Comments: The Best Health Care Bill Money Can Buy

I usually avoid FNC's Greta VanSustern. Her show is routinely the tabloid segment of the evening. But I give her credit for her guests, her commentary and her interviews during this healthcare debate. Last night she had Nebraska's governor on [video here] and they discussed how he had called Senator Nelson's bluff on removing the Nebraska Windfall from the bill:

Governor Dave Heineman joins us live. Governor, so will you be asking Senator Ben Nelson to tell the Senate that you guys don't -- Nebraska doesn't want that $100 million? Are you going to ask him to do that?

GOV. DAVE HEINEMAN, R - NEB.: Well, we've already made it clear, Greta, we want all these special deals removed. In fact, this afternoon, our other United States senator, Senator Mike Johanns, introduced an amendment to strip all of the special interest deals from this bill, and the Democrats objected! That is really unfortunate. All these special deals should be removed from the bill.
