Don't you love it when a Millionaire Politician gets mad at Billionaire donors because they're not your Billionaire donors -- but instead are someone else's Billionaire donors.
That's the situation with Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry "The Liar" Reid these days.
Why do I call him "The Liar"?
I call him, Harry "The Liar," because he openly lied on the floor of the United States Senate about American men and women who came forward to say that they have lost their health care coverage because of the legal mandates built into the ObamaCare law -- which his party is responsible for passing into law.
Yes, he actually had the nerve to say that Americans, many with grave illnesses, were lying about losing their health care coverage because of the ObamaCare law.
He lied to the Senate, the American people, and he should be ashamed of himself.
But he isn't, because now Harry The Liar is lying to Americans when talking about his latest obsession, the Koch brothers --and even going so far as to call the Billionaire Conservative contributors "Un-American."
Of course, keep in mind, while Harry "The Liar" Reid gripes about the Conservative Koch brothers, he never mentions the influence pedlers who give millions to the Democrat Party.
Reid never mentions Billionaire Liberal donors George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Oprah Winfrey, Eli Broad, Jon Stryker, Steven Spielberg, Dirk Ziff, Haim Saban, Charles Ergen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, the Weinstein Company, and others.
Of course, for Harry "The Liar," his own re-election campaign getting a huge donation by bit time Democrat donors like the law firm Weitz & Luxenberg, who by one way or another made donations totalling $157,250 to his campaign.
To Reid, such a huge donation is not a big deal and shouldn't be mentioned when talking about getting incredible amounts of money from big donors.
You see, We the People are no fooled! We understand what is really going on.
Most of us see that Reid is playing to his liberal base while trying to unsuccessfully distract the American people away from the failure of ObamaCare and the fact that he was partly responsible for inflicting us with such a horrid law.
And yes, he certainly is a hypocrit about campaign funding.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the floor on Tuesday to denounce the spending -- now up to $14.5 million -- by Charles and David Koch on Senate races, the latest attempt by Democrats to raise the profile of the free-spending conservative brothers in advance of the November 2014 election.
"What is un-American is when shadowy billionaires pour unlimited money into our democracy to rig the system to benefit themselves and the wealthiest one percent. I believe in an America where economic opportunity is open to all. And based on their actions and policies they promote, the Koch brothers seem to believe in an America where the system is rigged to benefit the very wealthy."
Then he went on to add:
"The Koch brothers and other moneyed interests are influencing the politics in a way not seen for generations. Republican senators have come to the floor to defend the Koch brothers' attempt to buy our democracy. Once again, Republicans are all in to protect their billionaire friends. Not only have Senate Republicans come to the floor to defend the Koch brothers personally, they have again and again defended the Koch brothers' radical agenda -- and it is radical, at least from the middle-class perspective."
On April 7th, Reid twittered:
"Many Republican senators might as well wear Koch insignias to denote their sponsorship."
For the record, Koch spokesman Phillip Ellender had this to say in response: "It is clear that there is a big difference between the vision of Senator Reid and of Koch as it relates to the future direction of this country....We are disappointed that Senator Reid is attacking private citizens rather than the problems facing this nation. It is no wonder that Americans have lost faith in Congress."
But wait, how about Harry "The Liar" Reid's own Koch connection. He never mentions the funds that his campaign received from a Koch lobbyist in 2003.
And how about this millionare politician calling others names when he is getting so much in campaign contributions.
Senator Harry Reid has reported a total of 1,001 contributions ($200 or more) totaling $1,434,585 in 2013-2014.

Fact is, according to the OpenSecrets.org website, Harry "The Liar" Reid's cycle fundraising 2009 - 2014 Campaign Committee, last reported December 2013:
Cash on Hand: $1,528,717
Yes, Harry "The Liar" has over a Million Dollars in cash on hand!
And yes, no matter what Reid says, Billionaire Conservatives Charles and David Koch are a lot less guilty of buying influence or pushing a partisan agenda than are Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Big Labor Unions, George Clooney, or the other Hollywood Leftist who wish to see the Democrat Party's Socialist agenda turn America into something none of us want.
That's just how I see it.
