Nebraska Bribe-Taker Ben Nelson Will Air Ad Defending His Corrupt Vote Buyoff
As a fresh poll measured the political cost of Sen. Ben Nelson’s health reform vote, he prepared Tuesday to take his case directly to Nebraskans during Wednesday night’s Holiday Bowl game.
Nelson will air a new TV ad in which he attempts to debunk opposition claims that the Senate legislation represents a government takeover, and he makes the case for health care reform.
“With all the distortions about health care reform, I want you to hear directly from me,” the Democratic senator says in the ad.
Nelson, dressed in an open-necked shirt and sweater, speaks directly into the camera during the 30-second ad.
The message will be launched during the Nebraska-Arizona football game and continue to air statewide for an undisclosed number of days…
In his TV message to Nebraskans, Nelson says: “I listened to you and took a common-sense approach to improve the bill.”
Only 17% of Nebraskans approve of the bribes Senator Ben Nelson took from Harry Reid for his vote to nationalize US health care.
