At least crooks use their own money for bribery, not OPM
The news that Harry Reid bought Sen. Mary Landrieu’s healthcare takeover vote with a $100 million dollar bribe is bad enough. What is absolutely disgusting is that he is doing it with our money, but without our permission. Moreover, since the main stream media refuses to do any reporting, most people don’t realize that Harry Reid has his hand in their back pocket fishing for 33 cents in loose change to pay for that bribe. That’s small beer when he does it to one citizen; it is larceny beyond the dreams of any criminal when he does it it 300 million of us; not once, but over and over again.
It was Sarah Palin who quoted the great Margaret Thatcher’s observation that:
The trouble with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.
I am part way through Palin’s book and one message comes through loud and clear; she understands what Thatcher said. She has made her political career out of fighting the likes of Harry Reid and the corrupt GOP establishment of Alaska.
