Harry Reid has unilaterally decided that the rest of America will pay the Medicaid costs for Nebraska. He bribed Ben Nelson to get his vote:
We’ll be blunt. The ‘health care reform’ legislation under consideration in the Senate is the most corrupt piece of legislation in our nation’s history. Yes, we understand that is a strong statement and there have been other abominations throughout our nation’s life. But never before did corrupt legislation threaten to radically and forever change the live’s of every American.

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.
What an absolute disgrace. The Democrat from Nevada meets the Democrat from Nebraska behind closed doors and swing a deal in which the rest of the nation is taxed to provide benefits specifically to Nebraska. I am calling both my Senators tomorrow and let them know what I think of this.
