think I'll start this thread for us to list purchased votes. Heaven forbid a bill stand on its own merits or anything.

I think we already covered Louisiana before on here.

Senator Nelson from Nebraska got a sweet special deal to secure his vote:

Ben Nelson help cut a deal that covers the state's estimated $45 million annual cost of expanding Medicare coverage all other states will have to share in the cost insurance companies in Nebraska will get tax and fee breaks. </div></div>

I'm sure there'll be plenty more, so let's use this thread and see what we come up with.

I believe I heard tonight that Wisconsin is getting a new hospital, and some moeny to help cover the increase in Medicare payouts.

When someone asked Harry about it, he made some comment to the effect that you could go through the bill and pick it apart and find a lot of money going to different states.

They aren't even trying to hide their vote buying!!!!

It was wrong then and it's wrong now.

Some of us can see that ... of course, others can't.
