One of the major questions, apparently never asked and certainly not answered in the Louisiana US Senate race and in other races during this mid-term election is this—what would happen to healthcare in this country should Obamacare be repealed?
POLITICO: LANDRIEU’S EFFECTIVENESS
The Mary Landrieu campaign is circulating an article by Politico that highlights the effectiveness of her Energy Committee and her Homeland Security committee and her role as a legislator. According to a Politico infographic, she is one of the most effective Senators in terms of co-sponsoring successful legislation during the “do nothing” Congress.
The Cassidy campaign and the Republicans have dismissed her effectiveness or “clout”, claiming she has been a puppet of Obama and would be backing Harry Reed for Senate Majority Leader and thus, whatever clout she might have will hurt Louisiana.
Just maybe Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, the national GOP, the Louisiana GOP and others should get their facts right before they fan the flames of fear for their own political purposes.
Plenty of questions and theoretical remedies, false hopes, but no real solutions.
The United States Senate and the US elections are now two weeks away. I hear promises, attacks, and commercials by groups who have no real interest in Louisiana at all and who provide no real answers. Their goal are to win at all costs. They throw out red meat knowing there are plenty of angry and hungry dogs ready for the next scrap.
The Louisiana GOP is taunting Mary Landrieu over the Ebola ban issue.
Today, the LAGOP issued this statement:
Copping an endorsement
The final-push endorsement siren bell has screeched and Congressman Bill Cassidy can now claim he has the law on his side. The Louisiana Fraternal Order of Police is supporting Cassidy. Earlier this year, the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association announced its backing of Senator Mary Landrieu.
The Louisiana US Senate race starts in earnest tonight as Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy, Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu and Tea Party candidate Rob Maness face the voters.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is making news once again, courtesy of Politico and other national publications, who obviously have little to do but to run OpEds by the Governor in his bizarre presidential quest, while never probing into the governor's own record as he makes his self-serving comments.
One Republican lawmaker has a solution to what Louisiana should do with a budget surplus, should it really exist. His and other legislators' phones have been ringing off the hook due to a crises created by the Jindal administration’s privatization of OGB. Today, Louisiana Representative Kenneth Havard issued this statement today:
There are three story lines today as the US Senator candidates ready for their first televised debate.
Story line 1# Two of the three main candidates will appear while one, Bill Cassidy, has chosen not to participate. As a result, the Mary Landrieu campaign is taking advantage of the empty chair by sharing words of other media.
