Today, is the end of the signup period (except for those who tried to enroll but were unable to doso) and reportedly roughly 7 million people have signed up for Obamacare
On the strongly-conservative WGSO radio talk show, host Jeff Crouere and Stephen Sabludowsky discussed the Affordable Care Act, the pros and cons. The discussion got testy and included callers chiming in to express their oppositions to the healthcare law and implementation.
The interview was also recorded via Google Hangouts, as has a number of the recent Crouere-Sabludowsky, WGSO-Bayoubuzz radio-hangout-broadcasts-webcasts. Here is the transcription. Check the video for the most accurate conversation:
One of the major issues this Louisiana legislative session is and will be the lawsuit by a levee district against the major oil and gas industry companies. Governor Jindal has been very vocal in his opposition to the lawsuit and has supported the idea of stopping the lawsuit through the legislative process during this spring's session.
Energy chair’s agenda
Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, the state’s senior senator, is now in full command of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, a key post for the Pelican state’s oil and gas industry.
The Louisiana legislature is entering into its third week of the annual legislative session. What is happening? What are the issues being discussed by the state government.
In a state, such as Louisiana, when so much of the revenues entering state and local coffers come from the Oil and Gas industries and wherre so many local jobs are dependent upon that industry, one would think that ex-Republican and Democratic governors would be supportive of stopping litigation against the members of that industry. Last year, a levee district filed a class-action lawsuit against that industry for damages inflicted upon the coast.
Obamacare and specifically the Medicaid expansion have been debated in the Louisiana legislature and throughout the political state capitols over the past few years. In a recent panel discussion at Loyola University, both former Democratic Louisiana governors, Edwin Edwards and Kathleen expressed their opinions that Louisiana should expand Medicaid in Louisiana, a policy the Louisiana GOP and governor Jindal has strongly opposed.
One of the major controversies this Louisiana legislative session is what to do about common core in K to 12.
Governors Buddy Roemer, Edwin Edwards and Kathleen Blanco are supportive of common core. They expressed their positions on the subject last week during a panel discussion at Loyola University.
The arbiters of race relations believe that no one of color should dare possess an independent thought or take a contrarian position. Thus, all African Americans must believe in the Democratic Party and liberalism. If not, you are demonized and harassed and as evidence, witness the treatment of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas or Dr. Ben Carson.
The Senate Race. Republicans have mastered the art of shooting themselves in the foot and in the process losing elections. Congressman Bill Cassidy, the Republican hopeful to defeat Senator Mary Landrieu (D), has taken the first step toward suicide by foot.
