It’s Only Good If Republicans Say So

Clearly what people voted for in November:

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) continues to be a scold to the liberals in his party. Before a crowd of over 200 gathered at a senior center in Nebraska, Nelson said health care reform ought to pass with 65 votes--a feat which would require at least five Republicans to break with their party.

"I think anything less than that would challenge its legitimacy," he said.

Nelson didn't go so far as to say that he'd oppose a bill that had less than 64 other votes. But he did say he disagreed with the party's legislative approach to the issue.

I’m not sure why he stopped at 65. Why not 70? Why not 100? When you’re pulling numbers out of your ass, the possibilities are endless.


  1. yeah i dont want to see any bill that wouldnt get a unanimous vote in both the house and senate and get signed off on by every person in the united states of america, anything less might not be... legitimate...

  2. I think it should get at least 102 votes in the senate.
    Granted, this would require that we first have Puerto Rico vote in favor of becoming a full state, but that's only a slight hiccup in this glorious plan for legitimate health care reform
