Written by 

vitter-memoBy email blast today, Republican US Senator and candidate for Louisiana governor, David Vitter has released his healthcare plan for the state.

In doing so, Vitter said in his email, in relevant parts:

 

“93,000 Louisianians have lost coverage that they liked and wanted to keep. Struggling middle class families have seen premiums and other costs skyrocket. And 866,000 of our citizens are still uninsured. Obamacare has obviously not worked. We need solid Louisiana solutions, not mandates from the federal government.

Read Chapter 6 of the Vitter plan, called “Improving our Public-Private Hospital Partnerships, Reforming Medicaid”

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
