Health care bill gets Mary Landrieu's stamp of approval
nola.com ^ | 12/15/09 | Jonathan Tilove

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."

Landrieu's statement, issued under the headline, "Now is the Time to Pass Health Care Reform," is the most positive she has issued about the health care plan, which has been the subject of intensive negotiations in recent weeks.

As if she really understood the contents of the bill that they want to vote on before Christmas...

What were they saying about the US Senate being the "world's greatest deliberative body"?

What a joke...

Right, the same lunatics who a few days ago were selling the public option/ medicare expansion. Now a few days later they have the best thing since sliced bread.

No republican input. No public hearings. Absolute insanity.

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.

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.

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.

This magnificent (sarc) bill has:

>> No Single Payer
>> No public option
>> No expanded Medicare coverage
>> No drug importation
>> No cost controls
>> No renegotiation of drug prices
>> Capped annual coverage for care
>> Individual mandated coverage
>> Anti-trust exemption for insurance companies
>> A tax on middle class insurance plans
>> Taxes that start up in January, but benefits that don’t start until 2014

Why would'nt Mary like it????

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.

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.

Awwwwwww... /s

Excellent.
