Those US senators who took a principled stand on national health care, who declared that they would represent the people who elected them, have sold their souls.
What price, Ben Nelson? up to $100 million for permanent and full federal aid for Nebraska’s expanded Medicaid population
What price, Mary Landrieu? $100 million – $300 million in additional federal aid for Louisiana’s Medicaid population
What price, Bernie Sanders? a share of $1.2 billion for Vermont and Massachusetts Medicaid; $10 – $14 billion for community health centers in Vermont
And the list goes on, ad nauseam. If future federal dollars will be worth more than toilet paper, then maybe they’ve done a service for their welfare states. Personally, I think the $12+ trillion deficit is coming close to the tipping point where China will no longer prop up our fiat money.
I’m not surprised by the lack of morals or integrity in Washington, but I am thoroughly repulsed. And I’m slack jawed that a spokesman for Harry Reid openly defends this bribery and blackmail, declaring that, “This is just part of the normal legislative process.”
Perhaps it’s “normal” in Washington, but it’s not normal for a Christian. Even Judas felt remorse.
Then when Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” But they said, “What is that to us? See to that yourself!” And he threw the pieces of silver into the temple sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. (Matthew 27:3-5)
