PRESS RELEASE


Harry Reid on Secret Negotiations
On Nazi Health Bill:
Don't Worry About Transparency,
`It's a Done Deal'

Jan. 8, 2010 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC).

With the Obama White House in a full mobilization to ram through its Nazi health 'reform' through secret negotiations and thuggery, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is playing a critical dirty role. Reid has made a rotten deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House not to empower the traditional conference committee to reconcile the House and Senate bills, but to ram through the White House's preferred Nazi-modelled bill in secret negotiations.

When confronted by a constituent concerned about the secrecy, at a tightly controlled town meeting on health care in Las Vegas, January 7, Reid responded with arrogance: "It doesn't matter about transparency; it's a done deal."

A LaRouche PAC spokesman responded:

If he keeps this up, it's Harry Reid who is going to be 'done.' The U.S. population is already enraged at Reid's role in pushing through the clause in the Senate health bill that tries to give permanent powers to the Nazi IMAB death panel, not to mention his blatant bribery and thuggery to get his 60 votes to pass this wildly unpopular bill. The population is not going to tolerate his outright Nazi tactics and legislation.

LPAC founder Lyndon LaRouche has already charged Reid with complicity in a plot to commit mass murder against the American population with this Nazi health bill. That Reid is fully aware of popular opposition to his role, was clear by his deployment of SEIU goons and suppression of discussion at the Jan. 7 townhall meeting. But Harry Reid should be aware: Americans don't take well to dictatorship, and those who push it. If he keeps on his current course, his political days are numbered.
