And the plot thickens yet again as Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman is calling on Ben Nelson to vote no on the phantom Senate Health Bill, whether there’s a threat to Offutt or not.
“America’s health care system needs improvement, but this bill is not the answer,” Heineman said in a letter to Nelson. “You are now the 60th vote, and as Governor of the State that we both represent, I urge you to vote against this bill and against cloture.”
By the by…the Senate bill in question isn’t even on the floor. No one has seen it but Harry Reid and his cabal. So do not tell me both sides are the same. The Republicans aren’t perfect – far from it – but I don’t recall them ever trying something like this.
