PostSubject: Nebraska introduces bill to restrict Health Care Laws.   Thu Jan 14, 2010 11:20 pm

Nebraska is "kicking-back" and has introduced a bill that, should it pass, will likely challenge Obamacare, should it ever see the light of day. We should expect to see other states follow in kind. (Three "should's" in two sentences. "Is that legal?")

I goofed -- When I passed this on to you, I said "bill," but this is actually a resolution. If passed, it will put this proposed Constitutional Amendment on the Nebraska ballot. There are other ways to get it before the voters -- petition, for example -- if this resolution doesn't get voted on or passed.
This time of year I read hundreds of bills and resolutions -- sorry I didn't clarify on this one when we talked.
There are many initiatives across the US to take on faulty aspects of health care reform. States are posturing. Nebraska has had a unique role so far, between Sen Ben Nelson's critical 60th Senate vote after securing two key provisions (no federal funds for abortion and federal funding for health care's mandates for Nebraska) and this resolution. The "Cornhusker Kickback" (Sen McCain coined the phrase) was initially seen as Nelson simply "selling his vote." I think people are now catching on to Nelson's drift -- Abortion funding was a no go for his vote; securing federal funding for Nebraska in perpetuity was an opening for other states to demand the same -- Obama care isn't just doggoned expensive, it levies a heavy invoice on the states to fund it themselves. While Ben is doing his part in the Senate, members of the state legislature are trying to draw their own line, preparing for a legal battle on whether the compulsive nature of Obamacare is constitutional. It worked for public education -- people can opt out and school their own children, establish charter schools, or in some states get vouchers for sending their children to private schools. Bottom line -- It ain't gonna be over for a while, even after the confetti flies.
So sorry for earlier error -- I know this dents your reliance on me as an accurate source. Please forgive. I will try to regain your confidence. Thanks for doing what you do.

Zorro, your reputation remains untarnished. okay Thanks for correcting the error. That is the beauty of the "New Media" is that corrections can be made by the input of anyone having knowledge. For my part as I look at my post it states that it is an amendment. I should have noticed it. Oh boy In any case the information is now more accurate.

What a clever idea for Nebraska. I knew they had the "right stuff." whee
