A couple of weeks back on these pages we wrote of our outrage over the following jaw-dropping statement made by Harry Reid, the Leader of the Democrats, on the floor of the U.S. Senate:
“… my Republican friends have yet to produce a single shred of evidence that the regulations they hate so much do the broad economic harms they claim. That’s because there aren’t any.”
Reid is using his power as the Majority Leader of the Senate to deny nearly two dozen regulation relief bills already passed by the House to come to the floor of the Senate for a vote at a time when 26 million Americans are unemployed, under employed, or have given up even trying to find a job.

The article goes on to talk about the column that George Will wrote for the Washington Post about the founder of CKE Restaurants, Carl Karcher.
It matters not that the Republican lead House passes bill after bill to eliminate burdensome regulations if the Senate does not even get a chance to talk about them, let alone vote on them.
Harry Reid, you are working very hard at keeping America unemployed.
Let’s spread the word.
