Heineman says no way to Baucus plan

Governor Dave Heineman is sending a letter to Nebraska’s U.S. Senators and other congressional representatives urging them to oppose the health care reform proposal released by Senator Baucus. Governor Heineman tells us that it is not in Nebraska’s best interests.
Governor Heineman says this new unfunded federal Medicaid mandate could result in higher taxes on Nebraskans or result in cutting state aid to Nebraska’s school districts and colleges and universities.
