"Blue Dog" Dem trades Children for a deal.

Politico reports......
Sen. Mary Landrieu got the "Louisiana Purchase." Sen. Ben Nelson got the federal government to pick up most his state's future Medicaid tab -- forever.

As part of the deal to win Nelson's support, the federal government will pay for Nebraska's new Medicaid recipients. It's a provision worth about $45 million over the first decade......

Nelson also struck a deal on abortion funding that allows states to prohibit abortion coverage in the new insurance exchanges and requires that health plans that provide abortion services segregate the premiums from federal funds so that taxpayer money doesn't pay for abortions.
That means that the companies will still be perform abortions, but THIS money over here won't pay for abortions, just THIS other money over here will pay for abortions.
What a load of CROCK.
