Nelson Opposes Jobs Act
Posted: 11:32 PM Nov 3, 2011
Nebraskas Senator Ben Nelson released this statement after opposing the $58 billion Rebuild America Jobs Act.
While I agree infrastructure is a priority, the most important step Congress can take to create jobs is to get Washingtons fiscal house in order. Given that, the Rebuild America bill goes in the wrong direction because it raises taxes for billions of dollars in new spending, said Senator Nelson.

Senate Republicans blocks Obama's jobs plan
The 51-49 vote fell well short of the 60 votes required under Senate procedures to start work on the bill. Every Republican opposed the president, as did Democrat Ben Nelson of Nebraska...
I hope the folks in Nebraska are not that stupid.
The Nebraska hustler needs to go. I trust the good folks in Nebraska will send Nelson out to pasture.
He is a major sellout assclown.
Voted for Hussein’s DeathCare Law. He blows.
Fire Bill Nelson, Hussein worshipper in Florida, too.
The Nelson dorks should be replaced with Constitutionalists.
what are the chances that he’ll get kicked out of office?
Pretty good. His approvals are poor.
Well, he’s not even popular in his hometown. Out west here his a$$ is toast. The liberals in the state tend to cluster around Omaha and Lincoln but there may be enough conservatives to shut them down.
they are not...this has the makings of a real win-win for the GOP; i see no way Nelson wins re-election despite the fact he’ll be out there voting against ayatollah obama’s policies for the next year...
I live in Nebraska.
I look forward to watching Nelson get re-elected in another landslide. :)
(Actually I don’t. I’m just being sarcastic because I’ve lost all faith in my neighbors....)
Good to hear. Ole Ben should be tired of getting jeered-at and ridiculed and just retire, but he’s hooked on the power and perks. Start the rumor that he’s a closet Texas fan and he’ll be run out on a rail!
Awwww. Poor Dems up for election
Nelson, you voted for Obamacare. You’re history.
He'll retire...why go through another campign he's likely to lose, in in the event that he can manage to snooke the people of NE one more time, and win, he'll be in the minority, and that's no fun..nope..he goes..
He’s running. All you have to do is see the huge number of commercials he runs every day to try to blunt the commercials already running against him for obamacare, the cornhusker kickback, etc. He’s certainly financed from out of state big money sources.
According to several stories this week..he has told everyone he won’t decide until about year’s end. And thta’s why the Dems are pissed. If they have ANY siliver of a chance to hold the senate, they have to keep Nelson’s seat. So it’s OUTSIDE sources, NOT Nelson’s campaign..that’s spending all the $$ for the ads you mention.
What a lying sack of @&*%%.
He screws us and then gets rewarded?
Just another day in Obamaland. :)
When Puppet Head sold out for Obamacare, I promised myself I would send some $ to the candidate who runs against him, and I intend to keep that promise. (and I do not live in NE) Nelson is an odious weasel.
Oh, absolutely. In Nebraska we know he isn’t getting much from in-state contributors and his very expensive ad campaign is obviously funded from outside.
Dems are also upset that if he’s NOT gonna run, they can’t get a candidate in place..have you heard if any Dems might make the race?
Since the primary side hasn’t shaken out yet, you might want to wait until we know who our nominee is.
There has been nothing that has caught my attention so far and I read the paper daily from front to back. The only reason he was probably elected the last time around is that the state GOP quietly declined to provide much support if any to the GOP candidate and many so-called republicans indirectly or directly supported bad-hair Ben because he convinced them that he was a conservative running as a democrat. Screw the party establishment, both at the state and national level.
Many thanks...In your opinion..does he run or retire?
He’s an arrogant POS and he is not running all of daily TV and radio advertising just to build a legacy. I also received the same telephone poll three different times last night that were opinion polls for the asshole. The third time they called I asked what the poll was about and they were very evasive. I finally let them have it and told them to tell Ben to shove it and leave the state. He will run.
