Happy New Year!
In Sunday's Denver Post, Colorado Attorney General Jon Suthers hit the nail on the head regarding the "Great Nebraska Payoff" ie the buyout of US Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson.
In order to secure Nelson's vote, the Democratic leadership in the US Senate inserted a provision to exempt Nebraska from its future financial share of Medicaid-which will expand greatly under Obama Care. The other 49 states would be required to pick up the tab for new Nebraska medicaid recipients.
We think that this action is not only dirty politics at its worst but is illegal.
Here is Suthers entire article. This is an issue that should concern Coloradans from both sides of the political fence.
