Ben Nelson to Henry McMaster: Call off the Dogs!

When I first read this story, I actually had to laugh, who in the hell does Ben Nelson think he is asking the attorney general of another state to forgo any legal action. Nelson has been caught with his pants down and like the cat in the litter box he is desperately trying to cover his shit up. Ben it doesn't work, it stinks to high heaven no matter what you do. As my grandfather use to say "don't sh*t in your own nest", well Ben you big stinking turd has been discovered by the people in Nebraska and the nation. Pack your bags in 2012, and prepare to return to a home where you are no longer welcome. I know its tough to be old and unwanted, but you made your bed Ben now try and sleep in it.

Senator Nelson the people of Nebraska are honest hard working people who want no part of your special deal. Honesty and hard work however, must be something you and that "band of angels" (sanctimonious hypocrites) have forgotten because of your long stays in that shit-hole called the District of Criminals".

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) reached out Thursday evening to South Carolina GOP Attorney General Henry McMaster, the leader of a group of 13 Republican state attorneys general who are threatening to file suit against the Senate health care bill, and urged him to forgo any legal action.

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) reached out Thursday evening to South Carolina GOP Attorney General Henry McMaster, the leader of a group of 13 Republican state attorneys general who are threatening to file suit against the Senate health care bill, and urged him to forgo any legal action, POLITICO has learned.

According to a copy of a memo sent by McMaster’s chief of staff to other GOP state attorneys general detailing the call, Nelson asked McMaster to “call off the dogs,” a reference to recent threats by the state AGs to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a Medicaid provision in the bill that benefits Nebraska at the expense of other states.

Under the terms of a deal Nelson cut with Senate leaders to secure his crucial vote for the health care package, Nebraska would be exempted from having to pay for the coverage of its new Medicaid enrollees—leaving the federal government to pick up the tab. The deal is expected to cost the federal government $100 million over the next 10 years.

Jake Thompson, a Nelson spokesman, declined comment when reached by POLITICO Friday.

The memo, written by McMaster Chief of Staff Trey Walker, explains that Nelson told McMaster that the Medicaid deal had not been his idea, and that the same Medicaid exemption would be extended to other states.

“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. read more from Politico
