Who is Harry Reid?

In his own words:

Reid Supported Strengthening Social Security In 1990s, Opposes Now:
In 1999, Reid Declared: “[M]ost Of Us Have No Problem With Taking A Small Amount Of The Social Security Proceeds And Putting It Into The Private Sector.” (Fox’s “Fox News Sunday,” 2/14/99)

In 1999, Reid Said: “I Think We Have To Take Care Of Social Security …” (Fox’s “Fox News Sunday,” 7/11/99)

In 1999, Reid Said: “[W]e’re Visiting Chile Because It Is Doing Interesting Things In Social Security And Other Parts Of Its Free Market System…” (Tony Batt, “Reid To Embark On South America Trip,” Las Vegas Review-Journal, 3/30/99)

Now, In 2005, Reid Is Blocking Personal Retirement Accounts. “For instance, [Reid] is against personal retirement accounts: ‘If someone wants to privatize Social Security, they are going to have to find someone else to get in bed with other than me,’ Reid told a television audience in Nevada recently.” (Terence Samuel, “A Leader From The Wilderness,” U.S. News & World Report, 11/29/04)
Damn, libs hate it when you use their own words and voting record against them. They call it "attacks" and "negativism." They just don't call it what it is...the truth.
