And here it is... ..."Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) asked why Senate Democrats would want to fund the National Institutes of Health to “help one child who has cancer” Wednesday when asked that question by CNN reporter Dana Bash.
DANA BASH: You all talked about children with cancer unable to go to clinical trials. The House is presumably going to pass a bill that funds at least the NIH. Given what you’ve said, will you at least pass that? And if not, aren't you playing the same political games that Republicans are?
HARRY REID: Listen, Sen. Durbin explained that very well, and he did it here, did it on the floor earlier, as did Sen. Schumer. What right did they have to pick and choose what part of government is going to be funded? It’s obvious what’s going on here. You talk about reckless and irresponsible. Wow. What this is all about is Obamacare. They are obsessed. I don’t know what other word I can use. They’re obsessed with this Obamacare. It’s working now and it will continue to work and people will love it more than they do now by far. So they have no right to pick and choose.
BASH: But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it? REID: Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. This is — to have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing maybe means you’re irresponsible and reckless –
BASH: I’m just asking a question.
I guess this may explain why the Amber Alert System was shut down..
Thoughts? Beside stuffing his junk into his mouth to shut him up...Answer Question

I wish I was that confident. He's been a horribly mean spirited man for a long time, yet he keeps getting reelected. There are only a few different news outlets that will continue to hammer him on the comment, and good little partisan constituents don't bother to get news from all sources, even if they don't like them. I have preferred sources, but I read from one's that I normally don't agree with to get their spin on events. If nothing else, it helps me define the talking points of the day.
In the end, Reid will get away with it because his followers allow him to.
