NELSON, TO PREVENT PUBLIC FUNDING OF ABORTION, APPROVES PUBLIC FUNDING OF EUTHANASIA
by John Charlton
(Dec. 19, 2009) — The Los Angeles Times is reporting tonight, that Nebraska Senator Bob Nelson, who was threatened by the White House with the loss of a major military installation in his state if he did not back the Health Care Reform Bill, has caved to pressure and, in the name of obtaining Reid’s approval to remove the public funding of abortion from the bill, has signed on as the 60th Senator, to pave the way for the passage of the bill in the U.S. Senate by Christmas.
The most dangerous aspect of the Bill is not its provisions for the control of health care decisions; provisions which effectively give the government license to murder anyone in the country, on the excuse that the cost of their health care needs exceeds the value of their life.
No the most dangerous aspect of the bill is the same as the most dangerous aspect of the so called Financial Reform Bill which passed the U.S. House a week ago: the unprecedented conveyance of power to the Executive Branch.
Barack Hussein Obama, the usurper, and an openly Marxist, American-hating, de facto dictator, will have with the passage of both bills, complete authority over the economy.
With his proven track record of corruption, egomania, and tactics of violence and intimidation, once he has this power, you can be sure he will use it against whomever he perceives as his enemy. And from the events of the Spring, we know that is nearly all of main street America: whom his Department of Homeland Security named as terrorist suspects.
Regarding Nelson’s surrender, Levy and Hook, writing for The Los Angeles Times report:
Until late Friday night, Democratic leaders — while outwardly optimistic — had been unsure they would be able to persuade the famously independent Nelson to come over, according to sources familiar with the talks.
They had pledged to provide additional aid to his home state to offset the cost of expanding Medicaid insurance for the poor. (Most other states have had to split that cost with the federal government).
And they promised to help shield some nonprofit insurers from a new excise tax on the industry. But for days, they could not find a way to break the abortion impasse.
Negotiations resumed in Reid’s offices just off the Senate chamber at 9:30 a.m. Friday morning, after a long night that had culminated in a 1:01 a.m. vote on a defense appropriations bill.
America’s Right is reporting that the Bill will go to a vote on Christmas Eve:
Procedural votes will come at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday and 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday. The vote for final passage will come at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday night. That’s Christmas Eve
