Sen Nelsen received a sweetheart deal in exchange for his vote on the healthcare legislation---his state will NEVER pick up any of the costs for Medicaid. The federal government via the taxpayers will do it. The senator now claims the deal will be offered to ALL states, that it just hasn't been marked up yet.
Didn't the bill put a lot of additional financial responsiblity on the states in order to reduce the cost to keep it from raising the defict?
If this is put in place how much do you think it will add to the final price tag? The estimate for the low populated Nebraska is $100 million for 10 years.

Some are saying yes...many are saying NO! The general consensus seems to be this was the bribe to get THIS mans vote.....Nice to see the CHANGE happening in DC ;) If it DOES go to all states I heard another BILLION dollar figure being thrown around....but at this rate of spending I am just exhausted by this. I am just at a loss as to why ANYONE on EITHER side is condoning ANY of this behavior.
