Harry Reid on the Senate Floor: Koch Brothers ‘un-American’ for anti-Obamacare ads

Harry Reid criticized a pair of billionaire brothers on Wednesday, calling the duo “un-American” as they spread lies about the Health Care Reform bill nicknamed Obamacare.

In a pair of appearances on the Senate floor, the Majority Leader  Nevada became the latest Democrat this election year to denunciate Charles and David Koch.

Reid’s focus was on television ads that are being used against Democratic congressional candidates, commercials that he said misleadingly criticize the health care law.

“When you make billions of dollars a year you can be as immoral and dishonest as your money will allow you to be,” Reid said. “It’s too bad that they’re trying to buy America, and it’s time that the American people spoke out against this terrible dishonesty of these two brothers who are about as un-American as anyone that I can imagine.”

Reid said the ads were misleadingly”It’s easy to do if you have no conscience and are willing to lie.”

The brothers’ representatives said Reid’s attack was “disgraceful” and accused him of attacking people hurt by the 2010 health care law.

The Koch brothers are financial backers of the conservative Americans for Prosperity, which has spent at least $27 million already on television ads criticizing Democrats.
