Open Letter to [Louisiana Senator] Mary Landrieu
LouisianaConservative.com ^ | November 23, 2009 | avman

Posted on 11/23/2009 8:49:00 AM PST by rrstar96

Dear Senator Mary Landrieu,

In the words of Ricky Ricardo, you got some splainin’ to do. This state is clearly against this health care bill and you voted to move it forward despite the overwhelming wishes of your constituents. Avoiding your constituents can not continue to be your response. Reserving and filling the front four rows with people who are obviously for the health care bill at a town hall only serves as an indication that you are more interested in advancing this agenda than serving your constituents. Don’t hide from your constituents over this Thanksgiving break, don’t stay in Washington D.C., come home and face your community, that is, if you still have an inkling of care for this community.

Come home, hit the airwaves, and tell the people exactly what this bill will do that you liked it enough to vote for it. Tell us, and cite the pages so that we may verify that those very provisions that you are talking about are in there. “Uh, Uh” is not an adequate excuse. Niether is pushing forward this agenda for the sake of change. Many of your fellow Democrats have figured out that our nation would be much better off with either Bush or Clinton in office, and you are betraying even them. With Obama, “Change” means, changing everything about this country, even things that make us a good country, and especially the things that make us a great country.

Senator Landrieu, certainly you have noticed that this President has chosen not to judge the terrorist who shot up Fort Hood, but quickly judged an officer as acting stupidly, even as the President admitted he did not know all the facts. Perhaps you noticed when this President sat idly by and did nothing to aid the people of Iran in their attempt to overthrow a dictator, a dictator, mind you, that is hostile to this country when those people are not, and yet quickly coming to the defense of wannabe dictator Manuel Zelaya and criticizing a legal coup. He denounced the coup saying it was the end of coups in Central America, and yet he sided with Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, and Daniel Ortega, all who held their own bloody coups and leading their respective nations into poverty. The evidence is mounting against this President and he shows little interest in taking a more pro-America stance. It’s not about race, it’s not about gender, it’s not even about political parties anymore, as even many of your fellow Democrats are beginning to break away. Will you choose to side with your fellow Louisianians, or will you side with the him?

You campaigned for re-election running far away from the current administration, but quickly ran into their arms like a distraught teenaged girl. How disappointing you have been to this state. Mary, tell us what you liked about this bill, these four reams of a paper monstrosity, and cite the pages. Do you like that it ends HSA’s, of which many of your constituents are happy with and serves as a cheaper alternative? Don’t just come back with the Harry Reid talking points that we can get off of any talk show, give us real substance.

And one last thing Senator, do as you wish, but if you vote for this bill and you won’t listen to your constituents, if you won’t take your job serious, then I ask that you resign so that this state might have two Senators representing this state, instead of just one.

We need to start sending her “pieces of silver” (fake, of course).

Anyone else want to participate?

I’m also REALLY sending her and all the other Dems a pink slip... with the notice on it that it will be
effective, November, 2010.

Well said.

She will claim ... ‘LOOK AT THE IOO MILLION DOLLARS I’M BRINGING TO THE STATE. I did good.’

She may actually believe it too. It seems that they all are willing to bend to the will of the President, if the price is enough!

God help us in our day, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Yeah..I’m not a constituent but the pink slip thing is good for any of those who choose to turn their backs on those who sent them to office to represent. They are so convinced that we think they really care about us,and we’re so gullible that we will all re-elect them blindly.They need to know that we voters have decided to GO ROGUE!!!!

She has already discounted that story - it is 300 million. Guess that just makes her a really expensive prostitute instead of just an expensive prostitute.

Disappointment? She is a disgrace. She knew fully we were against the healthcare bill but ignored us. We will ignore her come election time.

Yeah, I think we know how the game is played. With great weeping and gnashing of teeth Landrieu, and the Arkansan Senator "reluctantly" voted to move this 'flawed bill' along - with the expectation that it will be changed when it comes for the 'real vote'... It won't get changed (significantly), and then they'll make a big show of voting against it when it no longer needs 60 votes to pass, but just a simple majority. They'll tell their people back home that they opposed it - but they just didn't have the votes...

I'm sure the real reason for this 'Health Care' bill is that the government is broke - due to gross fiscal mismanagement (the type which would cause most people to get carted to prison). Their Social Security and Medicare Ponzi schemes are out of money - and they need some new revenue stream to add into their shell game.

At this point these votes are just a game. The Congress 'ruling class' will get their money by whatever schemes they can devise (Cap and Tax, 'Health Care').
Flush the Dems and flush the Rinos...

VOTE HER OUT!!!

That may not be so easy. She was re-elected to a third term in 2008 by a margin of 6-7% over her opponent. So she's safe until 2014, plenty of time for people to forget.

Actually, since her first two elections were so close, many attributed her victories to voter fraud. Much of that alleged fraud was centered in the New Orleans area. Katrina devastated those districts. Add to that the departure of Marc Morial and the loss of his political support and I truly thought that she was very vulnerable.
Needless to say, I was shocked when she won so readily. I've voted against her every time and will continue to do so, but I'm a little pessimistic.

100 million dollars in a state of about 5 million people comes to about 20 dollars per person.

So Mary sells out her constituents health care freedoms for pocket change.

300 million dollars to Louisiana comes to 60 dollars per person.

I can't imagine any reasonble person thinking that their heath care freedom is worth 60 bucks.

Right. It makes her look good in the minds of the thoughtless. It works over and over in every state in America.

That is why Senators are essentially voted into power/office for their lifetime anymore. Term limits are essential. It would take a national referendu, I expect, to get that in place. They will never vote to vote themselves out of office.

At this time, Mary Landrieu cannot be recalled. According to a 1960s court decision, state recalls law cannot be used against federal officials. I have a real problem with this as these elections are held at the state level. As recently as January, a recall was thrown out for essentially the same reasoning (Cao of N.O.). Landrieu can be removed only by the U.S. Congress, which I am sure you realize is NOT going to happen,if she is convicted of a crime (say bribery), or by her own resignation (which I also do not see happening). I would suggest that voters continually remind each other of her behavior and often. I would also recommend working hard in the 2010 elections to vote out those who have supported her in anyway. Be sure to send a message that she is the reason for your actions.

As angry as I am about her behavior, I would caution against nasty personal attacks as this is the kind of behavior often equated with the left.
