Barbara Boxer Allows Reid To Cut Deal For Nevada, A $2 Billion Cost To California

U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer sat idly while Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid negotiated a “special deal” that would leave Californians paying for a massive new health care bill, while Nevadians get a 5-year reprieve.

From the New York Times:

Mr. Reid, a Democrat, complained about the impact on Nevada when the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Max Baucus, Democrat of Montana, unveiled his bill on Sept. 16.

Under Mr. Baucus’s original proposal, the federal government would have paid 87 percent of the new costs in Nevada. Under the modified version, the federal government would pay 100 percent of the new costs for the first five years. Severe financial problems have prompted Nevada and other states to cut spending and furlough workers, and some states have even considered releasing prison inmates to save money.

The changes came at the expense of other states, including California, Florida and Illinois, which would see significant increases in state Medicaid spending under the new formula.

Our state has over 2.3 million unemployed.  This past year alone we have seen cuts to education, the release of thousands of prisoners, and furloughs.

Where does our state come up with about $2 billion in additional costs, when we have a potential $10 billion shortfall next year?
