Reid: Why Would We Want To Pass A Bill To Help Children With Cancer? (Video)
◼ More stunningly bad optics for the Dems. When asked by Dana Bash at CNN why he isn’t willing to help even one child who has cancer, Reid responded “Why would we want to do that?” - Nice Deb
◼ Deal With Harry Reid? Why Would We Want to Do That?
At a press conference earlier today, CNN’s Dana Bash asked Senate majority leader Harry Reid why he was opposing a bill that would authorize funding for the National Institutes of Health, an institution that had to stop experimental disease treatments this week because of the government shutdown.
Bash asked, “If you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?”
Harry Reid responded, “Why would we want to do that?”
After all, he would lose leverage, and there’s no political benefit in it for him.
