This is just a great little speech and a great recap of what Nelson did when he said he would support this plan. You will be as outraged as he is and I am.
This bill does not limit but instead expands abortion, as I detailed here. This bill includes the Class Act ponzi scheme provision. This bill increases Medicaid eligibility and forces states to come up with more cash (read that taxes). It still mandates insurance coverage or face a fine. It still places taxes on high end insurance policies, insurance companies, medical devices. And it still does not cover all the uninsured.
Senator Burr nails it in a very short speech. Nelson isn’t voting out of principle, he was bought.
If you want to see Mitch McConnell’s reaction, a little less passion but you can still hear the outrage … once again Jim Hoft is on it.
