Rachel Maddow talks to Ben Nelson about the cuts he and his "bipartisan group" made to the stimulus bill and Nelson uses No Child Left Behind and special education mandates not being funded as an excuse to not give additional funds to education as was wanted in the House bill. Rachel calls him out for the compromises he's made making the bill less stimulative but Nelson refuses to acknowledge that during the interview.

As Think Progress has noted, Nelson's compromise means 12 to 15 percent fewer jobs than the House bill.
