“There's plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they're being told all over America. But in those tales – turned out to be just that – tales – stories made up from whole cloth, lies, distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.” – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Wednesday, February 26, 2014, on the Senate floor
For the 6.2 million Americans who have been unceremoniously dropped from their personal health care insurance coverage because of the government imposition and intrusion of the so-called Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, you have been called liars by the Senate Majority Leader – Nevada Democrat Harry Reid.
For the many more millions of Americans who have struggled with the Obamacare website, but to no avail, you too have been called liars by the Senate Majority Leader – Nevada Democrat Harry Reid.
And just where did Reid make these outlandish pronouncements? The hallowed halls of the Senate chamber.
The intelligence of the average American has been insulted time and time again by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius in their feeble and feckless attempts to ensure the nation that Obamacare is good for them, that it is better than the coverage they already have or have been separated from through no choice of their own. Yet the raw numbers have proven otherwise – that we the people are not falling for the chicanery coming from the Obama administration and his minions.
Now Reid feels compelled to pile on by calling millions of Americans liars – no sugar coating, no euphemisms or spin – rare for anything said in Washington – further subjugating them from their dignity. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), and US Representative Gary Peters (D-MI-14) have also taken to calling these same Americans liars.
These true life horror stories have come from rabbis, priests, stay at home moms with sick children, truck drivers, sales clerks, and even doctors and nurses. Folks from all walks of life, dropped from their chosen coverage or unable to procure coverage on the government website have reached a new low – called liars by the people supposedly sent to Washington to represent their best interests, when the only interests they are representing are self-interests, their own job salvation, and their attempts to get reelected.
For any of those people who have been dropped by their insurance company, send a copy of that cancellation notice directly to the office of Harry Reid. Let millions of copies of these letters no one asked to receive flood Reid’s office. Make him rue the day he called hardworking Americans liars when it is he who is the political opportunist.

Fax the copy of the cancellation notice to Reid’s office: 202-224-7327
Call his office to politely lodge your disgust with Reid – yes, politely – don’t sink to his level: 202-224-3542
Flood Senator Harry Reid’s office. Bury them in a sea of paper to make them understand that the poor choices made by government have consequences – often dire. Yet to people like Reid, the suffering of average, faceless, nameless Americans is merely collateral damage. Make Reid understand that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
