Evidence that I'm not nearly cynical enough:
On Saturday, Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Grifter) announced that he would provide the deciding vote in favor of ObamaCare. In exchange–and yes, that is how it was framed–taxpayers in the other 49 states will forever pay the costs of Medicaid expansion in Nebraska. Oh, and non-profit insurance companies in Nebraska will be exempt from a new tax imposed on insurance companies in the rest of the country.Another great comment:
You can't even dignify this squalid racket as bribery: If I try to buy a cop, I have to use my own money. But, when Harry Reid buys a senator, he uses my money, too. It doesn't "border on immoral": It drives straight through the frontier post and heads for the dark heartland of immoral.We'll just say that this has me thinking very unchristian things about rope, lampposts. At the very least, it's a shame tarring and feathering has gone out of fashion (and would probably get one imprisoned for assault).
