“Senator Nelson insisted that he had not asked for the Cornhusker Kickback to be placed in the U.S. Senate version of the health care bill to secure his vote. Senator Nelson told the attorney general that it was simply a ‘marker’ placed in the U.S. Senate version of the bill and assured the attorney general that it would be ‘fixed,’ says the memo.
The document goes on to say: “Senator Nelson said it would be ‘fixed’ by extending the Cornhusker Kickback (100% federal payment) on Medicaid to every state.”
First off, Nelson is a liar. If he did NOT ask for the $100 million, then what caused him to change his "pro-life" position? The rising of the sun? The coming of nightfall? A full Lewinsky?
Second, if ObamaCare V 3.6 will offset ALL Medicaid increases to ALL States, we can rest assured that the bill will be far more than <$130Bn> in budget effect over 10 years.
