A Mystery Bought Vote

We Know what Ben Nelson got for his yes vote. Who sold theirs for a cool $100,000,000?

“$100,000,000 for a ‘Health Care Facility’ ‘at a public research university in the United States that contains a state’s sole public academic medical and dental school'” (p. 328 of the manager’s amendment).

Considering how proud Sens. Landrieu and Nelson are of the funds they secured for their respective states’ why is this senator so shy? I think they are a little ashamed of being such a cheap date for Harry Reid. A hundred million isn’t even a rounding error to the majority leader. He’s making history you know and he’ll spend whatever it takes of the taxpayers’ money to get there.
