    Healthcare aside, do you think he needs to resign for his comment about Obama? I'm sure the answer to this is no, or at least for anyone who isn't a partisan-hack that is. Same thing with Ensign and Sanford, they shouldn't be asked to resign because of their scandals, unless it directly affected their governing ability.

    Since when is free speech a violation of the constitution? Tell me true.

    Well if it was me I would for the good of the party, on the other hand it's up to Reid. Reid didn't violate anything in this regard but, that said this will neutralize Reid in criticizing any of his opponents if they misspeak now or in the future. Reid should also realize that he also neutralizes the entire democratic party in this regard. Bottom line no he doesn't have to resign.

    In regards to healthcare, not his comments about Obama.

    How did he violate the constitution about health care? Did Eisenhower violate the constitution when he proposed the US Interstate system?

    Just because it doesn't say we can provide socialized health care in the constitution means nothing. What's important is that it is not forbidden by the Constitution.

    In fact, there are no laws against being a socialist and or communist for that matter.

    And I will take this solid advice and not stretch it, I'm not calling for Reid to step down or apologize, it was a poor choice of words we all make them.

    I will remain justified.

    And you will remain consistent when the next Republican has the race card played on him, you'll likewise be asking people not to stretch it. Right?
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
