Louisiana Dems snip at Alario, Donahue for trying to keep SAVE ACT alive in House
Written by 

alarioMore from the Louisiana Democratic Party as the Louisiana legislative session begins its last week.  According to the democrats, Senator Jack Donahue and Senate President John Alario, are being unsuccessful in their attempts to use parliamentary procedures to keep a Jindal’s sponsored-bill alive. 

Here is the party's last email denouncing Jindal and his attempt to pass what is called the SAVE Act.

 After a narrow defeat in the House Ways and Means Committee yesterday that saw 10 legislators unite across party lines in defiance of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s bullying, state Sen. Jack Donahue began a series of desperate ploys to pass his money-laundering scam through backdoor maneuvering. Voted down in an open committee hearing, Donahue’s scam legislation was bolted on to an array of unrelated bills overnight, in hopes of forcing the lower chamber’s hand. 

Together with Republican Senate President John Alario, Donahue continues to indulge in parliamentary games and trickery, abusing their time in the people’s house with legislation that serves no one but Jindal and his doomed presidential ambitions--- at the expense of Louisiana taxpayers. An attempt to hijack Rep. Joel Robideaux’s film tax credit has already failed today, but Donahue and Alario remain determined to keep reviving their convoluted scheme again and again, wasting their time and taxpayers’ money as the session nears its close. 

“Rep. Donahue and his allies are wasting time playing these shell games, while the window is closing on any opportunity to address the $1.6 billion deficit,” said Stephen Handwerk, executive director of the Louisiana Democratic Party. “It’s an insult to working families that Republicans in the House and Senate would rather play games trying to appease Grover Norquist than to address the budget catastrophe they created.”

For many reasons, perhaps, Wednesday could be considered one of the most important days of the 2015 Louisiana legislative session, at least, to date.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
