You turn coat, Benedict Arnold ,traitor! Your a goddamn DINO get the f out of my party.

You are a terrible representative for your state. Voting against the American Workers (UI Extension) was terrible. You do realize these people are putting money BACK into the system. So now you’ve hurt the small Mom and Pop, Bus drivers, job seekers to get to and from these painful interviews.

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN TO HELP THESE PEOPLE NOW!!!! I’ve been looking for over 8 months now I have two weeks left. I have no idea what I’m going to do. WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR US NOW… I’m very eager to know. You’re going to cause more disruption and instability. Can I come and live with you until this job “thing” is taken care of?

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN? I really want to see it, cause it needs to take place very quickly (in days, not weeks). email me

some Democrat you are… worthless.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Children are going homeless as a direct result of your actions. Look your family in the face and tell them how you just wrote off millions of fellow American citizens… good people from across this country who would most assuredly be earning a living if it werent for these extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in.

You and the others who voted ‘no’ on the extension of unemployment can be thanked by everyone for the ‘New Homeless’. I’m going to do everything in my power to organize those impacted by this poor decision, and create a scene so big the media wont be able to ignore it. It’s the only way those who arent rich can have themselves heard by our so-called representatives.

Mr.Ben Nelson….I’m not from Nebraska….but I’ll bet my non-existent unemployment benefits that you won’t be re elected!

This Democratic senator only votes 61% of the time with his party. This guy needs to be voted out. He needs to replace that “D” with an “R” for Repugs! He is a disgrace to his party.

kevinmcc 07/07/2009 8:38am

This guy is a total jerkoff for pulling parliamentary tricks to block Sen. DeMint amendment to audit the Federal Reserve, but yet the Dems. had earmarks and other legislation in violation in the bill. If he votes no on S.604, then his representatives need to make sure he does not get re-elected.

You are a disgrace to your country and should be embarrassed to have the UNITED STATES in front of your title.4th of July is upon us-it reminds us of history and how the people can come together to make a difference.I hope you and your family meet the same outcome as the 15,000,000+ unemployed.You turned your back on the Citizens by playing games and stupid antics.Assistance needs to be offered to ease the minds of the families and allow continued dignity no matter the cost. You spend OUR money like water and the American people MUST and SHOULD be priority one!
“As good government is an empire of laws, how shall your laws be made? In a large society,inhabiting an extensive country,it is impossible that the whole should assemble to make laws. The first necessary step, then,is to depute power from the many to a few of the most wise and good.”
John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
Obviously we dont have the few wise and good in the senate-but we have the power to change that.

All these comments look like a hate blog. Health care…ever hear them talking about 18,000 Americans dying every year or just the having to have insurance (that they should carry anyway) which keeps folks off EMTALA. Cornhusker kickback, you protected Nebraska. The DEMS screwed it up by not doing it for everybody. This hate blog doesnt seem to carry much substance but alot of low level insult.

Superpower 12/19/2009 5:11am

Looks like Sen. Ben Nelson has cut a backroom deal, (special favors) to put America’s economy in the garbage. Nelson has sold his soul to the devil and we all are going to pay for it. Now America gets to pay the medical expenses for the guy down the street who smokes three packs a day and receives a welfare check. When will America wake up? This administration and the Democrats are destroying the system that has kept America economically stable for 250+ years. Next thing you know, if you don’t vote Democrat you will be denied medical attention. Welcome to obama’s America! You should be ashamed of yourself, “Senator” Nelson.

swordsman7 12/21/2009 1:09pm

Well it looks like Ben got bought off, just like JUDAS. i hope this guy has seen his last term as a senator, but he will kiss some butt and stay in office by using our money to buy votes. all i can say is get the rope and lets go to D.C. it’s way past time to clean out our buildings of crooks like this guy!

fortermlimits 12/24/2009 5:00pm

This guy has got to go, he’s done all the damage we can stand.

elleedr 06/18/2010 10:35am

If you are apart of the American unemployed or share the same views as the unemployed and want to have a peaceful march on Washington to show that we do need our unemployment or in support of unemployment, email me at This has to be done, a peaceful stand needs to take place soon to make a difference. Before a lot of Americans lose the little bit that they do have. We didn’t ask for the economy to be this way and it is not our fault that we can not find jobs all at the same time. We worked all of our lives and now that we need help, the people in congress is saying no! We are the ones that help pay for wars, national disasters, and the congressmen paychecks. Now they are telling us that they cannot pass a bill so we can feed and house our families. What is more important the “Oil Spill” or the unemployed and their children. I don’t think so, it’s time for a peaceful march, email me at, to make a peaceful stand now.

whywasilaidoff 06/26/2010 3:26pm

I feel betrayed. I worked hard all these years and have been a good citizen and paid my taxes. My employer paid unemployment insurance in case I was laid off. I have not collected benifits for years. When the automotive business was bailed out I was put on part-time and then in December I was laid off even though I had more seniority than most of my office workers. This was not my fault! I am not looking for a hand out like my neighbors on welfare. I am looking for help until this world turns itself around. Please support us so we can get on our feet and once again start contributing back to the good ole USA.

anna1974 06/28/2010 7:38pm

Shame, shame, shame!!!

wjp0023 06/30/2010 4:36pm

You are an a-hole. I can’t believe you are going to let the unemployed people of America suffer. jerk off!

rufusjuice 06/30/2010 10:27am

Mr. Nelson,please show some mercy to your fellow Americans and DO NOT LEAVE for a holiday without giving hope to the millions of unemployed and their families who have no hope today. I fear that if the benefits extension does not pass, the news over this 4th of July holiday will be the increase in suicides of people who were betrayed by their country for the sake of politics. People care more about feeding their children today than the debt. How can you betray your party and constituents who voted for you? More than that, how can you sleep at night knowing that children are going hungry because you are more concerned about the next election than their welfare? God help you, Mr. Nelson.

I pay my bills on my own & have been unemployed for 13 1/2 months, have a Masters Degree & want to work. I apply for 40 jobs a week in various ways from professional jobs, to waitress jobs, to grocery store work & everything in between. I still have a balance with the unemployment extended benefits that expired on the June 5th. That frozen balance will make the difference of me becoming homeless or not in the next few weeks. If you’ve never had to worry about money before,count your blessings. I am like hundreds of thousands of people all scared out of their mind that they’re going to become homeless & would give anything in the world to finally get a job if I could only figure out who will hire me right now. This is an emergency situation. I’d rather be working than writing this email requesting more support. I respectfully request that you pass HR 5618 to Restore the Emergency Unemployment Compensation Act of 2010. Thank you.
With Gratitude,
St. Petersburg, Florida

I’m disappointed that you voted with republicans on the Blunt Amendment. So, I guess you and Rick Santorum are in agreement. I can’t believe you are in favor of the GOP attack on women’s health and attaching it to a transportation bill! You are on the wrong side of history.

bribery is wrong. bribery with other people’s money is even worse.

ben nelson accepted a bribe with taxpayer money. anyone who votes for him is insane.

Nothing personal Leo but who do you think pays for his reelection?

ditchmitchthebitch 02/23/2010 10:00pm

Getting paid senator?

purplelilac3084 07/14/2010 3:48am

well, if he votes 61% with his party, that is a good thing. that means he doesn’t vote for the party, but the issue at hand.
democrats could of passed the unemployment extension bill by taking it from the stimulus, but NO, they just keep bankrupting our country!
Stimulus money is being wasted every day! If fact, more has been wasted on garbage that doesn’t even help the economy. And the jobs they promised, where are they? hmmm, they are in bigger government!
so, even though people think the republicans are bad for blocking the bill, they are PROTECTING our country. We keep borrowing money from china, etc.

Sonmore 06/25/2010 9:25am

You are one callous SOB and hope you will someday end up unemployed and experience the same current situation where people’s lives are hanging by a thread and you think of nothing but political brinksmanship. Better still, I hope you just plain rot period.

rugby6 12/19/2009 4:21pm

Senator Ben Nelson = Male Whore. Dingy Harry Reid bought him off. Now the rest of us taxpayers get to may Nebraska’s medicare bills forever………how nice. How much longer are we going to let these jokes that are in Washington run this country into the ground?

Mocha6 12/18/2010 6:25pm

Thanks for nothing…..why vote no on the dream act. Hope you are a native American because if not, your just cold hearted.

purplelilac3084 06/29/2010 5:06am

S.3520 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral ramifications for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again— S.3520 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

purplelilac3085: What is this? You are using my text that I’m sending to every senator, and claiming it as your own. Maybe you wish you wrote it, but you didn’t. This is the second time I’ve found you doing this. It’s wrong. please cease and desist.
