Trust Me, Rocket Man

This goofy little stunt ain’t gonna help no way, no how, and it ain’t rocket science why.

A Democratic senator who faces a potentially tough re-election battle in a political swing state wants the Senate to approve a non-binding resolution urging the U.S. Supreme Court to decide quickly if the new health care law is constitutional.

Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, who voted for the law when it was approved last year, announced his proposal Wednesday as the Senate debated a Republican resolution to repeal the health care law, which gets mixed reviews in opinion polls…

…”Why don’t we expedite that?” Nelson asked on the Senate floor Wednesday. “Why don’t we express our intent to have an expedited review by the Supreme Court?”

Its passage might prevent people from arguing back and forth over this law for the next several years and everybody in this country that’s going to be affected would have an answer and they deserve an answer,” Nelson said.

If the court upholds the law, it could provide political cover for Nelson against critics of the law in his state as he seeks a third term next year.

Boy, do they have THAT wrong. If the Supremes uphold it, I’m gonna be TWICE AS PISSED that the sonofabitch VOTED for IT, when I, as HIS CONSTITUENT, blistered his phone lines fifty times begging him NOT to.

You are so gonna be grounded, my man.
That countdown commenced with his “aye”.

UPDATE: As if his original ‘yes’ vote wasn’t enough, it’s surpassing strange that his SECOND vote yesterday, in support of ObamaCare, has just now elicited some information that NEVER trickled back to his employment/business challenged constituents…

…Senate Democrats flat-out defended the provision. When Mr. Johanns got a September vote on repeal, he lured just seven Democrats—not enough for passage. In truth, many Democrats simply liked the provision, as evidenced by their votes for Florida Democrat Bill Nelson’s amendment to keep 1099 but to raise the threshold to $5,000. (That, too, failed.) The White House remained opposed to repeal.

REALLY? OUR Senator offered a work-around amendment to KEEP the 1099 LAST YEAR?

When Florida was falling apart before his squinty eyes?!?!?!?!

But he sure jumped on the Repeal the Damn Thing QUICK! bandwagon THIS time.

    Once again I’m reminded of the old saw that it’s better to be screwed by a hooker than a politician: with the hooker, you get something out of it.

    Hey, Senator Dumbass – it’s NOT the Supreme Court’s job to correct all of your mistakes! You should ALREADY know if it’s Constitutional before you vote on it!

    Of course that’s hard to do when parts of it aren’t even written yet, much less read – but I guess that’s the Change we’ve all heard so much about.

    He looks strange, like he’s had a bunch of plastic surgery. His eyes look “done.”

    You hear him talk NJ Sue, just makes you want to puke. And those beady eyes squinting while he talks, turning his head, he’s such an asshat.
