36,000 Jobs Lost in February - " Really Good "

Democrat Socialist Senate Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid of Nevada said on the US Senate floor that the 36,000 jobs lost in February was "really good". There Reid goes again sticking both his feet in his mouth. Presumably, Reid was attempting to say that 36,000 jobs lost is better than a higher number of lost jobs; but obviously to the 26,000,000 million Americans out of work, working part time that want full time work, or that have just given up looking for a job altogether, there can be little comfort in Reid's insensitive remarks. This is particularly true since Senator Reid's home state, Nevada has the highest foreclosure rate and about highest unemployment rate in the country, officially at 13% and unofficially at 18% or more, when all are counted. It has not helped that President Obama has called out Las Vegas telling companies and tourists not to "blow their money" in Vegas even though it is one of the most cost effective convention and vacation destinations in the country. Mr. President, people who work in hotels and casinos need jobs too.

This is probably the reason that Harry Reid's potential Republican opponents Sue Lowden, the front runner and Danny Tarkanian, are both beating Reid by more than 10 percentage points in the polls. It is becoming increasing clear that the people of Nevada intend to send Senator Harry Reid into retirement, next November, back to his home in Searchlight, Nevada. And, it won't be too soon. Though most likely Reid will become a paid lobbyist, when he loses his reelection bid in order to continue living the cushy life in Washington, rather than move back to the desert in Search Light.

Senator Harry Reid has been President Obama's water boy in the US Senate attempting to ram through all of Obama's big government Socialist Schemes, which are a road to national bankruptcy. The Congressional Budget Office just estimated that if Obama is allowed to pursue his reckless spending Socialist Schemes that the budget deficit over the next ten years will be $9.8 Trillion, which is $1.2 Trillion more than projected by the Obama Administration. And, if government accounting is true to form, we can assume that the numbers will actually be double, or maybe even triple the Congressional Budget Office estimate. This will lead to higher interest rates and inflation, the collapse of the dollar and making the United States a banana republic. We just can't let this happen.

Obviously, Obama's SwindleUS Plan, which Senator Harry Reid rushed through the Senate without many Senators even reading the bill has done little to impact the country's unemployment rate. In fact, unemployment, which Obama, Reid and Pelosi promised would not go higher than 8% if the SwindleUS Plan was enacted grew to more than 10%. While it was important to stabilize the banking system, which actually occurred under President Bush, all the other Obama, Reid, Pelosi bail-outs have been a complete waste of money and represent nothing more than pay offs to political supporters like the auto and the public employee unions at the expense of the American taxpayer. The end result is pretty obvious. Government employees now make significantly more money that private sector employees with pensions that are bankrupting all levels of government.

Democrat Socialist Senator Harry Reid is completely out of touch with the American people along with President Obama and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from San Francisco. These Democrat Socialists are now attempting to push ram through Obama's HealthScare Plan, which will lead to the government take over of health care in the United States. If they succeed, we will see rationing, higher premiums, death panels, $500 Billion in new taxes and $500 Billion in Medicare cuts. 22 million Senior Citizens will lose their Medicare Advantage HMO programs if HealthScare is enacted, which will result in higher out of pocket cost for them. There is no free ride. In order to insure 30 million uninsured Americans, every one else will pay more. It is just common sense, which is the reason that 59% of Americans oppose Obama's HealthScare Plan.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing common sense Conservatives who support limited government, term limits, a balanced budget, lower taxes and less regulation, energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. These concepts are the key to economic prosperity not Socialism. Democrat Socialists like Senator Harry Reid prove every day that they are a clear and present danger to the people of the United States. We must take back our country. We can do it. We must do it.
