Nelson Booed

More

The kindly Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) is facing some opposition back home over his decision to vote in favor of the Senate health care bill--so much so that he got booed in a pizza restaurant in Omaha while leaving with his wife and friends, Politico's Manu Raju reports:

Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson and his wife were leaving dinner at a new pizza joint near their home in Omaha one night last week when a patron began complaining about Nelson's decisive vote in favor of the Senate's health care bill.

Other customers started booing. A woman yelled, "Get him the hell out of here!" And the Nelsons and their dining companions beat a hasty retreat.
