More Obamacare Vote Selling?

There are reports two retiring Democrats have been offered nice job appointments for a "yes" vote on Obamacare. If this is true, it should be prosecuted as bribery. The odds of Eric Holder investigating this alleged crime are "slim" and "none."

From “Most interesting rumor from the Hill yesterday: Rep. Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) who announced his retirement from Congress has been promised the job of NASA administrator in exchange for his vote, and Rep. John Tanner (D-Tenn.), another retiring Democrat, has been promised an appointment as U.S. Ambassador to NATO in exchange for his vote. It will be interesting to note any job announcements from this Tennessee duo post-House retirement. Both voted against passage of the House bill back in November.”

Gordon has announced that he is now a yes vote on the bill. Tanner is still in the undecided category.
