WEEKLY EDITORIAL RECAP

VOTER FURY

Right now, many Americans are clearly angry that lawmakers are not being forthcoming with their plans. Many taxpayers sense that they’re being ignored, and that they’re about to be railroaded. This has infuriated them as much as any proposal to limit their health care choices and burden their offspring with trillions of dollars in additional debt. …

One way to handle public hostility toward health care reform is to give the public more opportunities to vent. But if Sen. Reid and Democrats insist on smiling, shaking hands and saying they value voter concerns, all the while working feverishly behind closed doors to fulfill the statist wishes of their far-left base, then many members of the public will save their worst fury for Election Day.

HERE COMES SANTA HARRY

Just in time for his 2010 re-election campaign, Sen. Harry Reid has transformed himself from “Dingy Harry,” the grumpy, mumbling majority leader, into “Santa Harry,” the cheery, grandfatherly lawmaker who brings presents to all the good little governments in Nevada. …

We’re assured that a vote for Sen. Reid will keep the federal welfare flowing into recession-ravaged Nevada and help the 2011 Legislature continue to expand state government despite the private sector’s inability to sustain it. …

Why should anyone believe Sen. Reid’s promises of future pork when he can’t deliver the bacon today? … Nevada ranks dead last among the states in stimulus education spending and third from last in stimulus transportation spending.
