Democratic senator Mary Landrieu says she's embarrassed to go to places in Europe like France and Spain because some Americans do not have health insurance. Landrieu, who is up for reelection in 2014, represents the state of Louisiana.
People are scared when theyre sick, and theyre much stronger when theyre well, Landrieu said at a Friday lunch, according to the American Press. Its embarrassing to me to go to places like France and Spain ... and their workers all manage to have health insurance that cant be taken away.
The report adds:
Landrieu said Louisiana has more working people that are poor than any other state. Of the 2 million people who file taxes in the state, she said, 70 percent have incomes lower than $50,000 a year. She said another 12 percent have an- nual incomes between $50,000 and $75,000.
When people ask me what kind of health care people need, I think they need something they can afford, Landrieu said.
Landrieu has doubled down on her support for Obamacare.
Republican governor Bobby Jindal, also of Louisiana is already blasting Landrieu for her comments. On Twitter, Jindal writes:

She still hasn’t read the bill, or seen any of the consequences.
That just makes us even Mary: I’m embarrassed you are a senator of my country.
Is there anything keeping her from moving to one of those countries? I don’t think anyone will miss her.
Too bad she is not embarrassed to be in the US where the gov’t lies and disobeys the laws.
....for the first time in her life,anyway........
France and Spain eh, Mary ???
Well Im not in the least embarassed to go...
He can go to H3ll! Now!!!!
France and Spain’s health care can and will be invalidated when the Arabs take over; in fact, those Europeans allowed to survive will become slaves.
Then you probably won’t go there, right Senator, even though you would have voted with the French and the Spanish elites the entire time they paved the way for what is coming.
Is Landrieu aware that 200 million Americans are embarrassed by her?
It took over 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive. The guy was in obvious pain. They worked on him - for what seemed like eternity - right there on the sidewalk.
By the time we left, at least forty five minutes later, they still hadn't put the guy into the ambulance. We got a first hand look at socialized medicine.
Yeah well they're probably embarrassed that you are even in their countries. How can they possibly explain the presence of such a dumb ass to their children?
Mary, I understand just how you feel. Why just the other day, I was apologizing to a friend from Italy that the people of Louisiana had elected you to the Senate of the United States. I was so embarrassed, I could not help myself
Hey Mary...check out the "Liverpool Pathway" to see how the death panels work in UK...thousands euthanized every year
And for those still walking...this guy was refused treatment for a broken arm because he had been smoking
I hope the republicans can find a good candidate to run against her. It’s past time her ass got booted.
My guess is she’ll be making a run to the right until election day. Then she’ll go back to being the liberal clown that she is.
Some of those mono-ethnic nations such as Sweden and Norway do a decent, honest enough job with socialized health care. But America has too many ethnic and political divisions so 0-care is going to turn into rip-off city. FUBAR with affirmative action hack bureaucrats, liberals too, lording over a white majority that basically wants nothing to do with this 0-crap and prefers private insurance and HMOs to provide and insure
Mary Landrieu is too retarded to realize this and even if she did she would say nothing because it would not get her re-elected.
I don't speak French, but tried my college German on them when they wouldn't recognize English. It really angered some of the French.
Landrieu is a French name. She should just retire and move to France.
I’m embarrassed to go to Europe because of politicians like you.
