In the Health Care Bill just reported out of the Senate Finance Committee, the Majority Leader procured for Nevada special treatment regarding Medicare cutbacks otherwise applicable to all states, except for Michigan, Oregon, and Rhode Island, who also get the special deal. Senators from other states are ticked. They want special treatment for their states, too.
How about this: No special treatment for any particular state. I thought this was National Health Care, as in the United States of America.
If the bill isn't good for all of us, maybe it just isn't a good bill.
