Sen. Harry Reid – legislative hypocrite

In order to stuff his Christmas Eve healthcare vote through the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid had to lard up bribes to key Senators (Ben Nelson, we’re talking about you) in a 383-page “manager’s amendment” that was completely hidden from public view. And he’s trying hard to get the House to swallow the Senate bill whole so there’s no conference committee to be held to account on the matter. Naked Emperor News has this clip of this same Senator Harry Reid in 2006 speaking out on the matter.

If it was such a bad idea at the time (on a bill far less reaching that the “healthcare reform”), Senator, why are we all supposed to think it’s just the bomb now?
