Ben Nelson Becomes Latest Democrat Whore

When push comes to shove Democrats go for the money rather than their principles. Ben Nelson of Nebraska became the 60th vote for Harry Reid and the health care bill after hours of arm twisting and deals in a smoke filled room. Nelson did not get what he wanted with regard to abortion but he got some concessions for his state and the cost of Medicare which means the other 49 states will get cuts while subsidizing Nebraska.

Nelson became the latest Democrat whore who sold out and disregarded what his constituents want in order to side with Democrats in the Senate.

Ben Nelson signed his own political death warrant. He will not be reelected which might have been part of the deal to begin with. Nelson faces a 61%-26% deficit with regard to the number of people who will not vote for him if he votes for the bill. He will not be able to overcome this and he knows it.

Don’t be surprised to see Nelson announce that he is not running for reelection and then don’t be surprised to see him get a job in the administration. Maybe he will get appointed as some kind of czar or something.

Regardless, his seat will end up going to a Republican as will Dodd’s and Reid’s (and probably a few others). There will be no more stranglehold on government by the Commies and Socialists who are trying to ruin this country.

Be funny if all these guys stake their career on this and then lose only to have it all ruled as unconstitutional by the SCOTUS.

This issue is not about YOU. It is about making that child in the White House look like a leader. The bill lacks the public option, the Medicare option and many other things that were removed to buy off votes. Even all the liberal morons who back the Democrats are calling for them to kill this bill.

The libs wanted to overhaul health care but most now believe the bill becomes a payoff to the insurance industry.

How ironic.

At least Nelson got to drop his drawers and bend over for the cause. The Chicago thugs got to him and he lacked the testicular fortitude to stand his ground. Nelson got his 30 pieces of silver, Landrieu got her 300 million pieces and Lieberman got something to get him back in the concentration camp. Maybe they promised to leave his wife alone or threatened to give him a shower, cowards . I can’t figure Lieberman out. They went against him and backed Lamont and they screw him every chance they get but he keeps getting back in line to get screwed..

Well, this will be fun over the next year or so. Obama has made big deals with pharma (a broken campaign promise) and now it appears as if he will screw them in the future. He screwed those who supported him by giving them a watered down health care bill.

Did you notice that they wheeled Senator Byrd in there in a snowstorm for his vote. I agree with Dick Morris that if he wants to be a Senator then he has to do the job but what kind of people would do this?

Been kind of tragic if he died from all of that just so they could get a vote they needed.

Then again, the Democrats don’t really care about people as long as they get what they want. look at how many will lose jobs next November.

I think Republicans will take back both Chambers of Congress.

We can thank people like Ben Nelson for that.

UPDATE: Ben Nelson will not be up for reeelction until 2012. He will go then or if we are lucky he will resign before then. Looks like I might be unfairly casting hookers in a bad light.

    Love it when a plan comes together.

    And I don’t care if Nelson walks with a limp after they got through with him or if he was given a barn full of ponies. Time to kick some healthcare butt so Obama gets his victory dance.

    And conservatives get to line up on the wrong side of history, once again.

    That’s gotta hurt a bit. But realize, your pain, is the nation’s gain. Elections do have consequences don’t they?

      I know you do not care because you are only concerned with the outcome. You, like Nelson, have no scruples.

      Yes, elections have consequences and so do actions. We will have a revolution at the next election.

      What will you do when Republicans gain control and get rid of this? Will you say that elections have consequences or will you cry?

      We will see how this pans out. Maybe if we can knock off all the liberals in this country we will be OK. I wonder if we can start a smack a liberal campaign. That would be kind of fun. The bill still has to be reconciled and that will be a bloody battle.

      I know it does not bother you that deals giving one state more than another or special treatment were made because of what you want but Obama did not get what he wanted. this bill is so watered down that the liberals are against it.

      I personally hope that the liberals end up killing each other over this. As Kos would say, Screw them.

        You’re right. Some of them are. So I am helping to teach some of them too. They need to learn that this is not Canada where a Nader or Kucinich type is a viable national candidate. Having tens of millions of poorly educated right-wing crazy people running around with a Bible in one hand and a gun in the other does have it’s price when it comes time to get something smart and complicated done like fixing healthcare.

        You work with what you have.

        Some of the liberal distortions, while not as insane and dishonest as your regular material, is at times stupid. One commentator put it this way:

        “…so much of the commentary I’ve heard has been really idiotic. Liberals who want universal health care ought to be thanking Harry Reid for getting this thing done rather than talking about what’s inadequate in the bill. I’m not saying the bill’s a good bill, but if you’re a liberal, and you want universal coverage in this country and think that you could do better than Harry Reid, can do better than what he’s done, or the White House can do better, they ought to lay off the hallucinogenic drugs because we have had a vivid demonstration of the limits of political possibilities on this issue.”

        Here is a clip of some liberals talking intelligently about this issue. It gives a basic overview of what we are going to get:

        • Big Dog says:

          You are helping teach them. That is a joke. What could you teach? You have this view that is far from reality and based upon misguided facts and figures that you staunchly defend even when the numbers are refuted by other information.

          I do not want to listen to liberals (or anyone else) telling me what we will get when no one has read the bill and no one actually knows what we will get. I could get an audio of conservatives telling us what we would get and you would say it was hogwash. Why should we take these liberals at their word, as if they know anything?

  2. Big Dog says:

    Of course you are wrong again Darrel. Don’t do a half assed bill. Take the time to get it right.

    And what I put out is accurate.
