Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) said in 2005, "We strongly disagree with [President Bush's] plan to privatize Social Security." He also said, "The Bush plan would take our already record high $4.3 trillion debt and put us another $2 trillion in the red. That’s an immoral burden to place on the backs of the next generation." This is an amazing statement because the Democrats have added over $3 trillion to the national debt in just the last two years and are eager to bury us with much more federal spending in the near future.
In December 2009, Sen. Reid likened Republicans, who wanted to block the implementation of government-run healthcare, to those who opposed the abolition of slavery in centuries past. In a Dec. 7th speech on the Senate floor, Reid said: “Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘Slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.' If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early, things aren’t bad enough.’ To most conservatives (who are not racists, by the way), this is an absurd analogy.
Mike Capuano (D-MA) said this in Feb. 2011, "Every once in a while you got to get down in the streets and get a little bloody when necessary." Got civility? Not much.
Not yet convinced how out of touch the Democrats are? The country is now facing an oil crisis as expressed in skyrocketing gas prices and what does the president and the vice president want to do? No, they don't want to increase supply or open up the U.S. reserves or drill to decrease our cost. They don't care how much we pay for gasoline or other energy sources. Instead, they want to fund the railroads. How... um, nineteenth century!
