    Blanche Lincoln

    Senator Blanche Lincoln will soon be former Senator Blanche Lincoln

    Blanche Lincoln, Arkansas’ Democrat Senator, is quickly learning the price of her vote in favor of ObamaCare. The latest poll show that she’s trailing five – count ‘em, five – different Republicans.

    In fact, it looks like she could lose to pretty much anyone who doesn’t have a “D” after their name. Look for members of the Whig and Bullmoose parties to throw their hats into the wide open ring.

    Rasmussen reports the depressing Democrat details:

    Four of Arkansas Senator Blanche Lincoln’s Republican opponents now earn more than 50% of the vote as her path to reelection grows even steeper.

    The numbers are closer when Lieutenant Governor Bill Halter is the Democrat in the race, but only because there are more undecided voters.

    A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Arkansas, where opposition to the national health care plan is even higher than it is nationally, finds both Democrats stuck in the mid-30s. This suggests that the race continues to be more anti-Democrat in tone than pro-Republican.

    Congressman John Boozman, State Senate Republican leader Kim Hendren, State Senator Gilbert Baker and former State Senator Jim Holt all earn 51% of the vote against Lincoln. She in turn picks up 36% support against three of the GOP hopefuls and 35% when matched against Holt.

    A fifth Republican, businessman Curtis Coleman, leads Lincoln 48% to 36%.
    In every case, the Republicans have gained support, while Lincoln, who earned 38% to 41% in the match-ups last month, has lost ground. Now her numbers are back to the lows she experienced in February.

    Bye bye, Blanche. Don’t let the door hit you in the rotunda on the way out.

    She is a dead goose. Voting for H.C. in a red state is an ending career move. Repubs need to pick up 9 more to gain control of the Senate which will be difficult as 18 seats on each side are up for grabs in 010. In 2012, 24 D. seats and 9 R. seats will be up for grabs.

    She's almost surely going to loose her seat. I gotta hand it to her though, she did what she felt was right, what she felt was best for the people, even though it was unpopular and caused her to sacrifice her own job.

    Good leadership.

    Not caring about the Constitution and the role it lays out for the Federal government - plus defying the will of the majority of your constituents is not leadership. She was following the marxist dictates of her statist handlers.

    What is unconstitutional, specifically, about this health care bill? What argument should be made to the supreme court?

    Keep in mind that the "mandate" isn't a criminal law, it's not a criminal offense to not buy insurance, it's simply a new tax that everyone pays unless you have insurance then you get a credit.

    What exactly is unconstitutional about it?

    Bull Crap ! She caved in to Reid and O'bummer and didn't think they would notice it in Arkansas.
    She sold her vote to Reid just like Landrieu and Ben Nelson did, no leadership or nobility involved.It goes to prove that they are all whores.

    Maybe in your liberal fantasy world semantics matters. Here, you may attempt to call it a tax. It is most certainly a FINE. This FINE if not paid lands you in JAIL. The fact that the IRS is given the task of collecting doesn't make it a tax. Oh, in case you missed it, we, the American people, DO NOT WANT THIS CRAP!:mad:

    Everyone is getting taxed. If you have insurance you get a credit on that tax. You do not have insurance so you will pay the tax.

    Taxation is perfectly constitutional and it always has been.
