he remains one of the most unpopular figures in Nevada politics. Not bad for a guy who saw his son lose the race for Governor last year.

Reid has stuck his foot in his mouth before-- calling his victory last year "child's play" and mocking his opponent. He also infamously declared the War in Iraq lost on the Senate floor. He then denied ever saying it.

Now he's done it again, on his official Twitter account. He, like many Democrats, are trying to make political hay out of the budget deals going on in Congress. For one, the Republican attempt to avoid the government over borrowing and threatening a shutdown. Now, the Dems have tried the 'Republicans are anti-women' tack for decades now, but Reid takes it one step further.

Reid echoes former Congressman (and current disgrace) Alan Grayson, who once said that the Republican health care plan was for seniors to "die quickly."

 The full quote from the linked picture:

GOP wants to shut down our nation’s government because they want to make it harder for women to get the health services they need. 
 So.... the Republican Party wants to kill off the women voters that they're trying to get to... vote for them? Sounds like a pretty poor strategy in winning elections. But then again, what does Harry Reid know about that-- he almost lost to John Ensign!

So another brilliant move by the person who has overseen the Senate barely voting for ObamaCare last year and the Democrats losing 7 seats in 2010.

Reid is a disgrace. Let him resign-- and allow an adult to take the stage.
