Arkansas senator unloads both barrels at Harry

Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton took to the floor of the Senate today to lambaste Nevada Democratic Sen. Harry Reid for trying to delay defense bill, calling his leadership cancerous.

“I’m forced to listen to the bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings of the minority leader. Normally like other Americans I ignore them, I can’t ignore them today,” Cotton said of Reid’s complaints. “When was the last time the minority leader read a bill? It was probably an electricity bill.”

He also took umbrage with Reid’s claim the bill was written in the dead of night and reminded him of who rammed though ObamaCare.

    But the ObamaCare bill wasn’t written in the dead of night. It went through literally dozens of committee hearings and mark-ups and was the subject of months and months of heated debates.

  2. prlarry says:

    Sen. Reid “vulgar?” I’m not a Reid fan but I guess vulgar is in the eyes/ears of the beholder. At least Sen. Cotton is a war veteran.

  3. Vernon Clayson says:

    nyp is partially right, that unbearable tax burden, laughably called the Affordable Care Act. was hatched before the Clintons pushed it in 1993 and has been mulled and “perfected” since, only a very small percentage of people have even signed up for and even fewer have paid into it and it is unknown how many people have been provided medical care under its terms. If there was any heated debate it was about when to force it on the people, it was never about stopping it. Ask Chief Justice Roberts why he proclaimed it a tax to make it legal?

  4. nyp says:

    More than 30 million Americans have gained health insurance since the Affordable Care Act was enacted. The percentage of Americans without coverage is now lower than at any time since they started keeping records.

    And, you know what? I went to the doctor last month and I didn’t see any federal bureaucrats in the exam room between me and my doctor. What happened to them?

  5. Spot on Senator Cotton…January 2016 can’t come soon enough. (And let’s not forget that Dingy, Ho House Harry is defending the head of the VA – if he [McDonald] were a Republican appointment can you imagine the vitriol that would be spewing from this stumbling old bum’s pie hole?)

    Tom Cotton? Seriously?

    “According to Snopes, the New York Times published this:

    “…an article about how the government was tracking terrorist financing, Cotton called for the journalists to be imprisoned. This news story got a lot of heat from various conservative outlets, but before he was even running for office, Cotton took it upon himself to publicize his grievances in a sarcastic?letter?to journalists Eric Lichtblau and James Risen… It seems that Cotton’s letter to Iran a few days ago was not the first of its kind.”

  7. Steve says:

    Never let it be claimed that Patrick offers the whole story.
    On any topic.

    Looks like Obama and Cotton are on the same side as regards NYT reporter James Risen.

    A seven year battle to defend himself from attacks waged by both Democrat and Republican alike, says “The Obama Administration is the greatest enemy of press freedom in a generation,”
    (Huffpo quote) I guess he quit going after old battles.

    It’s well worth noting Tom Cotton won his election to the Senate and, as all liberals like to say about their hoof in mouth politicians, people “evolve”
    Tom Cotton was writing from the battlefield when he made that statement about journalists being criminal.

    Patrick remains the sham plea king.
