I know. I already reported on this but, there's more.
In an interview with Mary Katharine Ham: "Right now, Ben Nelson sounds like me on this bill. Exactly what does he like about it, and is there any realistic chance he can be convinced in a week?"
From Leavenworth: (it's a new poll for Nebraska) What makes Ben nervous? A new poll.
Then there's this:
"In general, do you favor or oppose President Obama’s plan to expand health care coverage to most Americans even if this plan increases the role of the federal government in health care and increases the cost of the deficit?"
A bit of a loaded question, maybe, but look at this follow-up:
"If Senator Ben Nelson votes in favor of this plan, would that make you more likely or less likely to support Senator Nelson when he runs for re-election?"
More likely: 26%
Less Likely: 61%
Sixty-one percent?! Now THAT will give Nelson some pause. [...]
Senator Nelson will taank in 2010 if he joins on with the unconstitutional federal health care Bill.
[...] "If it's not at the point where I think it needs to be with the improvements that I'm pushing — and they've made a lot of them — then I will not vote for cloture on the motion to end debate," Nelson said in an interview on KLIN radio in Nebraska.
"There's a lot of improvement on the legislation but the basic question on funding for abortion hasn't been answered yet," he said. [...]
Constitution? CONSTITUTION? We don't need no STINKIN' CONSTITUTION! And there's Obama wanting to close the #1 SAC AFB in the known universe if Nelson will not pass the Obamacare nightmare. Impeach the bastard!
On the notion of cloture? Yes. Otherwise, no. Contact Nelson and get this damned thing deadified. Tea Party? Get with the program here! Check the link above for the contact areas.
Nelson and many others are fighting the 25% of the Nation...they just scream louder than anyone else....
In a stunning reversal of fortune for President Barack Obama, top progressives are attacking the health-reform plan moving through the Senate as “hollow,” “unsupportable” and a sellout to corporate interests.
Republicans, after plotting for months to sink the signature legislation of Obama’s first year, suddenly think that Democrats might wind up doing it for them.
Most dangerously for White House chances of assembling 60 Senate votes, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean launched a third day of attacks on the emerging bill, arguing in a Washington Post op-ed that it meets none of his benchmarks for “real reform.” [...]
Real reform? What. The unconstitutional reform? Is that what they want. Yes, it is. Blood in the streets time, I say. Howard Zinn and that jerk wad at SEIU have already declared the blood flow is coming so why not just meet them in the streets? Get it over with.
