Levin Thanks Harry Reid for Helping to Kill Obamacare

Talk radio host Mark Levin gave Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) a big "thank you" on his program yesterday. But, it's not a "thank you" that Harry Reid is likely to appreciate.

Levin lambasted Reid for the Senate Democrats' decision to use the so called "nuclear option" in order to kill the minority party's' ability to block presidential appointments through use of the filibuster.

"The Democrats have violated longstanding rules and the Constitution to impose Obamacare on the nation," said Levin. "They've done the same now to flood the courts with radicals who'll receive lifetime appointments."However, he went on to say that when it comes to  attempts to repeal Obamacare, Reid's actions may in fact help Republicans achieve that goal:

"Thank you, Harry.  You just showed the Senate Republicans how to repeal Obamacare. If they take the Senate in 2014, they should suspend the filibuster rule just long enough to allow their majority to repeal Obamacare by 51 votes as well as Dodd-Frank.  And they can do it again in 2017 if they hold their majority. "

Levin didn't let the GOP off the hook either, saying that Senate Republicans' hadn't responded strongly enough to Reid's actions and should have made a public statement saying that the Senate GOP would remove the filibuster "altogether" when they won back the senate.

"Do the Republicans in the United States Senate have any self-respect whatsoever?  Do they realize they look like a bunch of buffoons and cowards?"
