Modern Healthcare - The Associated Press

Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) says he didn’t hold back his vote on healthcare reform legislation just to get more money for his state, “but to fix the unfunded Medicaid mandate for all states.” Nelson was answering criticism from Republican California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who said concessions made to win the senator’s crucial vote to pass the Senate reform bill were a “rip-off” for California.
