National Democratic Committee responds to Jindal's healthcare plan
Written by 

jindal-obamaThe Democratic National Committee National Press Secretary, Michael Czin, has released a statement concerning a healthcare plan presented to the nation by Presidential hopeful, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal:   

Below please find a response from me on the health care plan Governor Jindal announced this am:

“After six years of failed leadership from Bobby Jindal, Louisiana has one of the highest rates of uninsured residents in the entire country. Today, more than one in five Louisianans do not have health insurance. And as Governor, Jindal has made things even worse by callously refusing Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion that would benefit 265,000 of Jindal’s own constituents – all because he’s putting his own rigid partisanship and political ambition ahead of what’s good for his state.

“The plan Governor Jindal announced today – much like the Ryan Budget – starts by repealing Obamacare, which could result in millions of Americans being kicked off their current health care plans and bring back the worst parts of the old, failed health care system. Both plans would roll back crucial protections and take us back to broken system where insurance companies were in the driver’s seat, end Medicare as we know it by implementing voucher systems, and gutting Medicaid funding that benefits millions of Americans.

“Jindal’s plan is nothing more than a rehash of failed Republican ideas that have been – and will continue to be – rejected by the voters.”

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.

    Edwards got some rough treatment from a congressional committee in Washington, D.C. when he testified before it recently about the state’s response to flood problems.
