Bernie Sanders was not on board with the emerging Senate bill saying, "I have real concerns." But Sanders sounded more upbeat about the prospects of supporting the bill this morning after he crowed about landing additional Medicaid funding for six years and $10 billion for community health centers."

The filthy criminal left can be bought like any back-alley thug. Laws and ethics are not part of the radical left. And it emanates from the top down. Their entire existence is based on the illegal and unethical acquisition of money and power.

We are no different now than Cuba, Venezuela and any other dictatorship. We just look nicer, the game is the same. We deserve what we get if we do not rebel and refuse to cooperate.

Somebody should start a thread that names all the senators that voted for this, and what their payoff was.

I bet the dem senators who didn’t hold out for a nice bribe are feeling stupid. C’mon! You’re dems. Suck the country dry. It’s no too late. Call up Harry and tell him you have second thoughts and are thinking of voting against it. Show America you aren’t a chump.

In addition to Bernie Sanders Vermont BRIBE, don't forget:

Democrat Ben Nelson's Nebraska BRIBE

(3) Notwithstanding subsection (b) and paragraphs 5 (1) and (2) of this subsection, the Federal medical assistance percentage otherwise determined under subsection 7(b) with respect to all or any portion of a fiscal year that begins on or after January 1, 2017, for the State of Nebraska, with respect to amounts expended for newly eligible individuals described in subclause (VIII) of section 11 1902(a)(10)(A)(i), shall be determined as provided for under subsection (y)(1)(A) (notwithstanding the period provided for in such paragraph)

- AND -

Democrat Mary Landrieu's Louisiana Bribe

‘‘(2) In this subsection, the term ‘disaster-recovery FMAP adjustment State’ means a State that is one of the 50 States or the District of Columbia, for which, at any time during the preceding 7 fiscal years, the President has declared a major disaster under section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act and determined as a result of such disaster that every county or parish in the State warrant individual and public assistance or public assistance from the Federal Government under such Act and for which ..."
See the ENTIRE subsection here: The $100 Million Health Care Vote? (Actually $300M)


The Equal Protection Clause, part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, provides that the government may NOT "deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws".

These concessions (a/k/a BRIBES) are unconstitutional in that they discriminate against non-Vermonters, non-Nebraskans, non-Louisianans!

Saw on Fox News the Medicaid cost exemption Ben Nelson grabbed for Nebraska will have to be made up by the other states. That’s what’ll help him stay in office.

And Bill Nelson's (D-FL) bribe.

LINK: Nelson successfully tacked on an amendment to the sprawling Senate health care reform bill that would prevent cuts to Medicare Advantage plans offered in high cost areas -- particularly Florida but also New York and California.

It's like they poured out some punch for themselves before they throw a bunch of t**ds in the punch bowl for everybody else.

The good people of Nebraska aren't going to let him get away with selling their freedom out for a mess of pottage.

He is done politically.

Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat, he ran and won on the Socialist ticket. What does anyone expect from him other than Socialism? That’s what he is, and its not even calling him names, its what he was elected as, for Marx’s sake!

Procedures for determining eligibility for Exchange participation, premium tax credits and reduced cost-sharing, and individual responsibility exemptions.

I went to the twitter link for Ben Nelson, and found that the Communist Party has finally posted this 2,074 page monstrosity on the internet (finally). I didn't have time to read it all (of course), but found this gem in the table of contents. This looks like the kind of BS you find in IRS regulations. This could open up a whole new area of practice for consultants and accountants. This GD thing is going to be a DISASTER. OMG we are so screwed.
