Former Democrat US Senator Bob Kerrey is running for the Senate again in Nebraska to fill the seat former Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) bowed out of, after he betrayed his constituency with the “cornhusker kickback” provision in ObamaCare. That really ticked-off people in every state, and awakened us to the lengths Obama was willing to go to get his unconstitutional legislation through Congress. Kerrey says he doesn’t like the ObamaCare mandate and he believes the wealthy are already paying their fair share. Sounds great, doesn’t it? But do you really believe he will carry that position forward should Obama win another four years? He has reportedly lived in New York for as much as the last twelve years, and was not a Nebraska resident when filed for the ballot. Nebraska State Senator Deb Fischer is the Republican candidate.
If Kerrey was half a man, if he really “hates” the mandate, if he really believes in the Constitution, he would say the “mandate” is unconstitutional. Words do matter. He even admits his own insurance firm may drop employee insurance and pay the federal fine, because it is cheaper to do so.
Welcome to single payer healthcare America. We seldom hear “single payer” these days, but that’s the goal – government insurance, a medicare for all with reduced benefits unless we fill the Senate with candidates who respect the Constitution.
I will have a more in-depth profile of Deb Fischer soon, but Republicans MUST have four (4) additional seats in the Senate to make sure we can turn this country around. Believe me, if Kerrey wins, he won’t dislike that mandate nearly as much as he does today, and he won’t give a fig about his insurance company dropping coverage for employees.
Kerrey has a lot of money behind him. All politics are NOT local these days. Every vote Kerrey casts in the US Senate affects me and my family here in Oklahoma, and you and yours wherever you are. If you can donate to Deb Fischer, please do so here.
