Nebraska Senator Ben “Cornhusker kickback” Nelson Now Says … “We should have waited on health care”
What a Statesman …
“I think it was a mistake to take health care on as opposed to continuing to spend the time on the economy”
Now, now Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson says that “we should have waited on healthcare?” Actually Senator Nelson, the time to have said that would have been before you took the “Corn Husker” kickback from Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and voted for the disastrous piece of legislation.
What a statesman you are Senator Nelson for coming out and saying this now as opposed to actually opposing the bill as the people of Nebraska wanted you to do. Why did you not tell Obama and Reid to focus on the economy first and you would consider healthcare later?
Sen. Ben Nelson said Tuesday it was a mistake for the Obama Administration to take on massive health care reforms in 2009, and suggested efforts would have been better spent addressing the economy.
Nelson, who provided the crucial 60th vote to advance the bill toward Senate passage on Dec. 19, has been active ever since trying to explain his actions to Nebraskans. Ads have aired on television and Nelson is making the rounds with the state’s media.
He requested Tuesday’s interview with the Tribune.
“I think it was a mistake to take health care on as opposed to continuing to spend the time on the economy,” he said.
Make no mistake about it Senator Nelson you made your bed … you will be voted out of office in 2012 and there is no damage control you could ever do to prevent it. You had yous opportunity to do the right thing and you failed miserably.

nelson may have been threatened by the obama thugs & maybe even his family too.
with as many criminal minds that the democrats have in their barn, i wouldn’t put it past them to threaten and strongarm their own kind to get this illegal reform passed.
this is why we have such a weak link in our government. they only have their own personal agendas first and foremost. the taxpaying citizens mean nothing more than a way for the government to steal our resources.
Shutting the barn door after the e horse is out.
1. super dave,
As much as I would like to villainize the BO Admin to the level of being capable of threatening the infliction of physical harm on Nelson and his family, I don’t see that being necessary when he can be bribed with pork $$$’s. It is not BO’s money, so what is it to him if he spreads some Nelson’s way.
What went wrong was Nelson’s inability to read the tea leaves well enough to know that his constituents wouldn’t want to be bought off with their own money.
Wipe first then poop sounds like one of obamanos boys alright BACKASSWARDS !!!
Know why Jimmy Carter voted for Obama?
Because ole Jimmy didn’t want to be the worst president in history.
Getting old but still a good one for those that have not heard it:
What is the difference between obama and God ??? God does not think he is obama !!!
