Wish Bill Nelson Happy Birthday! And send $$

"Wish Bill A Happy Birthday," urges his wife, Grace Cavert Nelson, in an e-mail.

"It seems impossible that a year has gone by since I last wrote to you asking you to send Bill a greeting for his birthday," the e-mail says. "But the time is upon us again. Tomorrow is Bill’s birthday and the plan is to give him as many signed cards as possible. Your good wishes and support last year meant a lot to Bill and our family. So today, please join me in wishing Bill a happy birthday by signing his card."

"P.S.," the e-mail continues, after a tribute to Nelson's "vision and integrity": "Tomorrow is not only Bill's birthday, but also the day before the end-of-quarter fundraising deadline. Please consider making a contribution to our campaign before this important deadline."

He turns 67 on Tuesday. Nelson isn't up for re-election until 2012, but he's already hit the $1 million fundraising mark as Republicans have suggested he's in their sights, amid some Democratic grumbling that Nelson needed to step up his efforts on health care reform.

He'll get my best wishes and contribution when I see real healthcare reform, not the joke that's in the finance committee. Bill Nelso has thrown those of us between 50 and 64 under the wagon. He thinks it's a great idea to charge us 5 times what younger people pay for insurance and then wants to make it mandatory that we buy it.

Oh yeah, he also agrees with taxing us for premiums over $8,000 a year. I don't know what Florida Nelson lives in but it's not the one I live in. My high deductible policy costs $12,000 a year and the only one I can get one under $8,000 would leave me paying 50% of all medical bills AFTER a high deductible. Hey, Bill - tell me where your Florida is.
