Call off the dogs? When all is said and done, these evil politicians from both parties will be lucky if all they lose is their political office.

Nonsense. Nelson sold us and our freedoms out.
We need to stop this bill. The AGs are serving the best interest of their state citizens correctly by defending their legal rights under the constitution.

If Nelson throws his body in the way, too bad.
Apparently, Nelson is still shilling for this bill.
That is what needs to stop.

One could speculate Nelson got a bigger deal, not on paper.

Senator Nelson told the attorney general that it was simply a ‘marker’ placed in the U.S. Senate version of the bill and assured the attorney general that it would be ‘fixed,’ says the memo.

Which means they haven't yet "hidden" Nelson's deal in a set of arcane qualifications that only Nebraska would qualify for -- as they did for Landreiu and Louisiana.

Obviously, Nelson had no idea how his "deal" would be accepted by his constituents. And isn't that the very essence of "being out of touch"? Now, he is only making it worse.

The man is so stupid he doesn't deserve re-election.

from the article:

....“Senator Nelson insisted that he had not asked for the Cornhusker Kickback to be placed in the U.S. Senate version of the health care bill to secure his vote. Senator Nelson told the attorney general that it was simply a ‘marker’ placed in the U.S. Senate version of the bill and assured the attorney general that it would be ‘fixed,’ says the memo....

LMAO. It sounds like the grown up version of "It's not mine. I was holding it for a friend."

and then this:

... The document goes on to say: “Senator Nelson said it would be ‘fixed’ by extending the Cornhusker Kickback (100% federal payment) on Medicaid to every state.”

I had to read the article 2 or 3 times to make sure it wasn't satire. Does Nelson think the SC Attorney General is stupid?

The Republic is dead. It has been for a long time. One of the first steps in killing it was when Senators started being directly elected. Having the Federal Reserve Bank and Income Tax that give the government nearly unlimited funding were the other nails in the coffin.

The only movie/show/etc. that I'll watch that has the insufferable Corey Feldman in it.

Anything else, I'd rather watch snow or a BBC show on the production of aspirin.

He’s screwed in Nebraska ... locally running ads. Video at link, (complete with driveby boo at the end).

http://www.ketv.com/politics/22105195/detail.html

“There’s no government-run health insurance plan here, no government takeover,” he said. “It will benefit the people of Nebraska and it is good for Nebraska. We’ll help protect Medicare and we’ll help lower the cost of health care and it will be budget-neutral.”

Nelson brought up abortion and the so-called “Cornhusker Kickback,” which prompted threats of lawsuits from 13 attorneys general from around the nation.

“There is no effort to try to get something for the state of Nebraska that we’re not going to try to get for all the other states. That’s the understanding with the leadership,” Nelson said.

The senator said he won’t vote for cloture if the language he fought for changes. And he also said he won’t change his vote just to save his job.

“But I can’t make my decisions on the basis of the next election. I can’t, and I won’t,” Nelson said.

I remember what Howard Stern said about Ang and BillySlob: “He must have good coke or a huge d*ck.”

I’ll apply the same logic to Feldman and Vanessa.

I hate tats, especially on women. Look at Megan Fox - WHY THE TATS??? WHY??? It’s like throwing vomit on the Mona Lisa.

blah...

No.

Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter’d with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
Cry ‘Havoc,’ and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.

In Vanessa’s case, it could also be that was a good career move for her at the time, since she was an unknown and Feldman was a hot property in the late ‘80s. And yup, absolutely agree about tats on women, it’s gross and defacement (and ain’t something you can just remove without it leaving a scar). Megan Fox has also had some surgery in addition to those dreadful tats, so she doesn’t look nearly as good as she previously did (and she ain’t on my page, either).

HMMM so if they extend the same deal to the other states doesn’t that raise the price of the bill upwards of trillions of dollars? Tell me again how this is going to bring down the deficiet?

Good point on Vanessa.

I just hate the tats. It really is mutilation. My buddy wanted to set me up with his cousin a few years back. We went on one date, she had tats all over the place, which was too bad because she had a SMOKING, SMOKING HOT body. I’m talking 9.5/10. The tats ruined it for me. Oh and she had the toungue stud too.

What else has M. Fox had done? Nose? Chest looks real.

9.5 out of 10 ? Damn, that is just wrong ! Funny thing is, I don’t necessarily mind piercings on women, because they can always take ‘em out, the hole closes up, no fuss, no muss, no long term scars like tats. I actually think a belly piercing can be nice, so long as the girl ain’t a fat slob with a muffin top. A friend of my former’s had one of those and she was a fat slob, I saw it and almost tossed my cookies.

As for Miss Fox, I think she has had some work done to her nose and chest. I saw the pre-op pics and thought she was far cuter (with freckles and all that, I think freckles are cute).

Compare for yourself, she looks “plastic” now:

And it’s idiotic: it makes no sense. The underlying reality is that the whole cost of this eye-poppingly expensive Federal domination of healthcare will be borne by the suffering taxpayers, one way or another, and NONE of us can afford it.

Nelson’s “solution” is like saying the starving Irish washerwomen can survive by taking in each other’s laundry.

Yes.

And Nelson is from a most WONDERFUL AND BEAUTIFUL STATE.

He let them down; he let ALL of us down; he sold-OUT; he blewit.

My wish would be that all the AGs would respond by each filing in their respective states a felony charge against Nelson something along the lines of “unlawful attempt to persuade a State Official from performing lawful duties.”
