Ben Nelson rejects abortion amendment, and sign Jim DeMint's petition!

A lot of great stuff over at Hot Air today, including the breaking news that Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson has rejected the abortion compromise and is still not ready to vote for the health care deform bill! Call or fax his offices and say thank you!! Make sure to tell him that we won't forget his courage under this particularly ferocious fire.

Also, yesterday Allahpundit (at Hot Air - okay, I love those guys) had a really great idea: call the super lefty senators like Bernie Sanders and beg them to not vote for the bill unless there is a public option and funding for abortion...

A small suggestion for those who’ve been calling Blue Dogs like Nelson to urge them to oppose: Start calling liberals like Sanders and telling them that America deserves a strong, vibrant, robust public option. Stand strong, socialists!

Make the radicals dig their heels in while simultaneously encouraging the conservatives and moderates to do the same and wah-lah, gridlock. And yes I am suggesting gridlock to stop this bill, and there is nothing nasty or underhanded about it. Our founding fathers deliberately set up the system so that we would be able to stop radical agendas that are out of line with the nature of this country and its people. Gridlock by design. It is a beautiful, beautiful thing, and a strategy that the Democrats were proud to use in 2005 and 2006.


Jim DeMint started a petition to Read Every Page of the health care bill and is asking for Americans to sign it, thereby showing that we support the Republican effort to read every page of every amendment and of the entire bill. This way the American people and the senators themselves may know what is in this bill. Pass this on and post it everywhere!


Updated with Bernie Sanders' contact information. Let's call it Operation Gridlock, though not to their faces, of course.
