Sums up zeros regime perfectly
Just a guess...
This is an explicit admission that the job creation policies of the Democratic Party as implemented over the last 5 years have failed and have no promise of succeeding. Why will no Republican or Tea Party politician call them on this it should be shouted out day after day after day. Maybe it would finally sink through!
Keep talking, Harry...
I wonder. Is that saved or created unemployment Harry?
Oops! The cat’s out of the bag, eh Harry?
My guess is that the GOPee will embrace amnesty and destroy all hope of taking the Senate, maybe even keeping the house.
He said Obama has cut the deficit in half. Have I missed something?
Praying that I'm wrong.
On the same day worthless Harry was claiming that the unemployed helped the economy by spending their unemployment checks, Scumbag DeBlasio in NYC was calling “trickle Down” the greatest economic lie in history.
These mooks need to get together on their stories.
That’s very bold of you Dingy. Maybe it will be better this time.
Why do we have an emergency on a regular basis?
How about passing a budget so that thisw $#!t doesn’t happen on a regular basis?
The biggest crook on Capitol Hill has spoken!
My favorite Harry Reid quote is when Nancy Pelosi walked into his office and he screamed, “ I told you guys not to send in the old drunk hooker until after I’d talked to Pelosi!”
"Todays long-term unemployment rate is more than double and we fully support illegal immigration."
I thought Barack Obama had the economy in recovery, so there’s no need to even think about UE benefits anymore - can’t have it both ways, either there are new jobs or they’re not.
He may be spending a few days in the white house dungeon until he gets his mind straight.
Maybe that's the problem.
