Let us all move and retire in Nebraska!

How do you pass a bill?

First, a Senator sits out and demands a deal.

Second, the Senate Majority Leader gives him an offer that he can't refuse.

And the other 49 states pay the bill.

Beyond the obvious corruption and bad smell, is
it constitutional for one state to get sch a favored arrangement from a federal program?

I don't think so.

Isn't a federal program a federal program?

Frankly, someone should challenge the Senate Dems on this obvious case of corruption.

The WSJ has a great editorial: Change Nobody Believes In----
"So in addition to abortion restrictions, Mr. Nelson won the concession that Congress will pay for 100% of Nebraska Medicaid expansions into perpetuity.

His capitulation ought to cost him his political career, but more to the point, what about the other states that don't have a Senator who's the 60th vote for ObamaCare?"

Sen Nelson, and Majority Leader Reid, have a lot of explaining to do, specially to the citizens of the other 49 states that will pay for this!

Here is more on Sen Nelson's vote.

This is from Big Government:

"Exhibit A is the outright bribe extracted by Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Corn Huckster State) from Sen. Harry Reid.

As a result of Nelson’s performance in his role of Hamlet in the health care deliberations, we will have two health care systems in this country; one for Nebraska and one for the other 49 states.

In its quixotic attempt to ensure everyone has health insurance, the Reid legislation greatly expands Medicaid eligibility.

Because Medicaid is a program whose costs are split between the federal and state governments, this expansion in eligibility raise costs dramatically for states.

States will be forced to either raise taxes or cut other services to accommodate the forced increase in Medicaid spending.

Unless that state is Nebraska."

P.S. There are more deals:
Price Is Right?
