Posted on 11/22/2009 6:49:49 PM PST by freespirited
Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana said shell vote to move ahead with the Senate health bill, but has three conditions before she agrees to vote yes on the final bill. Those conditions are important, because Ms. Landrieu is one of the Democratic swing votes Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) needs to win final passage. Here they are:
1) More tax credits for small business to buy health insurance. The issue is a consistent theme for Ms. Landrieu, who is chairman of the Senate Small Business Committee. The bill already includes some credits at a cost of $27 billion over a decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
2) Measures to prevent sharp health premium increases between now and the time the bill goes into effect. Ms. Landrieu noted that several years would pass between passage of the bill and 2014, when many of its provisions take effect including the introduction of insurance exchanges where people could comparison-shop for plans.
3) A better and bipartisan solution to the question of a government-run, health-insurance plan sought by liberal Democrats. The current bill includes the public plan, with an option for states not to participate. But Ms. Landrieu indicated she preferred a proposal by Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe, under which the public plan would be triggered only if other steps didnt make coverage affordable.
Will she get what she wants? Mr. Reid can probably offer something on the first two conditions, but the third one is tougher because many Senate Democrats insist the public plan must be part of the bill from the start.

Hey mary,forget it.You’re just an old fat whore and nothing more.
What BS on her part - all this said to make it look like she’s not the wholesale prostitute that she is....she knows exactly how she’s going to vote. Forget the posturing, Mary, we know what your price was, and it wasn’t all that much to sell out your country.
What ,she wants another $100 million?
She sold us out for less than a dollar apiece. F... her!!!
Sorry for the cuss word but it’s the only way I can express my feelings for this woman.
A bigger bribe, no doubt. I wonder how much it will take to buy her vote this time?
What? $100 MILLION in perks for her state got her to turn-tail and vote for this to go to the floor for debate in the first place!
Not only has it been established that she’s a wh@re (price tag - 100 million dollars) but she’s a GREEDY one, to boot!
We all know she is a cheap whore so perhaps Reid needs to pay her $300 MM, on top of the original $100 MM, for another yes vote.
She’s established what she is...all that remains is determining a price.
And her vote only cost us 300 million dollars! All for a bill no one wants or likes.
And she’s poised to win next year.
Have a nice day. :D:D:D:D
Dear Mary: We know what you are...we just don’t know what you charge.
Mary go back to the street corner and do what you do best
Oh, PULEEEEZE...give it a break, Landrieu!
We already how VERY IMPORTANT you are! ha.
Now try to” clean it up ‘ before the S... hits the fan!
do you really think we are THAt stupid.?
Arrest her for extortion!
One condition. A minimum of $100 million dollars for New Orleans shanty town.
I hope you peruse Free Republic Mary. You should know you’ve taken a huge jump up on the list of people who will regret what they’ve done to this country.
Everything I read makes it more and more madness. Sure, just add a provision against price increases. Will the Congress snap its fingers or wiggle its nose to make this magic work? It’s all crazy.
bought and paid for by the dems. She is a big old whore.
This “Big Easy” shakedown is just a little more subtle than the Chicago thug-hustle. Illinois’ handout must be next on the runway.
"Are you a Hoooooker?!"
Once you take money from your John, it’s too late to argue that you’ll only spit. Yeah, that’s right. You are more of a whore than a representative in a democratic republic.
She’s already established what she is. Now she’s simply haggling about the price.
Meet her cellmate...Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark)
Ms Lincoln claimed that groups had spent $3.3m on advertising in her state of Arkansas. She said she would refuse to yield to either side, but was shocked by the unbelievable type of threats she had received.
These ad groups seem to think this is all about my re-election. I simply think they dont know me very well, she said on the Senate floor.
Since that is all she knows is politics I think I know her pretty well but I also know she doesn’t need the job. It sounds as if she is willing to lose her seat to get this ‘health care’ bill passed. PUKE!
This is absolutely essential!
“Landrieu Sets Conditions for Her Vote”
At this point, isn’t that kind of like a hooker saying “no kissing”?
Mary sure doesn’t want for herself, the insurance plan she will vote for the rest of us!
She knows darn well that isn't a remote possibility.
All whores work a street corner. She is working the intersection of Obama Street and Pelosi Avenue....
Oh now, she has become a lying crook who thinks the public will believe her. She will get none of it; only on paper which will magically disappear.
Get out Mary. We don’t need political you know whats.
Now Baby Face Landrieu gets snippy. Get over yourself already.
Mary’s vote isn’t in doubt imo. She and Carville are hosting a fundraiser for Harry Reid in New Orleans on Dec. 12, 2009.
If the Senate was in the private sector, Landrieu would be arrested and sent to prison. The democrat party stinks with corruption and they disgust me to my core.
That is nice of her.
Anyone who does not believe that obama care was not designed in the pits of Hell is only fooling themselves.
Everyone of the senators who voted for could have voted against letting this monstrosity to the floor for debate. All 60 of them are to blame, not just three who said they were on the fence in order to sell out for whatever price they could get.
All 60 of them need to go!!!
My guess is she has already agreed to vote on the final,
this is just CYA to make it look good.
“See, I tried, I really did! etc.
Landrieu is a puppet whose strings are now pulled by Ram Manual. She has joined the ranks of the bend over the desk politicians who will take the reach around path.
Soon she will go down in abject infamy , in the history of our nation.
What’s the use of a new Landrieu beach Condo on the LA coast, if the peasants keep raiding and lootlng it. That is where we are headed.She doesn’t get it.
Three conditions? Landrieu must be channeling Monty Python.
And the Lord spake, saying, “First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once at the number three, being the third number be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.”
bought and paid for by the dems....etc...
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The dems may have bought her,
BUT WE DAMN SURE PAID FOR IT and all those bloodsuckers will hold up the vote until their pockets are lined with OUR GOLD then the SOBs will shove the ‘f’n’ thing down our throat anyway....screw em all
My.my,my how really, really whorish of you.
They will have been bought with our money. And we will have their ass at the polls.
I agree, all 60 should go, but most of those are in safe states where there is no chance of them being defeated. We need to concentrate on the races where our dollars and time will make a difference.
She is bought and paid for, her vote is in the bag. The rest of this is just circus acts to cash in on her five min of fame. She will do as she is told by the rest of the Democratic Socialists.
“Whore names price”
A can't imagine the voters in the following states wanting their senators to vote for government run health insurance.

I don’t think she is up for re-election until 2014.
I think you may be right, which ones are up in 2010?
You are absolutely right. We need a list of the most vulnerable and we need to hammer them with calls telling them we will work against them in their next election.
