I said a Senator could be bought for $100 million…
Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor mid afternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote — and to trumpet the financial “fix” she had arranged for Louisiana. “I am not going to be defensive,” she declared. “And it’s not a $100 million fix. It’s a $300 million fix.”
Now I wonder what we will ‘pay’ for Blanche Lincoln’s vote… This is as bad as athletes, all have to get paid more than the one before them! Will her final price be $400M, or $600M? All I know is that I REALLY don’t want for myself, my children, and my grandchild to have to pay the bill!
It has become obvious to me, these people really don’t care about us; all they care about is power, and how they can get more!
Anybody wanna bet there won’t be ANY ‘town hall’ meetings during this recess??? Hmmm???
I will categorically state here and now, I will do everything legal within my power to see that NONE of these sleazebags get re-elected in 2010!
It is long past time for we the people to stand up for OUR rights, and I believe the ONLY way we can do that is to vote each and every one of these turkeys out next year!!!
I also believe we need a Constitutional Amendment limiting congresscritters to two terms, AND making them come under ANY legislation they pass, no exemptions, no excuses. If there is no COLA raise for military or retirees, then THEY don’t get a raise either. IF the military or retirees gets a 2.1% raise, that is what they get.
Also I would do away with “retirement” pay for serving in congress. It should be a PRIVILEGE to serve, not a way to set one’s self up for life!
Oh by the way, how come if this gets passed, the taxing, etc. starts next year, but there are no “changes” to coverage requirements till 2014??? And since the dems pushed through the $200B payments to doctors for Medicare this year (by a close vote last week), why is THAT money not calculated?
And how do they propose to add at least 6 million to the insurance rolls, and cut funding to Medicare/Medicaid? And where are all the ‘extra’ doctors going to come from to treat all the new patients (especially since it takes average of EIGHT years to become a doctor)?
