Perennial sourpuss Harry Reid finally managed to crack a truly hilarious joke when he declared that his Senate Healthcare Bill is "fully paid for."
Perhaps what he meant to say is that the Democratic votes he needs to ram his plan through have been "fully paid for," including a now-infamous payment of $300 million taxpayer dollars to Senator Mary Landrieu (D-La).
In any event, the Senate gave Harry Reid the 60 votes he needed (all Democrats) to advance his healthcare bill to the next step - so for now, the joke is on us.
