    To call him a piece of puke doesn't do him justice.

    Looks like he has a straw man set up to split the vote, last ditch effort to retain his job.

    Hope the voters don't fall for it.

    I find myself having difficulty understanding why a person, claiming that he comes on Ts.com to get away from political b.s. would open a thread with the subject: "Harry Reid". With the subject title "Harry Reid" being obviously political, I wonder who forced him to open the thread? Break'em all! Tom Ruble

    Sorry Lit - -

    I've come to the conclusion that these people in the WH and Congress are out of their minds.......they know that the majority of the people of this country do not want Obamacare, yet they keep pushing just to show their power. And now this idiot Reid, trying to make it impossible for a future Congress to repeal this mess? God help us!

    The impudent tyranny of Sen. Harry Reid

    > Beginning on page 1,000 of the measure, Section 3403 reads in part: ".
