Roll Call ^

Posted on 03/22/2010 3:49:03 PM PDT by Retired Greyhound

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) announced Monday evening that he would vote “no” on the health care reconciliation package that was approved Sunday by the House and is expected to hit the Senate floor on Tuesday.

Nelson, who was widely seen as the 60th vote to help Senate Democrats clear health care reform in December, stood by his vote for the underlying, $875 billion Senate bill. But he cited several problems with the reconciliation package

They only need 51 votes. These clowns are running scared. I bet he got approval to make this statement from Harry Reid.

Exactly. He is toast.

The ironic thing is that by voting no he is saying the Cornhusker kickback should stay in the approved legislation.

So who are the other 8 Democrats who will be “allowed” to vote no on the reconciliation bill, in order to still allow it to pass with 51 votes? The Democratic Party is a criminal enterprise that should be prosecuted under the RICO Act.

He is voting no because the Cornhusker kickback will stay in the bill. Even a traitor will hang on to what he has left.

Geesh

The Democrats certainly have a lot of fertilizer. Too bad they can’t grow a conscience.

Why would he vote to repeal his corn-husker kickback? He got precisely what he wanted.

That’s what I was thinking. His “No” vote is actually a “Yes” vote to the special deal he now deplores.

If this bastard is under some illusion that voting ‘No’ on “reconciliation” will somehow atone for his prior sins, he’s terribly mistaken. The legislation that he SUPPORTED is going to become the law of the land, whether he wants us to believe it or not.

The a$$hat moved his office there because he couldn’t take the protests at the old office. Who owns the office building? Is the owner having cars towed or Nelson.

Having the cars of protestors towed is going to help him how? one would have to ask. I suppose it is possible he thinks he has weasled out of his corner. Arrogance will do that.

Nelson is (or should be if the folks in his district aren't complete idiots) FIRED!

He can leave anytime after Nov. 5, 2010.

Actually, does this matter now? The senate bill was approved by the house the impostor will sign it...the reconciliation bill is a joke...who needs it now.

Nelson isn’t fooling anyone.

We all know he has a pass from Reid now to vote as “right wing” as Coburn or DeMint until the end of his term, all to try to fool Nebraskans. “See? See? I’m so, so conSERVative again! See?” Only if Nelson’s vote is critically needed will he be un-freed — and his vote is NOT needed to get 51 on reconciliation.

Not. Fooling. Anyone.

Remember the media hysterics when President Bush wanted to use reconciliation to get his judges confirmed.

Now we get silence from the lying corrupt ba$tard$ is the msm.

There will be 7 more Democrat “Moderatees” who will also vote against reconciliation. And it won’t make one bit of difference, which they already no.

Lieberman and Landrieu will be the next two “moderates” to announce.

They are all so brave now that it doesn't matter, but we see through it all now. You are history, might as well go vote again with your commie butt buddies one more time before being thrown out of office.

You are right. If the Senate does nothing, its still the law of the land.

Don’t allow the Dems to muddy the waters by making YOU think this reconcilliation matters

Actions have consequences, Ben. Are you still getting booed out of restaurants? GOOD.

That’s going to last the rest of your life, loser.
