Harry Reid can dish it out, but he can’t take it. The Senate Majority Leader drones on and on, day in and day out, in that same talcum-powdery voice about the abusive Koch brothers, whose only “abuse” is donating funds to groups and causes that Reid doesn’t personally approve of.
Reid is one of the Democrats called out for his hypocrisy in Jason Mattera’s newly released book “Crapitalism: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars.” Despite drawing $193,400 annually in salary (which is nothing to sneeze at), Reid has an estimated net worth of $6,806,026 in 2010, according to Open Secrets.
It seemed inevitable that these two irresistible forces, Reid and Mattera, should eventually clash.— which they did in this video. In it, Jason asks the very reasonable question, “How does someone on a government salary most of their career accumulate your type of wealth?” Reid, whose back was to Jason, was silent for a change.
When Jason pressed, one of Reid’s “bodyguards” intervened. “Are you press?” he asked, shoving Mattera against a wall and pinning him before he had a chance to answer.
