Tough words.  I know.  We’re supposed to be moving beyond bitter partisan words. At least that’s what some liberals are saying. Others, are calling the Republican’s act of repealing Obamacare Hitler-light. But I’m not buying the pleasantries myself, so I’ll continue to be a bitter conservative. Sorry.

Okay, back to my orignal comment about Harry Reid. Okay, he’s not a idiot.  He’s a devoutly partisan liberal egotist. Ouch, this isn’t getting any better.

So, why all the nastiness? It’s simple. Harry Reid, as the Majority Leader in the Senate, has stated that he will not allow debate on the just passed repeal of Obamacare delivered by the House of Representatives. Why not allow debate? The Dems still have a majority. If by some miracle it were to pass the Senate, the President will veto it and it’s unlikely there would be a two-thirds majority in the Senate to overturn the veto. So why is Harry being so unfriendly? Read on.

There are 23 democrat Senate seats up for election in 2012. In order to pass the repeal of Obamacare, it would require 60 Senators to envoke cloture, the process that allows a vote to go forward and end any delaying tactic such as a filibuster. If half of those Senators agree to move forward with debate, and if only 4 of them agree to the repeal bill, it would pass. Whether Obama vetos or not, it would represent a major embarassment to both the Whitehouse and the Democratic party. More importantly, if a majority of both houses of Congress agree that Obamacare needs to be repealed, it becomes not only the will of the American people, who overwhelmingly want it repealed, but if the Congress agrees, it puts it up as a major issue in the 2012 Presidential Election.  Reid wants no part of that.

So Harry, you go ahead and thwart the will of the people. Prevent the representatives of the people from being heard. Put on that crown King Harry. Your days of running the Senate as your own domain, rather than that of the American people, are numbered.
