Well, he said that.
Harry Reid on Obama’s ‘Tax the Rich’ Proposal: Finally Those Who Got America Into Debt Will Have to Pay
Now you'd think Reid was referring to himself, considering the fact that no one on the planet is more responsible for America's soaring debt than he - except for Obama himself.
Reid is gleeful that those who he voted to give tax breaks to - and who took them - are going to be made to pay for their transgression.
“More than anyone else, these millionaires and billionaires benefitted from Bush tax cuts and contributed $3 trillion to our deficit, to help plunge this nation into a financial hole. A balanced approach to reduce our deficit means those who have benefitted the most from policies that created our deficit should also help solve our deficit.”
It wasn't Reid's spending three trillion dollars a year (half of which he didn't have to spend) that caused the deficit. It was the fact that a tiny portion of the money he felt Americans owed the government was never seized. That tiny portion being the miniscule tax cut that the rich - and a whole lot of the rest of us - got.
Harry Reid's an idiot. Nothing more can be said.
