Nelson Letting Down Constituents and His Country in Career Decision
It's about to be official if not already, but Ben Nelson will vote for cloture on the health care bill despite the overwhelming opposition of his constituents. This vote is a CAREER DECISION and we can now safely predict that come January 2013, Governor Dave Heineman will be U.S. Senator Dave Heineman and Nebraska will have a truly conservative senator to replace Ben.
And for Ben, he'd better hope that his president gets re-elected or it's back to the turkey ranch and a less than well deserved retirement.
Here's the U-tube speech: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfcotEPKhKw&feature=player_embedded
