Liberal Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson wants the senate Obamacare bribes extended to all of the states.
The AP reported:
Sen. Ben Nelson said Thursday he has asked Democratic leadership to extend to all states the extra Medicaid funding promised to Nebraska in the health care reform bill.
The Democrat wouldn’t say who he has spoken to regarding the so-called “Cornhusker Kickback” but that he would see to it that Nebraska doesn’t get a special deal.
“At the end of the day, whatever Nebraska gets will be available to all states,” Nelson said during a conference call with reporters.
Nelson provided the crucial 60th vote that brought the reform bill to the full Senate after winning concessions to limit the availability of abortions in insurance sold in newly created exchanges. Among other things, he was promised federal funding to cover Nebraska’s entire cost of a Medicaid expansion included in the bill. Other states will have to begin picking up a portion of the added expanse beginning in 2017.
Nelson has said he didn’t ask for special treatment for his state.
Only 17% of Nebraskans agreed with the bribes Nelson took from Senator Harry Reid for his Obamacare vote.
