"Do You Feel Like a 'Rare Exception'?
"Harry Reid, a man with his finger on the pulse of the people:
VAN SUSTEREN: "Why do you think that there was such — and I don't want to use a term that overstates it, but there were an awful lot of people who didn't like it. More people were unhappy, I think, with the bill, the health care bill, than were happy with it. Why do you think that?"
SEN. HARRY REID, D-NEV, SENATE MAJORITY LEADER: "Because the loud minority made a lot of noise. Now that the legislation passed, it is amazing how much different people attitude is. I mean traveling on an airplane people are so nice to me. We have people — it wasn't that way before . . .
". . . So everybody acknowledges with rare exception that what we did was terrific, and if there are some problems in out years we'll be happy to look at them."
"Got that? Opposition to the health-care bill is the 'rare exception.'"
(The last poll in Nevada puts the "rare exceptions" at 62 percent.)
"By the way, Senator Reid, they're called flight attendants, and they're paid to be nice to you."
