Harry Reid: John McCain controls about 10 people and that’s all I needed to get things done in Senate

Marion Algier – Ask Marion

Harry Reid praised John McCain (again) for breaking away from the ‘Tea Party’ and said if it weren’t for him they wouldn’t have gotten anything done in the Senate, including immigration reform:

See I don’t need a lot of Republicans to help me. And that’s why I so admire John McCain. John McCain and I came to the House together 31 years ago. We came to the Senate together at the same time. He and I have fought over the years but we’re also very very good, good friends. And he broke away from the pack.

He said, in effect, we have to get some things done. So he doesn’t control the Republican caucus but he controls probably 10 people there. That’s all I needed.

And we were able to get a lot of things done. We nominated scores, we confirmed scores of nominees. And because of him we were able to get immigration reform done. We’ve been able to do some things.

But it’s because of John McCain breaking away from this ideological anarchy-driven Tea Party that has so much control over Republicans in Congress.


Senate majority Leader Harry Reid continued his attempted assault on the Tea Party on Thursday. Having called the Tea Party “anarchists” on the Senate floor weeks ago, the Senator has been pushing the narrative that every nefarious deed done in Washington is, somehow, the work of the Tea Party, the leftist’s boogeyman.

Calling Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz a schoolyard bully last week, Reid lashed out at the Tea Party and explained their formidability in the political process. After subtly jabbing Cruz by calling him the “very junior Senator from Texas,” Reid once again labeled Cruz as such and explained that not only does the Tea Party have “full control of the House,” but that the Tea Party also has “full control” of the Republican caucus in the Senate.

Reid is the schoolyard bully who often refuses to let bills that he or the Obama administration are against even come up for a vote and the Democrats have had the majority in the Senate since Obama was elected… so what is Reid whining about and stirring the pot for as he pits everyone against each other, which is what he intern unjustly accuses the GOP and “Tea Party” favorites of doing.

As for McCain, Lindsay Graham and the RINOS in the Senate?  Time to get rid of all these old Progressive RINO traitors and definitely Harry Reid along with them.  Time for some real change in 2014. We need some new blood in the Senate that will fight and stand-up for average Americans!! 

Gutierrez: “I’ve got 40-50 GOP votes for immigration reform” 

Comment: (August 8, 2013) There are more than 10 RINOS voting with the Democrats on appointees and policies that affords the required votes to further the agenda of the Islamic appeaser/Marxist occupying the White House.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
