Now, this would be the ultimate in irony. Remember Senator Ben Nelson who swore up and down that he would stand firm against abortion funding in the healthcare bill only to suffer the world’s most watched moral collapse when he received the infamous “Cornhusker Kickback.”
But in the end it might just be Nelson’s pricetagged morality that ends up derailing Obamacare. Brian O’Connor of the Red Dog Report has a theory that’s worth checking out.
It appears as if Senator Ben Nelson’s (D-Neb) willingness to compromise his morals, greedily accepting a $100 million White House bribe (the Cornhusker Kickback), might actually be the deciding factor that leads to Healthcare Reform failing in the House.
