— Dave in Texas Heh.
COLUMBIA, S.C. -Republican attorneys general in 13 states say congressional leaders must remove Nebraska's political deal from the federal health care reform bill or face legal action, according to a letter provided to The Associated Press Wednesday.
"We believe this provision is constitutionally flawed," South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster and the 12 other attorneys general wrote in the letter to be sent Wednesday night to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Who really don't give a rat's ass what 13 Republican attorneys general think or threaten to do, with a (frankly) mildly worded "saber-rattle".
That is not the point. This is the point.
House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., said the letter was a political ploy.
"This threat stinks of partisan politics," he said in a statement. "If Henry McMaster wants to write federal law he should run for Congress not governor."
Well duh congressman, that's because it is a political ploy. And we need more of them.
As has been reported, public support for the Comprehensive Piece of Shit continues to crater, not grow. People are pissed off at Democrats.
It is the obligation, and responsibility of the opposition to keep the amps turned up to eleven. So keep painting Ben "Let's Make a Deal" Nelson with the health care stinkbrush while he airs his crappy "I loves this Bill" ads in the face of his political demise. Republicans should continue to hang it around the necks of every damned Democrat that supported it. Because it is a loser and it has people madder than all hell.
Even people who aren't all that politically motivated.

This will be the first of many lawsuits, if this passes. I'm waiting to see what happens when they try and remove Stupak from the bill.
2010 will be a bloodbath
I hope Rush pulls through, and modifies his habits so he is around to see the Victory in 2012.

Okay, these 13 lawyers do not have to go up against the wall when the revolution comes. But we'll still have to keep an eye on 'em.
Is the number 13 significant?

Washington DC is not supposed to be the final source of political power in America, and the states are not supposed to be provinces.

Hey, now wait one minute, what exactly is wrong with all of the political power being centered in one location, under one fallen spirit, err, man?

I suppose that equal protection under the law is also a political ploy?

The beauty of the partisan vote is that every democrat - every one of them - cast the deciding vote. They have all decided to follow kamikaze politics. Ben Nelson and Max Baucus are done, stick a fork in 'em.
Isn't it ironic that democrats scream 'political ploy' about opposition of a bill that they hurried to pass, but that same bill doesn't go into effect for years, and why? It was a political ploy because their political capital is decaying faster than U238.
Won't it be just hunkydory when NE's governor has to fight to keep his illgotten gains, and sinks his own political fortunes as well. This bill is toxic and it will destroy the democrat majorities for decades, and for what? So they can say they passed it this time... Fools.

At least he hasn't imubed a significant amount of that power to a physical item like a ring, a logo, or a teleprompter. Or have you been handing out rings again?

The Nebraska governor is an R and has been openly criticizing Nelson for the deal.

Just because I happen to be very close to 9 prominent political leaders doesn't mean I gave anything to them. No. I just like them as people. Honest. Really, would I lie to you?

A couple of nights ago on Bret Baier's Fox News slot, Mara Liasson confidently predicted that Iowa's citizens would be celebrating Nelson's bringing home the bacon.
Those Iowa bacon lovers!!!

He's running hard for Gov, but he has a few problems. He may not get the nomination.

Pedantically speaking, you're referring to Comprehensive Piece of Shit, Too. Technically, Comprehensive Piece of Shit still refers to the relatively bipartisan illegal alien amnesty and reward program from a couple of years ago. Technically.
But the Democrats still own both. Just think, this summer they'll be pushing for an Even More Comprehensive Piece of Shit.

21: As usual, the Repubs continue to earn the title of the "stupid" party. I cannot fathom why we aren't seeing:
RNC sponsored internet postings or TV spots of specifics of the evil legislative details within the health care bill (yes there are too many to list but pick the worst most egregous ones).
RNC sponsored information on the financial double dealing and payoffs in TRAP, stimulus, defense bills
RNC requests for information on Major Hassan (remember him--move alng nothing to see here), Gen Casey's concern bout diversity over soldiers lives, the sequence of events that ignored the Nigerian bomber, the incompetence of Sec Napolitano, etc.
But as usual, the repubs never fail to disappoint.
