Harry Reid: We’ve cut spending, GOP needs to get ‘serious’ about fiscal cliff

Yesterday, when questioned about the Democrats’ strategy for dealing with the fiscal cliff, Harry Reid whined to reporters that the Senate Democrats had already cut $1 billion and, gosh-darn it, they deserve a little credit!

$1 billion? Someone get that man a medal! Stat!

Reid’s delusions continued today, when he insisted that it’s Republicans who are stonewalling the Democrats’ efforts to solve the fiscal crisis. According to him, Democrats have been waiting endlessly for the GOP to submit “serious” ideas:

Oh, puh-leeze. This from the leader of a Senate that hasn’t passed a budget since April 29, 2009. Conservatives know Reid is utterly full of it, and they’re calling him out on his B.S.:




Harry’s on a roll today:

Harry Reid doesn’t understand Boehner’s brain, says no ill will toward Romney

  • Libs_R_Wrong

    This sort of unbelievable gall comes from thinking a narrow (51% – 49%) election victory equals 100% mandate to do anything. With that sort of arithmetic, no wonder we’ve never seen a budget from him!

      I never did understand liberal math…

      • mickeyco

        It takes a special kind of brain: one that sees up as down, in as out, etc.

  • Steve_J

    They cut 1 billion but added 1.3 TRILLION. I beleive they added the 1.3 TRILILON but don’t believe they cut $1.00 much less 1 billion.

  • Elaine

    My goal is to work toward taking the Senate majority AWAY from this man in 2014. That will be my REVENGE vote. Anyone else with me? By controlling both houses we can render Obama powerless. I want to see the faces of BO, Pelosi and Reid when that happens.

      More important are your state races. Only need 38 of the state legislatures to pass amendments to the Constitution, and not a thing the President, Congress, or the Supreme Court can do about them.

    Really? You morons haven’t done anything but spend in the past four years. One billion is nothing; our debt is disgraceful.

    Will somebody pleez put this nutbag scumbag creep in a strait jacket already, throw him in a padded cell and lose the key!

  • Cold War Grunt

    Lets break this one down …

    Allowing taxes to return to the Clinton era rates on 2% of the population is going to help how? If we don’t return all the tax rates to the Clinton era rates, don’t return to Clinton era spending rates, and don’t have an equivalent employment rate — this will accomplish exactly what?

    Nothing … Unless of course all you really want is to increase revenue without cutting spending, then it gives you exactly what they want.

    • digitalPimple

      There is no arguing with Dems. The Reps met their request for more revenue in an open and fair way. Done and Done. Just need cuts from Harry and Obama and the deals done.

      Harry is holding up the deal as he does with everything. Dude needs to get laid. Badly.

  • digitalPimple

    Will the Dems please remove this man and put in someone serious please? This is an easy deal and to be fair the Reps met the Dems request for more revenue in a very fair upfront way.

    The Reps are done. They did their job.

  • digitalPimple

    Do they give Harry regular mental health exams? They really need to start. Guys got a few loose marbles.

  • rivers

    Aren’t you just so sick of rich old white guys?

  • walterc

    I think if Harry will look on his desk, he will see at least 4 budgets passed by the house in the past year and a half. You know the ones he refused to let on the floor for an honest and open debate.

    Thanks people of Nevada.

  • louisiana_mom

    Great only have $15,999,000,000,000 more cuts to go…. idiot!

  • nc

    As a Californian, I say Thank You Nevada for taking the heat off of us for being “The Stupidest State” – for a little while, at least.

  • Jerseygalnny

    Omg, he thinks a billion is anything in the whole scheme of things? That is about like taking a gallon of water out of the St. Lawrence Seaway! Reid is a slimy worm, and should be replaced… not sure which slimy worm would replace him though… If you need a laugh, check out what folks have been adding to this … http://fundamentalrefounding.ning.com/forum/topics/you-know-you-are-being-run-by the post and comments are hilarious!

    Cut spending? Really

  • Finrod Felagund

    Harry Reid is a pederast.

  • TexSizzle

    Like all Democratics and too many Republicans in Congress, his idea of a spending cut is less of an increase in spending than he wants.

    Reid is an old, white, rich man….sound familiar?
