Former Senate Majority Leader: ‘Trump Ruined Health Care’

Suddenly, former lawmakers and officials are coming out of the shadows to cast their opinions on what should be happening, such as: Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, and now former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Reid, Democrat from Nevada, is blasting the president for “ruining” health care. He said at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) meeting that he believes the failing system is Trump’s fault. “Healthcare has basically been ruined by Trump,” Reid stated.

He does realize that it was created by Obama and the Democrats, correct? Republicans, aside from the RINOS, would like nothing more than to rid our country of the horrible policy.

Obamacare? More like Obama-Doesn’t-Care.

The Hill reports:

Reid also attacked White House Chief of Staff John Kelly for his response to Rep. Frederica Wilson, (D-Fla.) who claimed this week that Trump was disrespectful to the mother of a fallen soldier over the phone while she was on the line.

Reid said, “Congresswoman Wilson, look what they tried to do to this woman. She has spent her life helping people,” he added,  “Truth overcomes.”

He continued, “I would hope that they would stop sending this four-star general out and put him back where he belongs: trying to control Trump.”

According to Wilson, Trump said that the fallen soldier  “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens it hurts anyway.”

Both Trump and John Kelly have blasted these comments as incorrect, and shamed her of “politicizing a “sacred” issue.”

Reid’s surprise appearance at the DNC meeting, where he was not scheduled to appear, comes just days after he told The Nevada Independent that he expects Democrats to retake the Senate in 2018, calling it “very probable.”

Reid said, “We’re two short in the Senate, and I think it’s very probable that we’ll be able to retake the Senate. And I have felt much better about the House in recent weeks.”

He concluded, “There’s no question in my mind that this election coming up in 2018 is going to be a change election.”

Sounds to me like Reid is off his rocker, similarly to Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters. They’re a few sandwiches short of a picnic.
