Desperate Democrat Sinks to New Low

Letter from Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele

With a shocking speech on the U.S. Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid showed just how desperate and divorced from reality the Democrats have become in their unrelenting quest to impose socialism on America's health care.

In bemoaning Republican senators' opposition to the unprecedented Obama Democrat scheme to seize a fifth of our economy, impose hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes and trillions in new debt on our nation, and put Washington bureaucrats between Americans and their doctors, Reid has gone way too far, and I quote:

"Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, 'slow down, stop everything, let's start over.' If you think you've heard these same excuses before, you're right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said 'slow down, it's too early, things aren't bad enough.'"

"When women spoke up for the right to speak up, they wanted to vote, some insisted they simply, slow down, there will be a better day to do that, today isn't quite right."

"When this body was on the verge of guaranteeing equal civil rights to everyone regardless of the color of their skin, some senators resorted to the same filibuster threats that we hear today."

If Harry Reid cared more about real health care reform needs -- like ending his trial lawyer allies' massive fraudulent litigation costs -- than forcing his party's socialist pipe dream upon an unwilling American people, he might be tempted to apologize for his shameless, and false, accusations.

Don't hold your breath.

I'm not surprised that Harry Reid has resorted to such a laughably desperate attack on our Republican senators and the truth.

The Obama Democrats will go to any length to attain their leftist goal of controlling every facet of American life. He knows that the American people don't want to surrender their health care freedoms to Big Government.

Republican senators are on the side of the American people, who adamantly oppose the Obama Democrats' health care takeover -- and with your help, history will prove it.

You and the RNC are all that stand between our sensible Republican plan for real health care reform and the Democrats' scheme to take more of your hard-earned income to pay for two new unsustainable entitlements while making the quality of your health care worse.

You can let Harry Reid know what you think of his poor understanding of history -- and his socialist health care takeover -- by sending him a personalized e-postcard here.


  1. Would someone please tell me what the filing fee is for a Republican to run for Lonoke County Treasurer?

  2. Mr. Walker,

    I'm forwarding your question along with your email address to our Chairman.
