Excerpt: Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was poised to release the latest version of the Senate legislation as early as Friday, but it was unclear what kind of reception he’d get. Labor leaders said the bill was soft on the insurance industry, and former party chairman Howard Dean said he’d vote against it if he were a senator.
All eyes were on the only known Democratic holdout, moderate Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, whose primary concern is that abortion funding restrictions in the bill were too lax. Nelson indicated Thursday he still was not happy but would keep talking with Reid, who needs 60 votes to push through Republican opposition.
Congratulations are in order for Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska who (so far) is sticking to principle in regards to federally funded abortion.
It’s alternately puzzling, amazing, bewildering, and disgusting to observe the strict adherence to moral equivalence practiced by progressive socialists.
Saying prayers in public schools is verboten, but having a “Safe Schools Czar” who not only promotes homosexuality, but favors teaching fourteen year old boys how to “fist” properly is sanctioned by the White House. “Polluting” the environment with carbon dioxide by driving back and forth to a nine to five job is “destroying planet Earth”, but flying to Copenhagen in a taxpayer funded Air Force or private jet is perfectly acceptable behavior, so long as you’re a charter member of the “governing elite”. Eating meat is vile and disgusting because you’re “ruthlessly slaughtering cute furry little animals”, but destroying defenseless unborn human babies through abortion is fine.
These are the same people who scream “keep government out of my body” whenever Conservatives work to curtail abortion, but are dead silent when progressive socialists determine that mammograms for women under age fifty aren’t really necessary. Oh, and that self examination nonsense? You probably won’t find anything by doing that so don’t waste your time.
They profess to favor preventative medicine over disease treatment as the more cost effective method. Yet they’re willing to pay for the destruction of human life with taxpayer funded abortions while preventing life saving breast cancer mammograms.
Enough with the lies, deceit and hypocrisy.
Current “health care reform” legislation has virtually nothing to do with positive reformation of America’s health care system. It has everything to do with the progressive socialist puzzle, of which “health care reform” is but one piece. Once finished, this puzzle is designed to subjugate the American people to the governing elite’s vision of “Socialist Utopia”. All hail Marx, Lenin and Obama!
Please stick to your guns Senator Nelson.
