Skip to comments.Sen. Reid plays down Nelson Medicaid buy off

The Washington Times reported last night Senator Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) had told reporters no deal was agreed to after he emerged from a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and other Democratic leaders. He went on to say health care talks were ongoing. What he failed to mention, through all of his rhetoric about his concern for pro-life language in the bill, was the huge Medicaid pay off to Nebraska being slipped into the health care bill. Essentially, the federal government will pay for Nebraska's new Medicaid recipients. The provision is worth about $45 million for the first ten years. In fact, Nebraska will be entitled to 100 percent federal help from Medicaid forever.

These Senators think that their entire State is as corrupt as they are.
I think Nevada and Louisiana got the same kind of deal.
Wasn’t it just a few days ago when Ben Nelson said his vote was not for sale?
“Money talks, B*** S*** walks.”
Except on Capitol Hill: “Money talks, B*** S*** sits in the respective resplendent chairs in the two chambers in the wings under the Dome.”
In my book this makes Nelsen worse than the scumiest leftist on the left side of the aisle.
I just watched it on CSPAN.
The “Gee...it happens ALL THE TIME to get something passed” answer by Harry was another one in series of dem Marxist replies that requires me to CONSTANTLY keep up with prices on possible necessary TV replacements.
Forever. Let’s ask the Chinese what they think of “forever”.
In 2013 we will undo that. Nebraska can pony up with the rest of the states.
As there the story goes, there was never any doubt that he was a whore, the only question was the price.
Nelson used the ‘Pro-Life’ stance as a smokescreen so he could do the dirty deal with real $$ for the sweet MedicAid deal and payback to Insurance companies within Nebraska.
A real charlatan folks....
How can it be legal for the Federal Government to pay for the State Medicaid costs of one state (or two or three) and not pay for the same liabilities in all of the other states? In a sane world, this would not be allowed.
The Marxist replies that requires me to COMSTANTLY keep up with the prices of possible necessary TV replacements....When you find them please POST them!
I guess Reid is the only one talking. Nelson’s mouth is understandably full...
So there is a price for life. I wonder what his vote would be if a pro-life group offered his state 45 million?
What he meant was his vote was not on sale, in other words, they had to pay full price.
Apparently anything and everything about Ben Nelson is for sale.
Liar, liar Pants on Fire.
Nelson is a bald faced liar——his vote WAS for sale, indeed.
Dirty deed for sure!
