BEN NELSON SOLD OUT HIS COUNTRY, and he ensured the murder of potentially hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of American babies that will never be born. We were all fooled. We thought this man was principled. His vote was sold for guarantees for his state to extend full and permanent funding to everyone below 133% of the federal poverty level. The bill requires all states to do so. Nebraska alone would not be required to pay a portion of the additional costs after 2016. So the rest of the country gets to foot the bill for Nelson’s irresponsible cowardice and reprehensible lack of character.
Harry Reid also porked up other Senators with YOUR money, such as that champion of amendment withdrawal Bernie Sanders, to keep him shut up about the public option… the cake topping the ultra Maoist wing of the party is looking for. While Senator Nelson was busy looking for political cover so he could sell out his constituents and his country, good ole’ Dingy Harry was making sure generations of unborn human babies would stay that way. Under Reid’s latest 383 page amendment, THERE IS NO PROHIBITION ON ABORTION COVERAGE.
In federally subsidized plans participating in the exchange, everyone enrolled in one of these plans must pay a MONTHLY ABORTION PREMIUM.
The Reid bill continues to defy the will of the American people. The supposed opt out option is a SHAM, because it does nothing to prevent the states opting out from having to pay for the ones permitting abortions.
Clearly, conservatives have our work cut out for us. With passage of this health care monstrosity all but certain now that Nelson has turned, barring a 12th hour surprise, we have to ensure that every single Senator and Representative that voted for it pays the ultimate political price for it.
