Democrats seem to be losing it lately — in a bad way. Just this week, presidential nominee Hillary Clinton tried to blame former Secretary of State Colin Powell for her email server. On Friday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid blamed Republicans for the spread of a deadly disease.
Reid released a statement claiming the spread of the Zika virus “will only get worse if Republicans continue their refusal to work with Democrats on a bipartisan response,” reported the Washington Examiner.
As usual, Reid is placing blame on the wrong party. Senate Democrats blocked an additional $1.1 billion in funding to fight the disease because it took money away from existing sources that include Democrat sacred cows like Obamacare and funding for Planned Parenthood clinics in Puerto Rico.
“Democrats have been waiting for months for Republicans to get serious. The American people cannot afford to wait any longer,” said Reid.
Reid can blather on all day long about Republicans, but it is the Democrats that are playing politics with the American public.
Democrats aren’t allowing funding for Zika because the bill presented didn’t allow them to get funding for some of their pet projects, and they’re having a hard time explaining why Obama’s administration has yet to tap into unused funds without congressional approval.
Of course, they’ll blame the GOP — it’s what they do best. They do it every time they don’t get their way.
But legislation is only one step away from Obama’s desk — if the Democrats would simply stop playing around and laying blame at the feet of Republicans.
Meanwhile, the disease doesn’t show any signs of going away any time soon. Unfortunately, neither do the mind-boggling games Democrats play.
Harry Reid just needs to go home now. His ridiculous accusations are only showing how he is slowly losing his grip on reality.
