  • In Picking “super Congress,” Harry Reid Favors Insiders

    It was a decisive victory for Washington insiders against the more principled progressive members of the Senate. Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) announced his three choices for the first-ever “super” committee that will draw up a plan for resolving the nation’s fiscal situation. Those Senate Democrats are Patty Murray (WA), Max Baucus (MT) and …

  • Great video by Harry Reid arguing against raising the debt ceiling(?!)

    Sen. Harry Reid made a great argument, in 2006, on why we must vote against raising the debt ceiling: “Most Americans know that increasing debt is the last thing we should be doing.” “Economists will tell you we should be reducing debt, not increasing it.” “We’re being asked to do what shouldn’t be asked of …

  • The PATRIOT Act Revisited

    Three provisions to the PATRIOT Act are due to expire at the end of this month. They are (courtesy of DownsizeDC.org): 1. Business Records: allows searches on your personal data without your knowledge if the FBI convinces a judge it is “relevant” to a terrorism investigation. The data could be computer-related, financial, medical, or even …

  • Reid May Lose Reelection

    Harry Reid is facing tough opposition back home. A recent poll showed 52% of Nevadans with an unfavorable opinion of Mr. Reid. He is trailing three potential Republican opponents, according to the poll commissioned by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, garnering just 40% against each. On Tuesday, political analyst Stuart Rothenberg moved Mr. Reid’s Nevada Senate …

  • Re: Cloture Vote on Obamacare

    I’m up late watching CNN’s surprisingly critical coverage of the party-line passage of the cloture bill on debate regarding the “health reform,” bill in the Senate. I think their ire may be coming for all the wrong reasons, (establishmentarian David Gergen is whining about how the lack of ‘bipartisanship’ in the “historic” bill defiles the nation state he worships) though I appreciate it nonetheless.  …

  • Conflict on the Hill: Healthcare

    Am I the only one who takes explicit joy in watching Joe Lieberman frustrate those mangey Democrats’ attempt to socialize our healthcare industry? I think it’s great, and I hope he keeps it up. While I certainly don’t agree with Lieberman’s fix, it’s nice to see more and more division within the Congress. It just …

  • Harry Reid Compares opponents of ObamaCare to Supporters of Slavery

    What classless race baiting… Is this dude really so desperate for attention, in light of the much more telegenic and articulate Obama running the show? Though my biggest beef with Mr. Reid is his personal sanctioning of mass murder, I can’t imagine why this “slavery” rhetoric is considered responsible and civil by the state-friendly media –that is, the same guys …

  • Nightly Roundup 11/11/09

    Harry Reid is working hard to muscle ObamaCare through the Senate. The AP reports on Rand Paul’s early promise in the KY senate race.  However, a weakening dollar and rising oil prices point to additional current inflation-related problems. Walter Block is fighting diverso-fascism, and in style. Good for Michele Bachmann for “moving around” the spineless GOP leadership in …
