Republicans Are Clueless and Callous

September 19, 2011

A message from Senator Harry Reid:

We are locked in a struggle for America’s soul. Our very values are at risk. Rick Perry calls Social Security a “monstrous lie.” Paul Ryan dreams of ending Medicare forever. And the Republican response to the thought of an uninsured coma patient? Grisly, callous shouting from the audience.

They want to reverse the steps our country took to care for the sick and prevent our parents and grandparents from living in squalor. Doing so would fundamentally change America. We simply must fight back. The Republicans want to ride a wave of frustration to win four Senate seats so they can remake America. This country could change forever. Everywhere you look, Republicans are assaulting the very idea that we are our brother’s keeper and that all Americans deserve a certain basic dignity. The Republicans don’t seem to care that our people don’t have jobs. They refuse to lift a finger to get the economy moving again.

The Republicans don’t seem to care that one in four American children live in poverty. They’re too busy lecturing us about the budget deficit they created while defending huge tax giveaways to the big corporations. Democrats have always been the party that fights for the middle class – and now is no different.

The Republicans are 4 seats away from a total congressional takeover. I know progress doesn’t always come as quickly as we’d like. But our values will always endure. Democrats will always be the ones fighting for what’s right for the American people. Republicans will always fight for the super-rich and the big corporations.

Harry Reid
