Soon-to-be former Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark) “on Tuesday said a political deal that benefits Nebraska and may have clinched a lawmaker’s support for health care legislation should be removed from the bill“:
The Democratic senator from Arkansas said she was disappointed about a provision in the Senate’s health care bill that will require the federal government to permanently pay the entire cost of Medicaid expansion in Nebraska, while only paying the costs of expansion in the other 49 states for three years.
Um, Blanche, so, why, pray tell, did you vote for the provision? You could have insisted it be removed before you voted for Harry Reid’s health care bill.
Seems like this lady says one thing in Arkansas and votes another way in Washington.
