Harry Reid called on to apologize for calling suffering Americans liars

reidThousands of Americans have been adversely affected by Obamacare, and their stories are now part of the national discussion on healthcare.

But according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, they are all lying.

“There’s plenty of horror stories being told,” Reid proclaimed. “All of them are untrue. But they’re being told all over America.”

Reid took to the floor of the Senate Wednesday to launch an attack on a series of ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, according to Fox News. The most powerful Democrat in Congress zeroed in on a “leukemia patient” — Julie Boonstra — saying the ad that shares her testimonial is “false.”

“Stories made up from whole cloth, lies,” Reid added.

Remarks that the majority leader would try to walk back later, following an outcry from GOP lawmakers and Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity.

Even then, Reid reserved his most potent venom for Charles Koch and David Koch, who fund AFP, saying the brothers are “un-American.”

In a written statement, Phillips said: “Sen. Harry Reid stood on the Senate floor today and attacked the character and integrity of every American who had the courage to share how they’re being hurt by the president’s health care law — some of whom are battling serious, life-threatening illnesses.”

U.S. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., called on Reid to apologize to these Americans, Fox News reported.

Thune said Reid “and any Democrat who agrees with him, owes an apology to all Americans who are suffering under this disastrous law and whose personal stories he has dismissed as ‘untrue.’”
