CINCINNATI, OH: An alert reader notified us that Vice President Joe Biden was in Cincinnati on Monday March 15th lobbying for passage of the health care reform bill and raising money for Ohio 1st District U.S. Congressman Steve Driehaus. Our reader asks some tough questions:
Why would Vice President Joe Biden come to Cincinnati to help raise funds for Ohio 1st District U.S. Congressman Steve Driehaus?
It has been reported that voting for the Health Care Bill would be a problem for some in Congress in terms of reelection this fall, and maybe later. However, it won’t be a problem for Steve Driehaus. Just days before the vote was to be held for the Health Care Bill, Joe Biden comes to Cincinnati to help raise funds for a guy who couldn’t get elected “Dog Catcher.” Joe knows that. Joe also knows, “If you got nothing, you got nothing to lose.”
Is it possible an inside deal of some sort could have happened? It is a fact, that Steve Driehaus suddenly changed his vote and supported the Health Care Bill.
To quote an American Communist “If it looks like a duck, and if it quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck”.
As more details about payoffs emerge we encourage our readers to report them here at the NIP.
