Harry Reid and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Reid and the Chamber of SecretsIt seems like the Republicans have failed to stop the Obamacare bill from making its way to the President’s desk to sign sometime early next year.  In a rare occurrence, the Democrats have not been able to peel off one RINO from the Republican party enabling them to call this a bipartisan bill.  Maybe that is because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has written the legislation in a secret chamber somewhere in Washington.  His amendment was only released to the Senate after he completed the bribes to Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson.  The  Wall Street Journal calls this a “Change That Nobody Believes In.”

Whores and Prostitutes (as a metaphor)

Ben Nelson moneyThe health care legislation speeding train has been getting Americans upset for the last few weeks.  Neither the left or the right are happy as the left wants so much more from the legislation and the right just wants you to die (at least according to Florida’s Rep. Grayson).  The story over the last week centered around Nebraska’s Senator Ben Nelson who was holding out, allegedly, over issues in the legislation relating to federal funding of abortions.  The lame stream media often cast him as a man under extreme pressure and most photographs illustrated this vision.
