Rather than seeing what you can get for SC from the rest of the country, how about paying your own bills?
Spoken like a true member of the black caucus. Hey, Jimmie, how about reparations? How about some cold cash in your freezer?
Clyburn is the north end of a southbound horse.
NPR: I cant (unintelligible) youve asked the South Carolina attorney general to look into a deal that secured the 60th vote from Democrat senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska in favor of ending debate on the health care bill; isnt that just Senate wheeling and dealing ah normal way things are done?This transcript doesn't put across the snarkiness of the NPR reporter's tone.
Senator Graham: Well, you know, its OK for a senator from any state to advocate for that state. Once the Federal Government puts money on the table in an appropriate fashion, its OK to go get your fair share. What I dont think is OK is for a senator to basically agree to a bill that increases taxes on 49 states and say I will vote for that bill if youll exempt my state. Thats crossing the line.
NPR: Because Nebraska got an exemption
Sen. Nelson: Yeah. Basically the bill expands Medicade eligibility to 133% above poverty. In my state of South Carolina therell be about 500,000 new enrollees if this bill becomes law. Its a billion-dollar increase in terms of the matching requirement for South Carolina; that billion dollars comes from the citizens of my state and the problem I have is that its a burden that we cant afford to bear. Its going to be passed on to every other state except Nebraska.
NPR: But is is asking the South Carolina Attorney General to look into it is that a a very dramatic form of press release, or do you really expect a criminal investigation
Sen. Graham: Well no, I think its a legitimate issue, and to exempt one state, I think, raises a constitutional issue It certainly doesnt pass the smell test.
“”Rather than sitting here and carping about what Nelson got for Nebraska, I would say to my friends on the other side of the aisle: Let’s get together and see what we can get for South Carolina,” Clyburn said....”
Shut your fat, socialist, pig mouth, scumbag. You are a disgrace to South Carolina.
The AGs of those States should arrest and prosecute those that took such bribes.
