GOP Attorney General’s may sue over the ‘Nabraska Medicaid Compromise’…….

Now that it has become public knowledge that Senator Ben Nelson has managed to get Nebraska exempt from paying Medicaid expansion costs, which could force other states to pay higher amounts to fund the new non-profit insurance companies to be created under the new Healthcare bill…..Republican Attorney generals from around the country are studying if they should sue to get the same deal for their states….

Of course this a partisan study…since the AG’s are being urged to take the  action by the Republican party….And Nelson (D-Neb.) Is now in a pissing match with his republican state governor, Gov. David Heineman , who is threatening to not take the money saved from Nelson’s dealing ……(he’ll take the savings….you wait and see)…….

Ah,  politics.!………

Chuck Schumer and Ben Nelson….pheasant hunting…in Nebraska?……

The New York Senator who lives in Brooklyn ( the Boro has more people in it then the entire state of Nebraska )…..recently went to Nebraska to go hunting…he got the invite from Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska……that is the senior Senator from New York in the picture accompanying the piece..yea, that’s him with the bird…and the shotgun……

While a lot of people have very short memories….I don’t …the senior senator from New York has been very, very, very helpful to his party in the senate…he has made a lot of friends, and brought in a lot of money….along the way he has made trips to many places….one of them as we see is Nebraska…people don’t understand the importance of friendship and bonds that the senate commands…Chuck Schumer does…while I really didn’t  and still don’t like his insistence that Kirsten Gillibrand get appointed to Hillary’s senate seat…I do admire Schumer’s doggedness in getting New York State money and Chucks ability to talk…..

I have no doubt that if the democrats can keep the senate …he will have the title Majority Leader someday front of his name…no doubt…..
