    I guess everyone can be bought.

    Although Nebraskan's are 70% againt the HC Bill and the statement that "Nebraskan's know I can't be bought or threatened." Ben Nelson is a coward and went against his own people.

    It's amazing that the only difference between a hero and a cad is whether or not you agree with what they do.

    Any deal for any state to buy a vote is BS. Why, if this is federal reform should the rules, or benefits vary by state?
    The whole thing is unconstitutional, and nothing more than redistribution of wealth!

    Jeff believes in redistribution of wealth as evidenced by his support for this bill.

    So true. Bush runs up we'll say 4.7 trillion in debt, and not a peep from the righties. Obama spends 290 billion, and its mayhem on the streets!

    Obama wants to provide healthcare for citizens of the US and its communism. Bush wants access to warrantless wiretaps, library and banking records, and its Patriotism.

    Democrats with majorities in both houses by duly elected representatives and a 64% margin president vote on a bill, and its "ramming down someone's throat", when a president who lost the popular vote makes recess appointments, its just getting the job done.

    The inconsistencies in outrage and standards just shoots lethal holes in the right-wing's credibility. But we already knew that. Not that dems are squeaky clean by any means, both parties stink. One just helps the working guy, and the other protects large corporate interests.

    The difference to me is that Senators are elected to represent the people in their district. If 70% of those people tell you to vote a certain way is it really right to vote against them?

    I am more taken aback by the fact that he reassured the people of Nebraska that he could not be bought or threatened. HE WAS BOUGHT. Plain and simple. That makes him not a man of his word, thus a coward, regardless of how I feel about it.

    Not true. While I don't really know what the right thinks about anything, being an independent and all, I remember them clearly railing aginst the social program called prescription drugs.

    While you like to specificaly point out right wing hypocracy without ever holding the left to the same standard, when it comes to President George W. Bush, spending and the rights treatment of that deseves honesty.
