One month to the day after Harry Reid caused a public stir by declaring that all stories about ObamaCare hurting Americans were “lies,” he now denies ever having said it.
First, here’s Senator Reid last month:
“We heard about the evils of ObamaCare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers.
But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.”
The Democratic Senate Majority Leader on Wednesday asked Americans to suspend their disbelief, as he made an incredible denial:
“Mr. President, the junior Senator from Wyoming has come to the floor several times recently talking about the fact that examples that he and other Republicans have given, dealing with ObamaCare, examples that they think are bad, I’ve called lies.
Mr. President, that is simply untrue. I have never come to the floor, to my recollection, and I never said a word about any of the examples that Republicans have given regarding ObamaCare and how it’s not very good.”
Well, let’s get into our Wayback Machine and go to last month:
Oh, Senator Reid. Why are you making a mockery of what little trust Americans still have in government? There are millions of everyday Americans hurting from a reckless piece of partisan legislation that members of your own party admitted to not even having read, which now being held together with illegal ramshackle measures by your president.
Claiming that Americans hurt by your recklessness are liars is not only reprehensible, it’s callous. With full knowledge that you were busted on your preposterous statement, you now reverse yourself for one reason only: you look like a fool.
But, hey, Harry Reid is only one senator, right? Well, then, shame on the Democratic Party for making this dishonest man their Majority Leader for eight long years.
