GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! Harry Reid has decided not to run for re-election. So not only will 2016 mean that President Obama will no longer be in the White House, but we will be rid of Harry Reid as well. I wish him all the luck in the world. He leaves behind a legacy of shame. His bitter partisanship led to the neutering of the Senate and thus the entire legislative body of the United States federal government. In order to protect the President, and save vulnerable Democrats in the Senate, he refused to allow bills to come to a vote in the Senate. November 3rd, 2010 Harry Reid shut the Senate down, refusing to allow bills passed in the House to see the light of day in the Senate. This bitter small minded partisan politics gutted the legislative branch, and did nearly irreparable damage to the separation of powers that has protected out liberty for over 200 years.
Harry Reid legacy will be one of bitter hatred, and failure. He shut down the Senate to save President Obama from having to use the Veto Power, and to prevent Democrats from having to make controversial votes. He failed to protect the President’s agenda or reputation, and he failed to protect Democrat Senators.
Good Luck Senator Reid, maybe by returning to Nevada you will remember what it means to represent the will of the people. Maybe you will remember who it was your worked for.
