Even with the "troublesome" parliamentary process in the Senate bypassed by naked vote-buying, Democrats still have few issues on which they can muster a 60-vote supermajority. Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader(?) said, without sarcasm, that “it doesn’t speak well” of senators who didn’t secure quasi-legal, earmarked, Health Care Reform side deals for their particular states.

“There are 100 senators here and I don’t know that there’s a senator that doesn’t have something in this bill that isn’t important to them,” Reid said. “If they don’t have something in it important to them then it doesn’t speak well of them.”

In other words, Reid has tax money to buy Senate-Whores' votes, and the Senate-Whores have one vote each. In Reid-think, the Senate-Whores who got big deals (Democrat Landrieu, Louisiana, $300,000,000 or so, she said, and Democrat Ben Nelson, Nebraska, open-ended commitment, conservatively estimated to be worth about $100,000,000) were merely better at gauging just how much the market would bear, and just how much of your money Reid was willing to pay.

Democrats is as Democrats does, but still they just can't get much done, eh, Bill?

Thanks for all of the hard work on this web site. I admit, I have not been on this website in a long time, however it was joy to find it again. It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals! I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
