Ben Nelson (D-Hell) Kills Unemployment Benefits Extension

With people starving and losing their homes because their unemployment benefits have run out, Sen. Ben Nelson joined Republicans, withholding his vote to assure the Democrats lacked the 60 votes needed to overcome the Republican filibuster. This is the third time the benefits extension bill has failed, and this time, it's because of a Democrat, who says the bill is not paid for.

I have known forever that Ben Nelson had no brain. Now I know he also has no heart. I suppose his body is made up entirely of a prick and an asshole.

Any questions about why I am no longer a Democrat? It's simple: there are too many Ben Nelsons in today's Democratic Party. There is no place for a liberal in such a party.

  1. I've given up on expecting anything positive from the Dems. Like you said there are way too many Nelsons in the bunch. Both the Democrats and Republicans have given up trying to pretend they actually represent a constituency and are just doing the bidding of their corporate masters. The more people are unemployed and without any resources like the measly unemployment the lower the corporate fat cats can drive wages and benefits. The bigger the desperate labor pool is the cheaper they can operate. If you are an employer its a great deal.
