The little girl in Washington DC, otherwise known as Senator Harry Reid, apparently doesn’t feel that his position as a public servant extends to answering basic questions from the press. When Jason Mattera calmly approaches Reid and his entourage, Harry Reid’s response is one that would make Kanye West proud. Reid and his liberal cohorts have made lifetime government careers by deriding the wealthy and doing their best to create a class envy among Americans in exchange for promises of redistribution. They’ve spent years pitting the “haves” against the “have not’s”- all while amassing their own amounts of personal wealth.
Jason Mattera, author of the explosive new book CRAPITALISM: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars, recently caught up with Reid and asked him, “How did you become so rich working in government?” The senator refused to answer.
Mattera, who publishes Daily Surge, followed up. “How does someone on a government salary most of their career accumulate your type of wealth?” Still, there was no answer from Reid.
Suddenly, one of the Majority Leader’s bodyguards intervened. “Are you press?” he asked, before shoving Mattera and then pinning him against a wall.
“What are you doing holding me up like that?” Mattera asked the bodyguard.
After the author identified himself as a member of the press, the bodyguard retorted, “I don’t care if you’re press or not.” The man refused to give Mattera his name….…With a net worth as high as $6.7 million — and living arrangements that include permanent accommodations at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C. — Mattera believes taxpayers deserve answers about how Senator Reid made all his earnings while living on a government salary.
