Democrat Harry Reid, “Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive,” … What Happens When he isn’t Reelected?
Democrat Senate majority leader Harry Reid once again makes a comment that has some scratching their heads. Reid suggested that domestic violence by men has increased due to US joblessness. So is Obamanomics now going to end domestic violence? Or has it created more domestic violence since more jobs have been lost and we are just under 10% unemployment?
Reid, speaking in the midst of a Senate debate over whether to pass a $15 billion package meant to spur job creation, appeared to argue that joblessness would lead to more domestic violence.
“I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Why? Men don’t have jobs.”
Harry Reid then went on to say the following:
“Women don’t have jobs either, but women aren’t abusive, most of the time,” he said.
“Men, when they’re out of work, tend to become abusive,” the majority leader added. “Our domestic crisis shelters in Nevada are jammed.”
Here is the real question that needs to be asked of Harry Reid and Barack Obama. Actually, there are two;
1) Will Reid and Obama both become abusive when they are without jobs and fired by the American People in 2010 and 2012, respectively?
2) If Reid and Obama had so much concern for the rise of domestic violence because of out of work men, then why did they not concentrate 100% on jobs in America and not waste so much time with issues like health care and Cap & Trade?
