    The Washington Times ^ | Jan 13 | Charles Hurt
    Nobody in American history is more deserving to lie in state inside the Rotunda of the United States Capitol than former Sen. Harry Reid. He spent every day of his 35-year political career in Washington lying. Why shouldn’t he continue to do so now that he is dead? Big things. Little things. Irrelevant political things. Profound matters of life and death. Reid lied about everything. In 2003, Reid was among 29 Senate Democrats to vote for the war in Iraq. Just as soon as it became politically expedient, however, Reid abandoned the troops in battle — just in time for...

    Here are some of the Democrats most at risk if they vote for the bill. Mark Kelly — Arizona Kelly represents the same voters that Sinema does, and his head-to-head polling numbers are not promising. Early polls have Kelly leading between 4 and 9 points, never breaking above 44% of the vote. Arizona is considered a battleground state for 2022. Without Trump on the ticket, the winner of the crowded GOP primary has a great shot at victory. Kelly’s "aye" vote might be the nail in his coffin. Catherine Cortez Masto — Nevada Nevada is another state that Biden won...
