Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) reached out Thursday evening to South Carolina GOP Attorney General Henry McMaster, the leader of a group of 13 Republican state attorneys general who are threatening to file suit against the Senate health care bill, and urged him to forgo any legal action, POLITICO has learned.
According to a copy of a memo sent by McMasters chief of staff to other GOP state attorneys general detailing the call, Nelson asked McMaster to call off the dogs, a reference to recent threats by the state AGs to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a Medicaid provision in the bill that benefits Nebraska at the expense of other states.

Bring on the dogs!
Stop your foolish meddling, Nelson. Stay out of it. You blew it. You coulda been a contender.
HMMM. Lets say he drops that “deal” then what? He voted yes for nothin, Im not sure that isnt worse.
Call off the dogs? We’re just getting started, bozo. I hope the dogs are doberman’s as well, so they tear up the traitors to the american people real well. The real test will come with the upcoming elections, then we’ll see if there’s more “bite” vs. the bark to the citizen’s ire.
Bring those dogs on and file the lawsuits.
call off the dogs
So, he was asking politely, eh...FUBN
Sorry Bennie! You are toast! “Who Let The Dogs Out! Woof! Woof! Woof!”
And why would he do that? I don’t think the letter actually went far enough.
Unleash the dogs of war.
You have to be a disgustingy detached and arrogant poltician to tell an Attorney General to not do their job to check the constitutionality of something.
Listen Democrats...you have forever sunk to lows you will never escapefrom. You think you’re above the law,the constitution and the people. I will always resent the hell out of you liberals who have been busy destroying the fabric of this great nation. I will also be so ery happy when I retire from the military so I can run, effectively, against you where ever I can and set you back 100 years.
Sen. Ben Nelson wants them to call of the dogs, he shouldn’t have put on his Milk Bone suit...
He can say what he wants. I for one am happy he is unhappy at the AG’s oversight and threat of lawsuit. The states have every right to investigate this, and other states have the right to file lawsuits over the constitutionality of this bill.
Bring on the legal challenges. Big surprise, Nelson.
Give it a rest Nelson, you phony. You sold out for a big time payoff and you (and WE) know it. Who do you think you’re kidding? What the senate has done is thoroughly unconstitutional. Of course, never having READ the document, you wouldn’t KNOW that!
They should prosecute with extreme prejudice. Nelson could end this by changing his vote. While we’re at it I’d love to see every crooked deal used to pass this POS exposed to the light of day.
