Trouble in paradise? Is this just the begnning of state and city blowback on the Nelson payoff. Hmmmm? Is it? The countries two best know Republican liberals are already pushing back against the Senate/ House/ Obama Health bill that they know will cost them plenty. Period.
Well at least what they know about ObamaCare, which, thanks to a less than transparent, hopey changey process, isn’t much. What they do know is that a key component of these bills is the expansion of Medicaid eligability in order to decrease the number of uninsured. What they know is it’s a provision that will cost the states plenty (Schwarzenegger estimates $3 billion), and yes Connecticut too. What they know is they can’t afford more unfunded mandates. Consider this double barrel, over/under, 12 gauge blowback on Nelson’s little back room deal I detailed here.
Correct me if I am wrong, but are you guys starting to get the impression this Nelson/Nebraska Medicaid payoff is starting to get some other states really ticked off? Hmmm?
