Sen. Harry Reid ignores history, blasts opponents December 8, 2009

From a FoxNews.com report:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his GOP-blasting rhetoric to a new level Monday, comparing Republicans who oppose health care reform to lawmakers who clung to the institution of slavery more than a century ago. 

The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women’s suffrage and the civil rights movement — even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery.

As his popularity in his home district plummets, maybe Senator Reid thinks the way to rally the actual majority of Americans that oppose this particular Health Care Reform bill (H.R. 3590) is to insult them. Good luck with that Senator.

Here is the video:

Here’s a flashback to a time when Harry Reid thought taxes were optional in America:
