WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More than a dozen U.S. state attorneys general visited Washington on Wednesday threatening to sue the U.S. government if the so-called "Cornhusker Kickback," a special subsidy offered to Nebraska, is included in pen1ding healthcare reform legislation.
The subsidy, which was included in the Senate version of the bill, is "capricious and arbitrary treatment of Nebraska," said South Carolina's Republican Attorney General Henry McMaster, who has organized a group of 15 attorneys to pursue a lawsuit.
The group includes two Democrats, one from Oklahoma and one from American Samoa.
I think they should sue. What is your opinion?

The Nebraska deal is a pure BS buy off. When I saw this title, I was excited. Then I saw it was only for the Nebraska deal. It should be because this WHOLE damn bill is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. It completely violates the 10th amendment and completely takes over states' rights. It is BS and needs to be stopped. With any luck, the Massachusetts election will give the ability to filibuster it and stop it.
