Let's make a deal...

One of my favorite stories that always seems aprapos whenever politicians start wheeling and dealing, concerns a man who was sitting next to an attractive young lady in a bar. After conversing fo a while, the man asked the woman if she would sleep with him for a million dollars. She eagerly replied that she would. He then asked if she would sleep with him for ten dollars. Greatly offended, the young woman snapped "NO!!! What do you think I am?", to which the man replied, "Oh, we've already decided that. Now we're just haggling on the price."

Nebraska senator Ben Nelson decided to sell his vote on the Senate health care bill for about
$45 million. For starters, anyway.

Nebraska may have got the money, but a lot of other people got screwed.
