Today’s AYFKM? Award Goes To Ben Nelson For His “The Price Is Right” Vote

The insanity and ‘in-your-face contempt’ of the deal-making going on in the District of Criminals is absolutely appalling to watch.  THIS is healthcare reform when most Americans are completely deadset against it and deals need to be made to buy votes? Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me?

Sen. Ben Nelson’s vote had a hefty price tag; Nebraska will never have to pay for it’s share of Medicaid, ever! That grinds Mary Landrieu’s $300 million into the porch and beyond.

Senator Nelson, you have just played the Price Is Right, and the American people have lost.  I want to personally thank you for handing all of our heads on a platter to the insurance companies who will, once again, have extortion legalized for them through an UN-CONSTITUTIONAL insurance mandate.  I would also like for you to know that if this heinous piece of un-Constitutional legislature passes and gives this administration it’s fascist ‘starter home’, the criminals now voting on legislation in our Capitol better start running for the hills because Americans WILL BE COMING for them.  This will be the last straw…

Coburn: Nelson agreement with leaders ‘threw unborn babies under the bus’

Sen. Richard Burr (D-N.C.) took umbrage with Nelson, implying that he used his anti-abortion stance to help negotiate a better deal for the state of Nebraska. The manager’s amendment released by Reid on Saturday has Nebraska receiving extra Medicaid funds. In an earlier press conference, the Senate leader called it a “minor point” in winning Nelson’s vote.

“You have to compliment Ben Nelson for playing the price is right,” Burr said. “This isn’t the Louisiana Purchase. This is the Nebraska windfall.”

    I sent Nelson an e-mail telling him that the government purchased his vote, and that in my book makes him a traitor to his state and country. I’m sure I’ll be on a list somewhere now.

    • Ca Patriot? I hate to break it to you but I am sure you have quite the file for just being here and commenting as much as you do. Guess what? It doesn’t matter though, they are putting the last straw on the camel’s back right now and it is going to be such a dramatic shift in paradigm that I am pleased they are so traitorous.

  • California Patriot -

    I agree with you on all you just said, DT.

    Thank you for sticking your neck out each day, and thank you for all your hard work on this site.

    • You are so welcome. What else can we do since we saw the disaster of an Obama Presidency and the coming fascist state that Pelosi, Reid and their cronies had planned? How would I be able to sleep at night knowing that I had been a part of condemning our children to a country that is NOTHING LIKE what we grew up in and what millions have died to protect?

  • Keep pluggin Diamond, we’re all in there with you.We haven’t given up yet. Remember Washington at Valley Forge? He was fighting tremendous odds but he hung in there. Our ancesstors fought through blinding snow storms with no coats, no food, and no shoes, but somehow in the end they prevailed.

    • I am cursed with the amount of facts stuffed in my poor little brains. December 23, 1913 the Federal Reserve Act was signed into law. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • California Patriot -

    Did anyone hear the reader of the bill say that they want to build depression centers? Good God, that sounds so Nazi to me.

  • There is a story going around the net that since Nelson and Landrieu got such great deals by holding out their vote for cloture that some other Democratic Senators, who are taking a lot of heat from the people in their State for their
    support of the Health Care Bill, are threatening to change their vote so they can get some of the goodies as well The deal Nelson got was really good. His State will not have to suffer the consequences of all the unfunded mandates of Medicaid that are in the bill that the rest of the States will have to pay for. A lot of States are already going bankrupt so a deal like that would really help their bottom line and make the Senator who held out for such a deal a hero in their State. Any truth to the rummor?

    • If there is truth to that rumor, we will be hearing about it – and it does not surprise me – Mary Landrieu set a precedent for blackmailing the Senate into something and because Harry Reid IS SO FREAKIN’ WEAK the rest of us have to go through hell and high water to get this country back on track. This is one Xmas I will remember for years on oh so many levels.

    • Ron,

      My prediction? They are going to pass this piece of crap before xmas eve and then all hell is going to descend on the House!

  • DC area weather update:
    We’ve been under a blizzard warning all day. All above ground Metro subway and bus service ended at 1 PM today. Reagan National Airport is closed (the one most members of Congress use to get home). It’s still snowing with most areas reporting about 20 inches on the ground. The snow will taper off tonight. The high on Sunday will struggle to get to 32°. There has been no snowplowing in the neighborhoods yet since all plows are on the major roads trying to keep up with the storm. This is the biggest December snowstorm in DC history.

    Personal note:
    My car in my driveway is completely buried. It’s just a bump in the snow. Long icicles are hanging from everyone’s gutters. There are snowdrifts. It’s a winter wonderland. Here’s a little video I took in Feb, 2003, when we had 18 inches of snow:

      • Very nice! I guess it’s about 80° there while it’s 27° and snowing here. I’m not looking forward to digging out.

  • Granny Gripes -

    High Stakes LIARS Poker, we all knew the WHo___s would sell out eventually.

    Why would we even anticipate that one of them would do the right thing?

    DAY ONE JANUARY, everyone march down to opposition candidate’s campaign office, bring along 10 volunteers and do 3 hours a week until election day. tell your 10 to each bring 10 more every week. Plant signs on every piece of turff that you can find. (get permission from the owners) I think it would be easy. go volunteer to “DELIVER” signs, etc.

  • Greetings Slaves and Comrades,

    Signs…great idea how about 15 million people (that’s 2 people in the boomer/senior population out of every 100) with signs on every corner and chanting “Impeach Obama NOW!
    I know your pissed at Nelson…he’s gone anyway…

    hhhmmmmm… OK,so pick a date…
    we cannot wait for elections. It is time!

    (Can I say that?)
