Representative Bart Gordon of Tenn. sold his vote on the Health Care Takeover bill for a little over 100 million dollars for the construction of a hospital for indigent patients in his district! Ain't it grande?
Representative Gordon sold his vote--and sold out his country--so that he could put his name front and center on a new hospital. Let that sink in for a minute. I'd be amazed if he felt safe going home after this vote.
So now we have the Cornhusker Kickback, Gator Aid (for the state of Florida), the Rocky Top Vote Swap, the Louisiana Purchase, and the brand new Hospital in Connecticut just to name a few of the corrupt deals required to get votes. There ARE others.
Today's congresssional Democrats are the MOST CORRUPT bunch of politicians who have ever occupied our federal government.
Never have we seen the legislative process so corrupted!
