'Twas the nightmare before Christmas
Special to the Herald-Guide - Dec 24, 2009
From Tony Perkins’
It’s going to be tough sledding for Senate Democrats over Christmas--and not because of the snow. America’s rage over the leadership’s bill is exploding on all sides. With Tuesday’s early morning vote for cloture (the second of three), the Democrats are one step closer to their flights home, where rallies are already taking place at local offices. The biggest bulls-eye seems to be squarely on Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), who sold out his pro-life soul faster than you can say “Medicare exemption.”
In fact... they’re outraged that a backroom deal for our state might have been what puts this deal across the finish line.” Even Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman, whose budget stands to profit from the deal, said he wants no part of these special favors and made it quite clear that “the responsibility for this special deal lies solely on the shoulders of Senator Ben Nelson.”
Yesterday, the pro-abortion caucus in Congress met with insurance providers and lawyers to find ways to understand it and defeat it.
House and Senate conferees would do well to heed that warning when they come together to iron out their differences with the final bill, else this bill could collapse because of it.
Ring in the New Year by ringing up your leaders! Join us in spending the next couple weeks calling, emailing, and visiting your House and Senate leaders. If you’ve run out of things to say, you could always sing. FRC’s Chris Curry put together some new lyrics to “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” that are sure to get you noticed! Also, don’t miss the first (and potentially last) appearance of the FRC Singers as they stumble through a satirical version of “Let It Snow!”
