Cornhusker Kickback Part II

Exemption from Medicaid costs wasn't the only bribe used to buy Ben Nelson on behalf of the ObamaCare power grab. Our corrupt rulers also threw in a free hospital:

The Obama administration has delivered another budget plum to Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson and the state of Nebraska, adding more than a half-billion dollars [of your money] for a new veterans hospital in Omaha.
The move reverses a decision by Mr. Obama's own Veterans Administration of a year ago, which called for repairing an existing hospital.
The Veterans Administration made the budget switch during internal deliberations in 2009 at a time when the White House was wooing the moderate Democrat to vote for President Obama's health care overhaul bill.

How's this for understatement:

Rep. Steve Buyer of Indiana, ranking Republican on the Veterans' Affairs Committee, said, "This one doesn't smell right or feel right."

That would be a polite way of describing everything the current administration has excreted since taking power.

Compliments of Cons.Underground.
