You can’t make this stuff up. Who the heck would want to? Harry Reid has blamed “exhaustion” for voting against his own Healthcare Bill:
WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats passed a landmark health care bill in a climactic Christmas Eve vote that could define President Barack Obama’s legacy and usher in near-universal medical coverage for the first time in the country’s history.
The 60-39 vote on a cold winter morning capped months of arduous negotiations and 24 days of floor debate. It also followed a succession of failures by past congresses to get to this point. Biden presided as 58 Democrats and two independents voted “yes.” Republicans unanimously voted “no.”
An exhausted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., initially cast a “no” vote by mistake, then quickly corrected himself as fellow senators burst out laughing.
Freudian Slip, perhaps, Harry? I’m laughing at you, myself. Did you notice the snarky crack about the “failure of past Congresses” remark? NOTE to the Associated-freaking-Press: Most of us here in Flyover Country consider this Healthcare Legislation to be the real “Failure” here.
