Conservative radio host Mark Levin has slammed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for implying on Tuesday that the deaths of seven U.S. Marines in a training accident in Nevada was the result of budget cuts in the sequester that began on March 1.
“Harry Reid, you’re the lowest of the low-lives, you know that? You really are at the bottom of the sewer, all the time on every issue….We deserve better than this man. He is a vicious stupid man,” Levin said on Tuesday.
In a statement on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Reid had implied that the sequester was to blame for the deaths, which were caused by a mortar explosion: “These men and women, our Marines were training there in Hawthorne. And with this sequester, it’s going to cut back this stuff. I just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military.”
The Marine Corps attacked Reid’s remark, saying that the Majority Leader was guilty of “political posturing on the backs of those dead Marines.”
The sequester was included in the Budget Control Act of 2011 at the behest of the Obama White House.
