Harry Reid finally sees the value of thinking before acting

This week U.S. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) defended a one-year delay in a crucial Obamacare mandate, saying “It is better to do this right than fast.” Good for Sen. Reid! It is good to see that Sen. Reid has learned from his mistakes and now agrees that it’s important to think before acting.

It’s been a tough journey for the Senator. It began back in 2009 with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid working with then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to ram Obamacare through Congress. Back then they were in such a hurry that Nancy Pelosi said “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it….” and Harry Reid, who was ramrodding Obamacare through the Senate side, compared opponents of Obamacare to opponents of emancipation because they dared to try to slow down the rushed Obamacare legislation.

Along the way, Sen. Reid has even agreed with fellow Democratic Sen. Max Baucus that Obamacare has the potential to be a “train wreck,” if not implemented properly.

    Of course, Republicans have no solution at all for the nation’s healthcare problem. Zip. Nada. Nothing.

    They simply don’t care if people can’t get the health care they need, or if they go bankrupt in the process. They don’t care.

    There is something seriously, fundamentally wrong with today’s Republicans. Who exactly are they working for?

    Scary Reid is about as trustworthy as Aesop’s fabled frog offering a mouse a complimentary ride across a stream.

    This man cares about me. I need someone to care. Thus, I excuse him any minor faults. He is looking out for me. Thanks, Harry.
