Lets Get Ready To Rumble Reid Ready To Bribe For Health Care Reform

Harry Reid is doing what he does best, cutting deals in dark alleys, far from the view of the public, to thwart the will of the people for political gain.

Reid Leads Democrats In Carving Out Favors for States on Health
Nevada would get help with its Medicaid bills. The elderly in Florida and New York would receive additional Medicare benefits. And workers in so-called high-risk professions such as firefighting and construction would get a break on a new insurance tax.

Those are provisions that Senate Democrats, including Majority Leader Harry Reid, put in an $829 billion health-care bill to shield constituents from measures intended to pay for the biggest overhaul of the medical system in four decades.

The Mr. Rogers of politics is in trouble at home, but can he be stopped before he destroys again?

UPDATE: It's penny ante compared to Reid, but Obama is doing some bribing of his own and Collecting My Thoughts has some thoughts on that.
