Landrieu's Vote Will Reveal her integrity (or lack of):

WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's health care bill has millions of dollars to help Louisiana finance Medicaid at a time when he is hoping that state's wavering Democratic senator will support overhaul legislation.

The bill provides at least $100 million for Louisiana in extra funds for Medicaid, the state-federal health program for the poor.

Louisiana's Democratic senator, Mary Landrieu, has said she is undecided about the Democratic health care package. Reid needs the votes of all 60 Democratic senators for the Senate debate to begin.

Reid grew up in Brothels in Nevada.
Reid now runs ACORN payoffs and thus funds kiddie brothels.

Could some of the payoffs be lifetime passes
to the ACORN/Reid/DNC Kiddie brothels?

This whole scheme is getting more and more expensive as time goes on.

I wouldn’t put it past my senator, Specter, to sell his vote as well. He has that kind of integrity, that he’d feel awfully stupid voting “aye” for free if Landreiu is getting paid for it.

He has Landrieu with a $100 million bribe written into the bill as disaster relief for which only Louisiana can benefit.

It is OUR money that he is using for his bribe to Landrieu.

And the tragedy of that is that Mississippi had tremendous Katrina losses too, but, losers because they have 2 Republican senators.

There is something horribly wrong with our Congress when they can use our tax funds to BUY votes to pass bills that the majority of tax payers do NOT WANT.

How long are Americans gonna put up with this corruption? Huh?

If I give Landrieu money, I am bribing her, and I go to jail.

Reid gives her money and it’s “support[ing] overhaul legislation”.

Tell me, what’s the difference?

$100 million....hmmmmmm....

In 1803, the U.S. paid 60 million francs ($11,250,000) plus cancellation of debts worth 18 million francs ($3,750,000), a total cost of 15 million dollars for the Louisiana territory.

Can you spell I-R-O-N-I-C ?????

My tax dollars are not for Harry Reid’s speculation in goofy investments (a nice way of saying that he should not use federal money to bribe a senator to vote a certain way)? If what Reid is doing was done in the corporate world, the corporate employee would go to jail for bribery??????

Congress is a criminal enterprise and most of them should be in jail.

If people voted pro-life, NOT ONE, SINGLE, SOLITARY politician who is a threat to the Constitution would be in office. Landrieu is pro-abortion. Therefore, it will be a massive surprise if she resists this bribe.

For every vote dingy buys, another senator who WAS onboard should say, “I’m bailing. Where’s mine?”

That would justify and actually make Reid a son of a bitch.

Wizard,

I agree completely with you. I wonder if we all file a complaint with the FBI office in Washington DC, if they will do an investigation. Harry Reid, Mary Landrieu and Ben Nelson all need to be arrested for conspiracy to commit bribery, bribery and other charges.

...$100,000,000.

***Let’s At Least Call It What It Is: BRIBERY***
Stardate: 0911.21

Posted on Saturday, November 21, 2009 6:49:14 AM by The Wizard

We may have to put up with a congress that has some prostitutes, but let’s at least call it what it is: Bribery.....

I remember the old days when regular folks went to jail for such things on the radio: play my record I’ll build you a pool....get caught and get fired....

But today we even practice reciprocal bribery: I give you 100 million, you throw me a fund raiser....my, my how we have grown.....

And the real sweetner in this is that these criminals use OUR money to do the bribing......Bowow and Peeelosi bribe the house and Bowow and Reid bribe the senate.....with OUR money to vote AGAINST what we want....

And they wonder if Madame President is good enough or smart enough to be a part of that......I’m amazed she cares enough about WE THE PEOPLE that she would even bother...

At least with a Whore you are getting something you want......with these people you are getting something you don’t want shoved down your throats and paid for with your own money.....

Some in Congress give prostitution a bad name, and I appologize to the hard working women in the “adult services” field for any slight I might suggest by placing some congress people on the same level....they clearly don’t raise that high. “

Are you paying your taxes? If there is something horribly wrong...? If sewage was pouring from your kitchen faucet, depravity from your cable tv, explosive gas from your kitchen range, wouldn't you shut them off?

Instead, all too many are sitting around saying, "Just you wait, sewage! I've got me a stash of antibiotic!...You'll get yours, degenerates, when you come for my daughter I've got a pit bull here!...Make my day, blow the house up, I got a real big firehose I'm hankering to try out!"

So...are you still paying taxes?

As much as I can manage has been invested in Munis for the very purpose of denying the man-child his ill gotten gains.
