Reid: No bowing to ‘Tea Party anarchists’ on Obamacare
lasvegassun.com ^ | September 23, 2013 | Karoun Demirjian

Posted on 09/23/2013 12:55:21 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Sticks and stones may break bones, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just hopes his words are enough to get Republicans to back off Obamacare.

“We’re not going to bow to Tea Party anarchists who deny the mere fact that Obamacare is the law,” Reid said this morning.

That was just the start of it, though.

Reid used words like "fanatic" and "extremist" to describe Republicans threatening to hold up a budget until Congress votes to defund Obamacare and its exchanges, which open for enrollment in eight days.

“Are Republicans so intent on undermining President Obama and the signature health care law that they’re willing to inflict severe damage to our economy in the process?” Reid asked. “If Democrats don’t bow to every demand they have, we’re going to go right over the cliff...Americans will know exactly who to blame — Republican fanatics in the House and Senate.”

Reid was not directing his words at the entire GOP. He was more interested in pulling Republicans away from the Obamacare cliff by turning its members against each other.

“I see more of my moderate Republican colleagues stepping up to speak sense to an extremist element of their own party,” Reid said. “A few reasonable Republicans are wise enough to know that risking the nation’s economic recovery for the sake of a pyrrhic ideological victory would be another step toward a death knell for the Republican Party.”

“I say to the House and Senate Republicans who continue to deny reality...listen to the chorus all around you. Listen to what they’re saying,” Reid said. “Your conservative Senate colleagues urge you off this reckless course...What remains to be seen is whether my Republican colleagues on both sides of the capitol are wise enough to listen.”

If they want to stay where they are, they will listen to their constituents.

They are all REALLY, REALLY pissed that Cruz and Lee are making them actually work!

And Cruz has been a senator a short eight months. By the end of his first term, the senate will be torn asunder.

For shame, Whore House Harry.

As a Tea Party supporter, I’d bow to you.

But, I’ll be turned around, facing the other way, doing certain actions.

Some people would call it showing your sorry prune face the full moon.

And at no extra cost, I’ll f*rt in your general direction.

Which would provide you with roughly 10x the respect you deserve, you little piece of excrement.

“Are Republicans so intent on undermining President Obama and the signature health care law that they’re willing to inflict severe damage to our economy in the process?” Reid asked.

"Are Democrats so intent on destroying our economy that they will support a law that was shoved through against American wishes and is proving to be the most destructive economic tool the democrats have ever inflicted on this nation?"

The only anarchist here are Democrats who shoved this abomination down the throats of America and the Supreme Court traitors who unconstitutionally upheld it as law.

We The People did not authorize and have rejected Obamacare. And We The People will do everything in our power to remove it is illegitimate!

The muddled man from Nevada (I understand that his real home is a hotel suite in Washington D.C., but his constituents from Nevada keep electing him) is using the wrong phrase.
Anarchists do not want government of any kind. God wants people to have government, and so do I. We just don't want the current lawless government, It is run by power hungry bureaucrats that seek to enslave the people, and to apply different laws to themselves and the citizens. They trample on, and mock, the U.S. Constitution.
'Revolutionaries', or proponents of a smaller, limited (by the U.S. Constitution), government might be an applicable phrase - but not anarchists. However if you are a creature of the Washington D.C. behemoth, as is Mr. Reid, than anyone looking to restrict your power will appear to be an anarchist.

Interesting that Harry finds it necessary to employ Stalinist tactics to impose his Fascist agenda on the American public.

If Harry had any respect for the U.S. Constitution or the American people, he would find an intellectually honest approach to argue his position on the merits.

Anarchists? OK. This can be used. Time to adopt the tactics of those OWS anarchists the DOP is so fond of and Occupy Lafayette Park. Yup. First hype it up in press releases to the media. Say something really sexy that they just gotta send a crew over to film, such as “Anarchists Will be Occupying Lafayette Park” and other well-known landmarks. Then bring along the wife and kids and some coolers, and have a little picnic there. Then pack everything up, clean up afterwards like civilized people, only carry signs saying such things as “TEA Party Anarchy,” or for literarilly inclined TEA Partiers “Fall Apart. The Center Cannot Hold” or “Fanaticism TEA Party Style” and “Occupation TEA Party Style”. A few notes to Dingy Harry will also be useful, such as “Extreme Enough For You, Harry?”

Dred Scot was “the law of the lane”.

DOMA was “the law of the land”.

Not even those examples need be brought up.

Obamacare itself is being “waivered” as if it itself isn’t even the law, and by this administration!

Apparently Reid forgot that just because something used to be a law does not mean it stays that way. Congress makes laws, modifies laws, funds laws and obliterates prior laws. and it has made a few changes in laws since the first Congress met. Just because something is the law today does not mean it is a funded law tomorrow. Obamacare can become as robust as the .....say the border fence. Congress’ job is to obliterate putrifying laws and this one really stinks.

If Reid wants to cling to old laws let him bring back prohibition.

And I’ve been hearing it hourly on several local radio stations.

We CAN counter this kind of BS, but only if we ourselves are willing to use the same kind of terminology. We MUST take control of the language again, or we are doomed as a nation.
