    Re: Senate votes to protect oil company subsidies

    Let me tell you something about Harry Reid. This POS is MY Senator. He almost single-handedly has made sure that my State does not diversify and that any money flowing to/through Nevada goes to his buddies in the Casino business.

    But he is clever and his opposition is not. In the 2010 elections, many of us Nevada citizens were so disgusted with him that we were ready to throw the bum out. So, what did the Republicans do? They select a complete crackpot to run against him with a message against drinking and GAMBLING. Yeah, right. That's just what we needed. So, by default, he handily won re-election.

    And he's doing it again. He knew that this bill wouldn't fly. So, now the Republicans are the official protectors of these poor, impoverished OIL COMPANIES and Dirty Harry is the DEFENDER OF THE WORKING MAN. Since there are more working people (or non-working) people than there are Maybach owners, you can see where the next election is going. So, we will have 4 more years of this lame Obusha because the Repugnantcans have outsmarted themselves just to make sure 4 billion dollars stays in the hands of their precious 1%.

    It's just depressing.

    Next time read the actual article.
    The headline was enough.
