Senate Dems reach 60 vote threshold on health bill

Senate Dems reach 60 vote threshold on health bill
WASHINGTON (AP) – Democratic leaders secure the support of Sen. Ben Nelson to provide the 60th and deciding vote for sweeping health care legislation in the Senate, capping a year of struggle and a final burst of deadline bargaining on President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.

Nelson, D-Neb., said he made his decision after winning fresh concessions to limit the availability of abortions in insurance sold in newly created exchanges, as well as tens of million in federal Medicaid funds for his home state.

“I know this is hard for some of my colleagues to accept and I appreciate their right to disagree,” he said at a news conference in the Capitol, referring to the abortion issue. “But I would not have voted for this bill without these provisions.”

He also noted he had successfully fended off attempts to provide for a government-run insurance option to compete with private insurers.

Senate Dems reach 60 vote threshold on health bill

“It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.” ~Ronald Reagan~

Prostitution – noun
1. the act or practice of engaging in sexual intercourse for money.
2. base or unworthy use, as of talent or ability.
3. The act or an instance of offering or devoting one’s talent to an unworthy use or cause.

That would be the Definition of Prostitution at Dictionary.com. There are even more graphic ways to illustrate the definition of prostitution. The way Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska sold out to the healthcare bill is one illustration.


Sen Ben Nelson (P) Nebraska

I’m guessing that my readers are going to realize, the (P) following Sen. Nelson’s name stands for nothing other than PROSTITUTE!

There’s no other way to describe the actions of Sen. Nelson, when you SELL yourself you have just engaged in an act of prostitution, and a SELL OUT is exactly what Ben Nelson has become. Special considerations regarding Medicare and Medicaid costs for Nebraska was all it took to buy off Nelson. The rest of America doesn’t matter to him, but the concessions that the Senate was willing to give him, and his state, for his 1 vote on the healthcare debacle, was all it took.

And recently, we found out exactly what it took to get Mary Landrieu (P) of Louisiana to lay down and do whatever the Dems wanted done. $300 MILLION dollars was her price.


Sen. Mary Landrieu (P) Louisiana

Sure, she did it in the name of helping Louisiana, even though that help is doubtful at best, but the point is this, she SOLD her vote for $300M, and screwed the rest of America in the process.

Staffers on Capitol Hill were calling it the Louisiana Purchase.

On the eve of Saturday’s showdown in the Senate over health-care reform, Democratic leaders still hadn’t secured the support of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), one of the 60 votes needed to keep the legislation alive. The wavering lawmaker was offered a sweetener: at least $100 million in extra federal money for her home state.

And so it came to pass that Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor midafternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote — and to trumpet the financial “fix” she had arranged for Louisiana. “I am not going to be defensive,” she declared. “And it’s not a $100 million fix. It’s a $300 million fix.” SOURCE

But lets be totally honest with ourselves, Nelson and Landrieu are NOT the only WHORES in the U.S. Senate, and in our Congress as well. Just look at the quote in the top of this post, the one from Ronald Reagan regarding the 2nd oldest profession, and it’s striking resemblance to the oldest.

America is about to get screwed, by the American government. That makes us the John here folks, and you know, many thought that prostitution was only legal in Nevada.

And speaking of legalized prostitution and Nevada, WHO is the leader of the Senate? And WHO is the ramrod of the healthcare debacle that is being forced through the Senate, and onto the American people?

Sen. Harry Reid (D-P) Nevada. (D) for Dem and (P), in this case, stands for PIMP

    Prostitution in far too good a word for these two bit ho’s, guess I have to cross out the two bit thing, for their price is much higher and who pays for all the frills these and others get, yep we the tax payers. Fred I’m sick of these jerk offs in congress and honestly I will almost enjoy the train wreck that coming although I’m on that run-a-way monster. I just want the engineer and the crew to die in the crash and never be heard from of again. And now after spending the country into bankruptcy that pig faced bitch of a whore-monger in the House is suddenly saying she will watch spending this next year—she finally figured out that 2010 is an election year and all the bitches in her stable will have to stand for re-election. Change is in the air. These bastards have done their damage its our turn now so loose the dogs of war. You got on this story quick and you framed it just right. Enjoy reading your stuff, although I wish the news was better, but Fred our time will come and we will have our day in the sun and God’s rain will wash Obama’s slime from our nation.

    We KNEW when these Socialist/Marxists/Communists/Progressives got hold to our government they would turn the US into a third world hell hole. We KNEW THAT! What we didn’t know is that they would do it in ELEVEN MONTHS!

    Now — we have almost the same amount of time to make damn sure we clean the house next November!

    Fred,

    It looks as if someone is looking to punt OweUseless from the Douchebag of the week pulpit!!!!!!

  5. comment number 5 by: angrywhitedude

    Fred, I told you they would pass ObamaCare..no matter what. If Douchbag Harry hadn’t been able to buy Nelson off, he would have gone for a reconciliation vote. The Dims have just killed the Democratic party for a generation. And wait! There’s more to come!

    I cannot believe how tough this is. A death in the family and a death of my nation. The nation can still be saved with a miracle transition of our congress. I could use a little hope from somewhere.

    Thanks for reporting this in such a clear fashion.

    This is truly a sad state of affairs…..”We the People” have been totally and completely ignored through all of this!!! I’m still praying that God will give one or more of these folks some backbone, when the actual cloture vote happens. I’ve read blogs and signs that say “Jam it down our throats in 2009 and well jam it up your ass in 2010.” Good sentiment…I feel exactly the same way and intend to do everything in my power to help the Conservatives in this country do just that!!!!

    However, I ‘ve been mulling something over in my mind for quite some time actually……these are Congress Critters, who enjoy being in the “Seat of Power”, Members of the Ruling Class, able to vote themselves a raise, nice healthcare package, good retirement, if they so chose……Just Why Would They Want to Jeopardize All That…..knowing we’ll remove each and every one of them……I been wondering if the “FIX IS IN????…..or If THERE REALLY WILL BE A 2010 ELECTION??!!…..Lots of Meetings Behind Closed Doors with the Administration…..Just sayin………

    May need more ammo after all!!!!

    KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY!!!!

    Txsonofliberty……………
    There’s either going to be an election in 2010 or there will be blood shed!! A lot of blood. I read a LOT of blogs during the day and what I am reading is, it’s getting close and I do mean close.
    From nelsons speech: (the prick)
    “I know this is hard for some of my colleagues to accept and I appreciate their right to disagree,� he said at a news conference in the Capitol,

    I know this is hard for some of my colleagues to accept!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fuck you and your colleagues, what about your constituents you birdbrained piece of dog shit? Don’t they matter? They’ll show you who matters when election comes around. Frankly, I hope they don’t wait that long.

    Vigilante, I am reading many blogs and talking to many people, and I agree with you. The boiling over point is rapidly arriving. I WILL NOT stand for this and am ready to do whatever it takes to stop these bastards from destroying my country. Americans will not take this and the revolt is visible on the horizon.

    These are dark times in America….

    I wonder, should we start spelling it AmeriKa?

  12. comment number 12 by: Wild Thing

    My heart is sick for our country. Our beloved America.
    I wish those that obviously do not love this country and
    only seek to destroy it would get the heck out, including the marxist in office in our White House.

    I guess this only goes to show that Colfax whores are indeed everywhere…

  14. comment number 14 by: Mr Pink Eyes

    That is a great quote by Ronald Reagan, and this shows us that it is all too true.
    I just have one question, if this bill is so good and if it is going to save us money, how come so many senators needed to seek protection against rising costs? Even Harry Reid made sure that he protected his state, this is no damned aggravating!

    Have to wonder what will be next from the Whores R Us Store…
