Obama Judgeship Bribery Joins Louisiana Purchase and Cornhusker Kickback
Are you a member of the U.S. House of Reps or a Senator that needs some “convincing” that selling out your constituents and implementing a socialist take over of healthcare is a good idea? Well, President Wheeler-Dealer has a deal for you.
You’ve heard of the Cornhusker Kickback where a Senator from a western state can get all sorts of freebies from the government for a “yes” vote on Obamacare?
How about that ever popular Louisiana Purchase where a nice southern lady was paid off for that “yes” vote?
Well now comes Obama’s newest backroom deal in an effort to payoff a member of Congress for a “yes” vote.
Obama has now bribed a member of Congress with a judgeship to the brother to a member of the House of Reps in hopes that he will vote “yes” on Obamacare during the now upcoming reconciliation phase of the bill.
Scott Matheson, brother of Congressman Jim Matheson (D, Utah), was suddenly nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit today. Obidiently, Congressman Matheson went from a “no” vote on Obamacare to “undecided.”
As Matheson’s office told the Weekly Standard:
“The Congressman is looking for development of bipartisan consensus,” Matheson’s press secretary Alyson Heyrend wrote to THE WEEKLY STANDARD on February 22. “It’s too early to know if that will occur.” Asked if one could infer that if no Republican votes in favor of the bill (i.e. if a bipartisan consensus is not reached) then Rep. Matheson would vote no, Heyrend replied: “I would not infer anything. I’d wait to see what develops, starting with the health care summit on Thursday.”
So, what do we call this payoff? I don’t know, maybe the Great Salt Lick Judgeship? What ever we call it, it stinks.
