Reid (D-Nev.) said Tea Party Republicans are preventing progress on an energy efficiency bill by offering amendments on ObamaCare and other unrelated issues.
“We’re diverted totally from what this bill is about. Why? Because the anarchists have taken over,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “They’ve taken over the House and now they’ve taken over the Senate.
“People who don’t believe in government — and that’s what the Tea Party is all about — are winning, and that’s a shame.”For someone supposedly so smart, Reid is pretty stupid. Anarchists don't want to take over, they want to be left alone to live their own lives as they see fit without interference from an out-of-control state. And while there may be folks in the Tea Party with anarchist/voluntaryist leanings, for the most part they've bought into the fictitious two-party system. They think that elections can really effect change. All this wrangling over defunding "Obamacare" is pointless. The real problem is a lying, murdering, thieving political class which thinks they know best how we should live our own lives.
