>>Health Care Reform gets it’s 60th vote in Senate. Bought Nelson. Nebraskans NEVER EVER to pay additional Medicaid costs!

Nelson supports health bill after tough bargaining – Yahoo! News

Nelson sold out after being promised millions for his state in Medicaid payments.  That makes at least two Senators who were bought with promises of  millions in  extra Medicaid funds from tax payers of all the states.  But nelson of Nebraska made the best deal by holding out the longest;  Nebraskans will NEVER EVER have to pay additional Medicaid costs.  Remember the Democrats bill puts  1/3 of those newly covered with health care under Medicaid.  the states will get help with these millions of additional people for two years and then the states will have to pick up the tab from then on.  All but Nebraska and head honcho Senate Majority Leader Reid’s Nevada and a few others.

A holdout no more, Sen. Ben Nelson agreed Saturday to provide the 60th and deciding vote for sweeping health care legislation in the Senate, capping a year of struggle and a final burst of deadline bargaining on President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.Nelson, D-Neb., said he made his decision after winning fresh concessions to limit the availability of abortions in insurance sold in newly created exchanges, as well as tens of million in federal Medicaid funds for his home state.

This article gives some details of what is in the final bill that Nelson agree to.  but We the People certainly won’t be sing it before it becomes the law of the land.    I certainly hope people land on their congressmen and women hard and heavy when they come home for Christmas.  Boycott their homes if nothing else.    They are traitors one and all!  BB

Not highly surprising. Nelson apparently doesn’t look out of his Orlando offices to see the daily protesters.

Not surprising at all considering the great deal he made for Nebraska! They will Never ever have to pick up the tab for Medicaid. Of course it is only the same deal Harry Reid handed himself and a few others for their states. BB

I may have the wrong Nelson, but my sentiment is the same. There is a Sen. Nelson in Orlando, though, that has daily protestors of the ‘bill’.

I knew who you meant and I sometimes get mixed up too so no big deal here. 🙂 BB
