“Former Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson, who voted for Obamacare after receiving the ‘Cornhusker kickback” for his state, met with President Barack Obama [November 20] to talk about how to fix the law.
“Nelson retired from the Senate in January and almost immediately boosted his salary over five times by becoming the CEO of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).”
Remember: “dark money” is bad and destroys democracy only when it is right-wing money.
The New York Times finally admits Joe Stalin was right when he said you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs:
The Walking And Chewing Gum At The Same Time Act, a/k/a The Improper Payments Agency Cooperation Enhancement Act is a “bill sponsored by U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-NARAL) [that] would introduce measures to stop federal benefits from being paid to the deceased.”
The fact that an act of Congress is needed—literally—in order to stop throwing taxpayer $$$$ at dead people says all that needs to be said about our leviathan federal government.
