Watch Senator Ben Nelson backtrack on his sweetheart healthcare deal:
“I’ve been in serious discussions with Senate leaders and others to secure changes in the bill to treat all states equally,” Nelson added. “At the end of the day, whatever Nebraska gets will apply to all states.”
Did some sharp reporter back him into a corner to get that statement out of him? Nope — it’s from a press release from the Senator’s own office.
That’s the worst case of flop sweat I’ve seen in a long time, and Nelson isn’t even up for reelection this year.
