Nelson says Nebraska first, but not Nebraska only

At a stop in Lincoln Thursday, Senator Ben Nelson continued to get questions about the so called CornHusker Kickback for Medicaid. Nelson says that he never worked to single his home state out.
“That will either be funded or it will be unmandated, it’s not going to be something Nebraska gets, that nobody else gets, my theme has been Nebraska first, Nebraska always, but not Nebraska only.”
Nelson is working on compromises between the House and Senate health care bill and says he hopes to keep the public option out of the bill and get anti-abortion language back to the way he originally proposed it.
