“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Nelson Feels the Heat on Health Care Sell-out

Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE)

It’s a good thing Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) doesn’t have to face the voters for another three years.

Rasmussen Reports finds that in a hypothetical race between Nelson and Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman, Heineman would beat Nelson 60-30%.

Why such appalling numbers for a man re-elected just three years ago with 61% of the vote?

It’s called “selling out your constituents to socialism.”

Nelson’s health care vote is clearly dragging his numbers down. Just 17% of Nebraska voters approve of the deal their senator made on Medicaid in exchange for his vote in support of the plan. Overall, 64% oppose the health care legislation, including 53% who are Strongly Opposed. In Nebraska, opposition is even stronger than it is nationally.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters in the state believe that passage of the legislation will hurt the quality of care, and 62% say it will raise costs.

Apparently allegations that Nelson was threatened with the potential closure of Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha in exchange for his vote didn’t garner him any sympathy from the little people.

Will people remember this sell-out in 2010?  The way people are now awake to the sell-out of our country by these socialists in Washington D.C.?  Oh yeah.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is also in the dumps for his re-election hopes next year, down by double-digits in the polls already. He’s on target to join former senator Tom Daschle as a former leader of the Democrats in the Senate.

And just over the Christmas weekend, a passer-by let Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) know that he wouldn’t be re-elected for selling out the Constitution and the people.

It’s looking uuuuugly for the socialists in Washington.  The Battleground Poll shows it is, as does President Obama’s approval rating, with most Americans stating health care will be a big influence on their vote, and the mood of the country showing historic outrage against Washington.

My, my!  2010 is shaping up to be one interesting year!
