I am getting tired of the whole budget debate that is going on in Washington. We face yet another deadline tonight or face the dreaded government shutdown. But if you look under the hood of the rhetoric you find the reason to why the Democrats have been loosing the war of public opinion.
“Republicans want to shut down the government because they think there’s nothing more important than keeping women from getting cancer screenings. This is indefensible and everyone should be outraged,” Reid said on the Senate floo (source).
The fact the Senator Harry Reid even thought that this was a good thing to say out loud, or even to think in his head, shows how far out of touch he is with reality. The fact that he may even believe that statement scares me. No rational person would think that a political party would want to keep women from getting cancer screenings, this is just good old fashion fear mongering.
Don’t even get me started on Rep Louis Slaughter, “”In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.”” (source)
Are these people serious? But go ahead Democrats, keep up the rhetoric, it is making you less and less electable.
