Senate Democrats Care More About Obamacare than Children with Cancer and Veterans

Yesterday, the Senate voted down a House joint resolution entitled Honoring our Promise to America’s Veterans Act, simply because they’re on a mission to protect Obamacare instead of the American people.  

Things are getting worse under the leadership of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 13%.

Today, Dana Bash asked Senate Democrats why not just support the bill that provides funding to NIH which helps children with cancer:

You all talked about children with cancer unable to go to clinical trials.  The House is presumably going to pass a bill that funds at least the NIH.  Given what you said, will you at least pass that, and if not, aren’t you playing the same political games that Republicans are?

He tried to block the question by placing blame on Republicans again.  Dana added:

But if you could help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?

Reid responded:

Why would we want to do that?

  1. This really hits home. My little girl has a rare cancer and is about to undergo a clinical trial. Reid’s remarks clearly indicate his attitude towards the people who pay his salary. Why wouldn’t he want to help children like my daughter? Because it could save her life.

  2. This conversation is so out of frame with reality it makes my head spin.

    First off Heritage Foundation this is your idea made real.

    10s of millions of people without health insurance are finally going to have to accept some measure of responsibility for the cost of their healthcare.

    Shutting down the government because you don’t like it is INSANE.

    • And millions more who have insurance are going to get raped by this government as their companies drop insurance plans and force the formerly responsible citizens to pay astronomical insurance rates or endure penalties up to and including federal liens on their homes if they refuse to pay…all so the democrats can buy votes and subsidize ne’er-do-wells…UP YOURS YOU SLIMY LIBERALS…

  3. It’s Republicans who decided to use the Continuing resolution as a political tool to hold the nation hostage to their demands.

    Quite clear it is the GOP that has no regard, not just for cancer patients and vets, but for the nation as a whole.
