Iowa Defense Alliance: Senator Harkin dismisses the "small stuff"

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

This morning I awoke to find that Iowa Senator Tom Harkin has once again demonstrated the elitism that he has cultivated during his career in the US Senate. In an interview on CBS this morning Senator Harkin defended the intensely unpopular health reform legislation moving through the US Congress. Even more disgusting was his defense of the use of taxpayer money to bribe skeptical Senators into supporting bad legislation. If there was ever a demonstration of the problems plaguing our government this was it. If you haven't had the opportunity to watch the interview please take the time to do so now. It was just days ago that Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson capitulated in what has become widely known as the Cornhusker Kickback. This was a deal that provided the state of Nebraska with millions in taxpayer funded earmarks in exchange for his support of the Senate version of the health reform bill.
