Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Exempts His Staff from Effects of Obamacare – CNN … “Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare’s architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law’s new exchanges. … In September, Reid told reporters, ‘Let’s stop these really juvenile political games — the one dealing with health care for senators and House members and our staff. We are going to be part of exchanges, that’s what the law says and we’ll be part of that.’”
“In the charged atmosphere surrounding Obamacare, Reid’s decision only gives Republicans more ammo to attack Democrats already suffering politically from the law’s botched rollout. ‘I’m sure that regular Americans who just lost their insurance will feel comforted to know that Senator Reid’s staff gets to keep their government plan,’ a senior GOP Senate aide said.”
COMMENT: More Hypocrisy! Another lie and untruth from one of the Democrat’s main architects of Obamacare.
Obama’s ‘Stubbornness’ Destroying the Presidency – Newsmax … “President Barack Obama is afflicted by a ‘stubbornness’ that is destroying the presidency as well as the Democratic Party, says Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard. It is a particular type of stubbornness and it’s an ideological stubbornness. I mean just think of the economy . . . We know we have the slowest economic recovery in memory.”
“People dropping out of the economy by the millions, low, slow growth, high joblessness, and yet he’s sticking to the same old stuff. He’s stubborn in the sense of there being more than just a slow learner, he’s a non-learner and that’s quite unique.” … ‘You would think somebody for political purposes would say, wait a minute this isn’t working and I’m harming myself and my presidency and my party, and those who are going to be running for election say in 2014. And yet nothing happens,’ he said.”
