hey corporate shilling media infotainment outlets..ask this question

why is nelson ok with using reconciliation for tax cuts for millionaires but not for health care for americans?

following the election of sen. scott brown (r-ma) in the massachusetts special election, democrats have been discussing ways to pass a comprehensive health care bill that will not be killed by a gop-led filibuster. one idea that has been floated is for the house to pass the senate’s health care bill and also immediately amend the bill to make it more progressive and acceptable to members in the house via a reconciliation bill, which requires only a simple majority vote in the Senate to pass.

sen. ben nelson (d-ne) rejected this path, telling the politico that he does not support the reconciliation process and that the health care bill should be broken up and voted on “a piece at a time, as opposed to a comprehensive approach.”

...nelson voted to use reconciliation to pass bush’s follow-up tax cuts for the wealthy in 2003. the senator was one of only two democrats who voted for the the jobs and growth tax relief reconciliation act of 2003, which contained an additional $330 billion in tax cuts. the tax cuts would not have passed without nelson’s vote. [5/23/2003] - think progress
and could you infotainment geniuses ask earl benjamin about his past employment history and how that could be, well, a little explaination of his j**ka** attitude about failing to want to fix the ailing american pay or die system?

nelson's early career as assistant general counsel for central national insurance group of omaha was followed by service as nebraska's state insurance director before he returned to central national insurance as an executive vice president; he eventually became the company's president. - wikipedia

WHy is the Senate so filled with mendacious shits of Democrats? Why are they afraid of a filibuster? The longest filibuster in history was, what, 24 hours or something? And then the legislation passed. Let the Republicans filibuster for weeks if they can manage it and then pass a GOOD health care bill, not the piece of crap in the Senate.
