SHAMELESS EXPLOITATION … Harry Reid Implies Sequestration Caused Explosion That Killed 7 Marines In Nevada (VIDEO)



Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid implies that sequestration was responsible for seven US Marines killed in Nevada. Far be it from Democrats to not exploit a tragedy for their own political agenda. Yesterday, on the Senate floor this morning, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) had the audacity to imply the explosion that killed seven Marines at an ammunitions depot in Hawthorne, NV was due to the “cutting back in training and maintenance” because of  sequester.

Mr. President, it’s very important we continue training our military, so important. But one of the things in sequester is we cut back in training and maintenance. That’s the way sequester was written. Now, the bill that’s on the floor, we hope to pass today helps that a little bit. At least in the next six months, it allows the military some degree of ability to move things around a little bit. Flexibility, we call it, and that’s good. But we have to be very vigilant. This sequester should go away. We have cut already huge amounts of money in deficit reduction. It’s just not appropriate, Mr. President, that our military can’t train and do the maintenance necessary.

These men and women, our Marines were training there in Hawthorne. And with this sequester, it’s going to cut back this stuff. I just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military. They are significant, being away from home, away from families, away from their country.

Do Democrats have any shame? Seven American Marines are dead and the top ranking Democrat Senator could not even wait for the names of these American heroes to be announced and he was using their death for politician gain. This is just one of many examples of how Democrats have played politics with the sequestration. Needless to say, the US Marines are furious with US Senator Harry Reid (D-NV). How are individuals like this voted back into office?  Could Democrats get any lower than to politicize the death of America’s bravest who risk their lives to defend our freedom and liberties?

      Harry Reid isn’t labeled “Dirty Harry” for being open and above board. After all, he is a Socialist/Democrat that will say and do whatever he thinks is required to get his way or to trash someone or something for his agenda.

      Hawthorne is an ammunition depot for the U.S. armed services. There are rows upon rows of underground storage bunkers. Finished ammo and powder are stored. All it takes is for one person to make a mistake and cause an explosion.

      There is not an arsenal in the country where the safety record is perfect.

      it’s very shameful to profit from death but the criminal democrats have made an art of it.

      He should be removed from office, along with the uncountable Obama, the most hated, empty suit, devil man of the world. And take the wicked witch Peloski along.

      the problem here is the lack of attention to our military by those like Reid, Pelosi, and foremost, Obama.
      they are only paving the way for communism and poverty

      Cut tax loop holes, end the sequester, fully fund the military instead of trying to repeal Obamacare for the 38th time
      SM: Just curious. what do you consider the definition of a tax loop hole?

      Better idea, 1) Make every one have skin in the game and pay taxes. 2) Cut the tax rates. or Simplify the tax code and make it a flat tax. 3) Put people back to work and stop this ridiculous govt regulation. 4) Reform Social Security and Medicare. 5) Make individuals who receive unemployment and welfare benefits drug tested. 6) Repeal Obamacare or if not make all politicians, including President, VP, Cabinet members and their families on the insurance exchange programs. Lets see how long they like being on Medicaid. 7) Reduce the cost of govt spending by 2% for each of the next 5 years. 8) Balance the budget. I could go on forever.

      EVERYONE needs to stop politicizing this comment and give Mr Reid a thumbs up for saying to the President
      “Hey, Mr. President, NO MORE CUTS TO THE MILITARY!” The way I heard it, he was defending OUR position.
      Please clarify this for me if I am wrong but no one else has drawn this obvious conclusion.
      Santorum Fan!
      SM: You can do what ever you like, we will do differently. Dingy Harry has made far too many comments like this and thinks a simply apology gets him off the hook. He was not pointing this comment to Obama, he was aiming it at House Republicans. Nice try.
