GOP attorney generals threaten suit over Nebraska health deal

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Republican attorneys general in 13 states say congressional leaders must remove Nebraska’s political deal from the federal health care overhaul bill or face legal action, according to a letter provided to The Associated Press Wednesday.

“We believe this provision is constitutionally flawed,” South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster and the 12 other attorneys general wrote in the letter to be sent Wednesday night to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“As chief legal officers of our states we are contemplating a legal challenge to this provision and we ask you to take action to render this challenge unnecessary by striking that provision,” they wrote.

In a rare Christmas Eve vote, Senate Democrats pushed sweeping health care legislation to the brink of Senate passage, crushing a year-end Republican filibuster against President Obama’s call to remake the nation’s health care system. The 60-39 vote marked the third time in as many days Democrats posted a supermajority needed to advance the legislation.

GOP attorney generals threaten suit over Nebraska health deal

I can’t fault these attorneys general, not in ANY way. But if we’re going to stand against the oh so sweetheart deal that Ben Nelson got for Nebraska, why can we go after the biggest WHORE in the Senate? I am talking about Mary *$300M* Landrieu of Louisiana.

Landrieu sold her vote on ObamaCare to harry Reid for a paltry $300 MILLION dollars!

“It’s not $100 million, it’s $300 million, and I’m proud of it and will keep fighting for it,�? she told reporters after a floor speech announcing her support of a vote to begin debate on healthcare reform. SOURCE

I don’t care what you call it or how you look at it, Mary Landrieu sold her vote. In doing so, she sold her integrity as well, what integrity she had that is. She prostituted her vote! I don’t care how you cut it, she has whored herself to Harry Reid and this debacle known as ObamaCare!

Last week, McMaster said he was leading several other attorneys general in an inquiry into the constitutionality of the estimated $100 million deal he has dubbed the “Cornhusker Kickback.”

I am proud to say, our Texas Attorney General, Mr. Greg Abbott, has signed on to this.

The letter was signed by top prosecutors in Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington state. All are Republicans, and McMaster and the attorneys general of Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania are running for governor in their respective states. SOURCE

I am fairly certain that the cry your hear in the background is the sniveling leftists as they cry, “Curses, foiled again!”.

I think we all know that the left will say this action by the attorneys general is nothing more than a brazen political move designed to stop the Dems from giving, GIVING I say, giving Americans the healthcare they truly deserve.

McMaster says if the bill goes through to final approval with the benefit to Nebraska, taxpayers in the other 49 states will have to pay for it.
