    The source says otherwise. If you are going to lie, at least try a bit to make it not so transparent.

    I take quotation marks seriously.
    He was asked why he wouldn't approve funding the NIH since it might help kids with cancer.
    He bobbed and weaved so Bash asked what I posted above and Reid answered what I posted above and then later tweeted what I posted above.
    To me the tweet really makes the story.

    Then he said what he said.
    First he states that it was explained by Chuck Schumer and others.
    Then he says this:
    "What right did they have to pick and choose what parts of government can be funded. It's obvious what's going on here."

    Then he discusses it being about Obamacare.

    Then she reiterates again the question and then he finally says what Fox News apparently claimed he "immediately" said.

    In the OP. There is a link to the story. Why is that hard to find?

    I thought there must be something else because the video supports exactly what I've been saying.
    There is no question about it.

    Fox's only purpose anymore is to foster an angry mob. They promote nothing but anger and hate.

    The level of disinformation, misleading and flat out lies are unreal.

    Bubba, I actually watched it on CNN whereas you probably read it on Fox News and then I linked you the actual conversation. The meat of his explanation was right in the beginning of the exchange, but Fox apparently thought this was how it completely went down.

    But Reid was challenged at a Democratic press conference by CNN's Dana Bash about why the Senate wouldn't consider the NIH bill.

    "If you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn't you do it?" she asked.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., quietly asked, "Why pit one against the other?"

    And Reid immediately chimed in: "Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own."
    Notice how there is absolutely no reference to it being a second question or reiteration, notice how there is absolutely no content about the rationale he attached to rejecting it, notice how they attach the word "immediately" to what was an already-on-going reply.

    Here's what actually happened.

    If you conveniently notice, Fox News placed the beginning of the exchange at the bottom of the page, after what had occurred last. They made it look like it took place on a separate occasion, when it was part of the same exchange, and preceded the part they liked the best. They simply put it backwards to make you think he constructed an argument different from what he actually did.

    Stop trying to claim it was what it wasn't.
