Sen. Russ Feingold is calling on congressional leaders to remove a series of sweet deals for certain states from the final health care bill before the legislation becomes law.
The deals range from millions of extra Medicaid dollars for Nebraska to $100 million for a medical center in Connecticut to a special exemption for Florida seniors who want to keep their Medicare Advantage plan. These so-called sweeteners were added to the health care legislation in an effort to gain the support of key moderate senators who were on the fence about the bill.
On Thursday, Feingold sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asking them to “strike unwarranted provisions” that detract from the quality of the bill and “undermine public confidence in the legislative process.”
Horse. Barn Door. Poser. Lying sack.
We remind you that Rusty the Ideologue voted FOR all the provisions he now finds 'unwarranted' and which 'detract' and 'undermine ...confidence.'
AND Widdle Wusty defended this piece of crap, saying that 'it was a good deal for Wisconsin.'
What about conscience protections? Or forcing taxpayers to buy elective abortions, Rusty?
Or Statism as a whole, Rusty?
