SHAMELESS EXPLOITATION … Harry Reid Implies Sequestration Caused Explosion That Killed 7 Marines In Nevada (VIDEO)
SHAMEFUL, SIMPLY SHAMEFUL … DEMOCRATS USE THE DEATH OF SEVEN US MARINES FOR THEIR POLITICAL AGENDA.
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?
