Ben Nelson got the sweetest of sweetheart deals. The State of Nebraska will never pay for Medicaid. The 49 other states will pick up the tab. Is there a person out there that is not outraged?
The democrats have obviously made a decision that they don't care how many seats they lose next year as long as this passes. Pelosi will only lose her seat if someone more far left runs against her, so I guess she is in the clear. So what the heck, she will retain her seat and she will get rid of the moderate side of her party. All that will be left is the far left people from the far left districts around the country. This may not bode well for Barbara Boxer, after all, what did she get for California?
The arrogance that this portrays is stunning, simply stunning. Every poll across the country has shown that the American people do not want this bill to be passed.
I think pitchforks are necessary. The democratic leaders of this country have really reached an all time low. Bribery, blatant falsehoods, and total lack of concern for the people that are paying their salaries seem to be the order of the day. 1/6 of our economy is on the line and no one has read the bill. They have no idea if it is actually going to work.
This is a sad day for America, a very sad day indeed.
