Time is short, the political maneuvering tense and the ultimate vote will be tight, but Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., emerged from a White House meeting with President Barack Obama on Tuesday as a full-throated enthusiast for the Senate health care bill Democrats want to enact by Christmas.
"While many of us expressed cost and bureaucracy concerns about early drafts of health care reform legislation, it is clear that the product the Senate is debating is a dramatic improvement," Landrieu said Tuesday evening.
"Senate Democrats have developed a consensus that combines the best blend of private and public approaches to reduce cost, expand coverage and increase choice and competition for Americans."

$300 million = thirty pieces of silver
A paid for whore is now giving a full throated what?
I can’t judge the whore too harshly though, as I’d be tempted to vote for whatever if I got $300 million for it.
Moon’s little girl: corrupt as her daddy. Chicago thug Hussein’s slave.
Forget about Tiger’s “ladies”. They pale in comparison to this whore.
Now Landrieu tells us that the shiny new Reid bill won't mean higher taxes and more bureaucracy. Yes, the bill that none of us can read. She promises that the unelected panels the bill creates will not create onerous and/or expensive standards on their regulatory tabula rasa.
Was there really any doubt!?
These corrupt politicians are very removed from our Founding Father’s intent and our Constitution.
soory whore but you are bought and paid for and the consquence is that NOTHING you say is seen as honest any more....maybe an unintended cosequence, but it has happened just the same....get out, you’re credability is gone, your honor is gone....look for a new job.
Of course we could also say "Resistence is futile", but I like your better!
So she doesn’t need the $300 million right? We can use that to reduce the deficit, right?
The federal government and it’s politburo have become a pack of liars.
I’ll bet she walked out of that meeting ‘full-throated’ all right.
I doubt she will be the biggest recipient before the dust clears.
This bill is so bad, even Dean is calling it terrible.
He’s certainly doing it for different reasons than you and I are, but he’s right.
Those who want a government option and full blown abortion coverage and expanded Medicare, aren’t going to vote for this pig in a poke.
