The cost of buying the Senator from Louisiana’s vote? 300 million dollars.
The cost of buying the Senator from Nebraska, Ben Nelson’s vote? 500 million dollars.
The cost of seeing their faces when they are voted out by angry constituents? Priceless.
No, this isn’t the script of a commercial, this is actually happening. Senators are lining up for payoffs for their states in exchange for voting for the still to be seen Health Reform Bill in the Senate. If you live in Arkansas, don’t let Blanche Lincoln cast her vote without hearing your voice. And this is my warning to our readers: If this bill does actually pass (and I think that Harry Reid will make sure that he buys enough votes to make it pass); then watch out for the conference hearing on the bill-they aren’t through trying to sneak things by the American people. Now a warning for Congress: you vote for this bill and other tax and spend bills like it at your own peril. The American people will not forget and we will be lining up at voting booths ready to vote you out!
