Nelson to oppose reconciliation package, cites student lending bill(I needed a laugh)
The Hill ^ | 3/22/10 | Alexander Bolton

Posted on 03/22/2010 4:32:29 PM PDT by mdittmar

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) said Monday he would vote against a reconciliation package that included changes to healthcare reform and student lending legislation.

Nelson said he opposed the package because the student lending bill would make the federal government the originator of student loans, replacing private lending institutions. Nelson said that would cost 30,000 jobs.

I don’t believe anything any Democrat says. Especially Nelson.

Nelson said that would cost 30,000 jobs.

This is because the federal goverment is SO much more efficient than the private businesses that are currently managing the program?

They don’t need Nelson’s vote. They only need 51 votes. They never could have foisted this healthcare takeover on the country without Nelson’s vote!! Never forget!

“They don’t need Nelson’s vote. They only need 51 votes. They never could have foisted this healthcare takeover on the country without Nelson’s vote!! Never forget!”

Exactly right, Nelson is no different from Bernie Sanders, only he votes conservative when the Dems don’t need his vote. This guy is as much a rat as the rest of them.

He’ll claim to vote against it because it will never make it to the Senate once BO/BS signs this unconstitutional, socialist BS!

Don’t hold your breath, Ben. A bill is already passed. Reconciliation ain’t gonna happen. You will not be redeemed.

Don’t sweat it, Ben. We will grant the citizens of every state in the Union (except yours) and exemption from paying back the loans. The citizens of Nebraska can pay back the loans for everyone.

...he would vote against a reconciliation package that included changes to healthcare reform and student lending legislation... (until all Nebraska students are given free tuition for perpetuity). Fixed it.

Well, Nelson joins Blanche Lincoln in the shameless hypocrisy and blatant cowardice club. It takes nerve, or something, to support this monstrosity every step of the way and then pretend to be taking some principled stand against the reconciliation bill after all the damage has already been done (with their unwavering help).

Magically they will still get 50 votes... and of course... only by pure coincidence... the 10 no votes will come from the 10 most vulnerable democrats, because they think people are stupid, but we are not stupid, and we are watching.

The federales will simply put the debt servicing work out for bid. It will then be done by the lowest bidder.

Obama and his running dog lackeys assume that will cost $61 billion less.

Bwahahahahaha.

Wait, wasn’t the student loan thing in the original senate bill? If so, he already voted FOR it.

Sort of like Lori McQuaid, after she was busted in Total Recall.

"But Honey, I'm your wife, I wouldn't betray you".

Arnold then delivered one of his classic lines, however, that might be construed as threatening if applied here.

Nelson and a few others can vote nay now as they only need 50 Plus Biden to pass the recon bill if it comes to a vote.

But the very idea that a Sentor rejects a proposal because it would be more efficient and save the public money is absurd.
