The Demotion of Harry Reid
With but a day left until the Senate likely knows its next makeup, Harry Reid might just be readying himself for a drastic change in job requirements – and America waits with baited breath.
Under Leader Reid’s expert guidance, the Senate has taken on virtually no controversial legislation since Obamacare. Reid has done everything in his power to prevent Democrats from having to vote on contentious issues and has therefore left them looking like patsies for the President – voting with the President’s wishes up to 99% of the time.
Reid has been worrying about campaigning instead of governing for one very good, self-important reason – if he loses too many Senate seats, he loses his leadership position. So instead of working to do the will of the people, Harry has been working to do no harm to Democrat Senators. In the end, that might just cost them – and him – their positions.
Failing to pass a budget compromise since 2009 and doing little else but cower to the President’s demands, the Senate has been the obstacle that America resents. The House has pushed bill after bill to the Senate with Reid preventing anything requiring compromise to hit the Senate floor. It has all been Obama’s way or the highway.
XL pipeline, petroleum exports .. or even .. a BUDGET would have been great. Instead, the Senate has been largely allowed to only vote on approving (or else) the President’s nominees for lower court judge seats or Whitehouse administration positions.
Getting hyper-partisan Harry Reid out of the Senate offers America some hope that Congress will get some bills on to the President’s desk. Perhaps even some that might finally reverse the shrinking percentage of Americans in the workforce. Shrinking paychecks, higher grocery bills and huge jumps in Obamacare health insurance costs will not be missed either.
