Don’t Challenge My Pork
Nelson Urges State AGs To Drop Healthcare Reform Constitutional Challenge. Politico (1/1, Isenstadt) reported Sen. Ben Nelson “reached out Thursday evening to South Carolina GOP Attorney General Henry McMaster, the leader of a group of 13 Republican state attorneys general who are threatening to file suit against the Senate health care bill, and urged him to forgo any legal action. … According to a copy of a memo sent by McMaster’s chief of staff to other GOP state attorneys general detailing the call, Nelson asked McMaster to ‘call off the dogs,’ a reference to recent threats by the state AGs to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a Medicaid provision in the bill that benefits Nebraska at the expense of other states.”
