Esquire names Ben Nelson one of 10 worst in Congress
Esquire recently named Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson one of the 10 Worst members of Congress list, calling him “the most obstreperous Democrat in the Senate.”
He is listed right above Rep. Charlie Rangel. Ouch.
Esquire notes that after Nelson “maneuvered for a sweet deal for his home state to have its mandated expansion of Medicaid paid for by the federal government permanently in order to get his vote for health-care reform” (aka the Cornhusker Kickback) he was “stunned to find out that every last person in his home state was horribly embarrassed by his deal.”
Nobody says it better than Esquire, so I won’t even try. Read it here.
