Really, Senator? Harry Reid: “[Bundy ranch situation] not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and get away with it.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) seems to have a newfound passion for the rule of law. If this is true, he should be writing articles of impeachment against the President for his years of lawless conduct.

When asked his thoughts on the situation by a local reporter after the tense standoff seemingly diffused, Sen. Reid said simply, “It’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and get away with it. So it’s not over.”

Most would agree that breaking the law must have consequences.  The concept of every American being equal under the law demands it.

Of course, this might create some problems for the Obama Administration which has shown a unique disregard for the law—notably, the Obama administration’s whimsical changing of legal deadlines contained within Obamacare, and their IRS illegally targeting the political opponents of Washington’s leftist majority party.

Or—more likely—perhaps Sen. Reid only means to suggest that legal standards apply only to regular folks, and not progressive political elites in Washington, D.C..

It’s important to remember legal double standards such as these, especially on tax day.

Regardless, our eyes are now on Reid to back up his statement with actions on behalf of the law against injustice in Washington—but nobody should hold their breath.
