Senator Mary Landrieu, Senator Ben Nelson and 100 Million Reasons Obamacare is Disastrous

by the Left Coast Rebel

No pontificating on my part for this one, just a little reporting. I can’t tell you what I think here, I’ll have to keep it to myself. The wholesale sale of your country and health care is commencing. First of TPMDC:

Sen. Mary Landrieu’s state of Louisiana is still ailing years after Hurricane Katrina devastated its largest city. So Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid could be killing two birds with one stone by including in his health care bill $100 million in federal Medicaid aid for any states (aka, Louisiana) that have suffered a natural disaster in the last seven years. That’s much needed help for the poor in Louisiana, and also a sweetener for Landrieu, whose support for health care reform has never been terribly certain.

That appears to be a more justifiable offer from Reid than a separate
concession to Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE), another health-care fence sitter. In a move that appears designed to win Nelson’s initial procedural votes, Reid decided not to include a measure ending anti-trust exemptions for the insurance industry.

Reaganite weighs in with this spot-on take:

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to pray that we can put a stop to this ill-conceived tax-n-control grab by the power-drunk Democrats… you’d think that’s how a supposedly mature democracy would work, seeing that most people oppose it.

Go to Reaganite Republican to read the rest of his take…..

    The Democrats are going to start holding votes on holidays, just to make sure that they get their way.

    But the ends justify the means, right?

    These people have no backbone. Why would anyone want to call such people like these friends? I mean that's what we are talking about. They are the types who stand for nothing but will stab you in the back to get what they want.
