Having run out of sane things to say in support of Obamacare, Senate majority leader Harry Reid has suggested that wanting to "slow down" and think about Healthcare reform is tantamount to supporting slavery.
Interestingly, since Republicans have already been excluded from drafting or revising the Healthcare legislation (and won't vote for it), Reid seems to be pressuring "on the fence" moderate Democrats by accusing them of racism.
Then again, he may not be entirely off the mark - back in 1964, it was the Democrats who attempted a filibuster to prevent the passage of Civil Rights legislation, led by former Klan member (and current Democratic senator) Robert Byrd.
