Senator Harry Reid is the Real Racist

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) made news this week by making the outrageous claim that Republican opposition to Obama could be based on race.

Newsmax reported:

On Friday, the Nevada Democrat told Las Vegas-based National Public Radio Affiliate KNPR that opponents do all they can to make the president’s agenda fail, saying hopes Republicans who oppose Obama do so “based on substance and not the fact that he’s an African American.”

Reid’s baseless racial attack was quickly challenged by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC):

Our country deserves more from those in Washington. I hope Senator Reid will realize the offensive nature of his remarks and apologize to those who disagree with the President’s policies because of one thing – they are hurting hardworking American families.

Reid should know better before dealing the race card. His aggressive support of progressive policies is preferentially harming blacks.

The economic hardship on blacks caused by policies advocated by Reid was clearly evident in Senator Scott’s video on President Obama’s energy policy.

Scott notes higher energy prices resulting from Obama’s failed energy policy is adversely impacting hard working American families, especially those in lower income brackets:

In fact, President Obama’s failed leadership on energy policy will cost every American family more when you buy food at the grocery store, take a family vacation or turn on your air conditioner this summer… This mindset disproportionally affects lower income Americans as energy costs consume a quarter of after tax income for families making thirty thousand dollars or less.

Since blacks have the lowest average income than other demographic groups, they are affected the most by high energy costs.

Opposition to Obama is based on the failures of his policies and has nothing to do with race.

Progressive policies and those that advance them are the real racists.
