Selling out the Constitution and the Country

Mary_Landrieu_Senate_portraitSaturday, the socialists in the Senate managed to push the socialization of America’s health care system another key step forward.

And in the process, the rot and corruption of our government was brought more out in the open than ever before…with no shame whatsoever from those infecting our government with decay.

Some are calling it a bribe.

Some are calling it the Louisiana Purchase.

So how much does it take for some U.S. Senators to sell their Constitution and their country?

For Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), it seems that price was $300 million. At least she didn’t go cheap.

And according to Roll Call, Landrieu is proud of the haul of loot she garnered for those she in turn would bribe for votes: the taxpayers of her state:

“I will correct something. It’s not $100 million, it’s $300 million, and I’m proud of it and will keep fighting for it,” Landrieu told reporters after her floor speech. “But that is not why I started this health care debate; I started this health care debate for all the reasons I just mentioned in my statement” on the floor.

People like Landrieu and every other elected official who is willing to ignore, turn their back on and sell-out the U.S. Constitution need to go–whether it is through impeachment, recall, or replacement at their next election.

Our republic cannot long survive this infection with anti-American socialism, or public corruption.

  1. This woman, Landrieu, is the lowest of the low. I sent her a note, even though I do not live in her state, telling her of our disgust and the disgust that millions of other Americans feel about what she did. She is not the only one, as every person who votes for this infernal legislation has no business being in our government.

    No one has pointed out the fact that this provision that was used to bribe Landrieu also applies to the state of Mississippi. During Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans was flooded by breaks in its levees. Mississippi, if anyone can remember past the revisionist history, was the state that Katrina actually struck and cut a path straight up through the center of the state. Katrina completely destroyed almost all of the homes and businesses on the entire coastline of Mississippi for at least a block inland. So, Mississippi would also qualify for that same “disaster area” provision. The difference is that Mississippi's senators are both Republican and are not being bought-off with taxpayer money like the Democrat Landrieu.
