Harry Reid: ‘Why Would We Want To’ Help One Kid With Cancer?

Like us on Facebook:

Dana Bash: But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it? Harry Reid: Why would we want to do that?Ooops. Why would we want to help one kid with cancer? Dingy Harry Reid let the cat out of the bag. When asked by Dana Bash why the Senate wouldn’t pass a House bill funding the NIH, Harry Reid (and Chuck Schumer) became viability angry. Reid also got in a pot shot at Dana Bash at the end of the question. Bashing the press hacks doesn’t really make me cringe, but ‘why would we want to help’ one kid with cancer? Harry Reid, you just revealed your hand and the rest of the progressive liberal extremist Democrats. You don’t give a sh*t about the American people.

DANA BASH: 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’ve said, will you at least pass that? And if not, aren’t you playing the same political games that Republicans are?

HARRY REID: Listen, Sen. Durbin explained that very well, and he did it here, did it on the floor earlier, as did Sen. Schumer. What right did they have to pick and choose what part of government is going to be funded? It’s obvious what’s going on here. You talk about reckless and irresponsible. Wow. What this is all about is Obamacare. They are obsessed. I don’t know what other word I can use. They’re obsessed with this Obamacare. It’s working now and it will continue to work and people will love it more than they do now by far. So they have no right to pick and choose.

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

REID: Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. This is — to have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing maybe means you’re irresponsible and reckless –

BASH: I’m just asking a question.
