Herb Sobel: Burr irrelevant to party

Burr irrelevant

Recently, I was watching the debate regarding defunding Obamacare. Soon after Sen. Ted Cruz finished his marathon speech eviscerating this law, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rose in support of the Affordable Care Act. During his remarks, Reid quoted our own Sen. Richard Burr’s statement, “dumbest thing I’ve ever heard,” regarding defunding this law.

How to know that you have become genuinely irrelevant as a conservative voice? Get Harry Reid to enlist your very own words to support a liberal/progressive position. Way to go, Sen. Burr!
