On his Facebook page Harry Reid has written:
“The Affordable Care Act has been the law of the land for four years. Democrats are willing to work with reasonable Republicans to improve this law. But we will not bow to Tea Party anarchists who deny the mere fact that Obamacare is the law. We will not bow to Tea Party anarchists who refuse to accept that the Supreme Court ruled Obamacare to be constitutional. And we will not bow to Tea Party anarchists in the House and the Senate who ignore the fact that President Obama was overwhelmingly reelected in November.”
In a column today Review-Journal columnist Steve Sebelius asserts that ObamaCare is the “duly passed, court-upheld, election-tested, unamended law of the land.”
To which I reply with two words: Yucca Mountain.
The Screw Nevada Law has been the law of the land since 1987 when Louisiana Sen. J. Bennett Johnston rammed through a bill making Yucca Mountain the sole repository of spent nuclear fuel rods. It was passed by the House and Senate, signed by President Reagan, upheld by the courts and never repealed. Yet, the Yucca Mountain hole in the ground sits idle, defunded by Harry Reid and his Barack Obama.
What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander?
(Confession: I swiped the comparison of ObamaCare to Yucca Mountain from alert reader Steve.)
