Senator Ben Nelson held out a bit on ObamaCare and got hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal government to cover the increased costs that will be forced on to states like Virginia as a result of this bill. Senator Mary Landrieu got 300 million dollars for Louisiana in return for her support. Some states are getting some pretty impressive special favors with taxpayer dollars as part of this deal.
I wonder what Senators Warner and Webb will secure for Virginia in return for supporting this monstrosity, which they almost certainly will. Anything?
