Skip to comments.Mary Landrieu runs from Nancy Pelosi & Obamacare
Posted on 03/24/2014 5:03:38 PM PDT by Trueblackman
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi boasted at last Thursday's weekly House Democrat News Conference that Obamacare was indeed a winning issue for Democrats, but Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieus actions that same day indicated otherwise. While leader Pelosi was trying to convince reporters that Obamacare was actually affordable, Senator Landrieu refuse to appear with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who was in New Orleans to promote Obamacare as the March 31st deadline fast approaches.
Both the Times-Picayune and Bayou Buzz pointed out that Senator Landrieu was not mentioned on the official schedule sent out by HHS, while Senator Landrieus brother, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, did appear with Secretary Sebelius, along with other state officials. Senator Landrieu skipped the event even as the U.S. Senate was not in session and there were no committee meetings requiring her attendance according to the officials chamber calendar.
This isnt the first time that Senator Landrieu has refused to appear with a member of the administration; just last November Senator Landrieu traveled on Air Force One with President Obama as he visited New Orleans but refused to appear with him publicly.
Senator Landrieu finds herself in a epic reelection fight as Obamacare has proven to be widely unpopular in the state, and on two occasions Senator Landrieu has publicly stated that she would indeed vote for Obamacare again if she had to. However, her campaign has changed its narrative and now claims she wants to fix Obamacare.

Run, run, run. Straight into the bayou.
Hopefully so. Amen.
PLEASE.PLEASE dont say that...many of us get our food from the by...oooohh.
There’s a gator waiting for her.
"Landrieu, help us!"
Every six years, Mary becomes a pro-life, tax cutting, small government, Reaganite who will do battle with the liberals in the Senate to preserve the conservative principles Louisianians hold dear.
Then, after the election she reverts to the liberal lap dog she really is.
It’s getting old. Maybe, just maybe, this election will be different and the voters will throw her out.
But, I doubt it.
...get the hair tint...before you leave town...
Hang Obamaocare around her neck and make her wear it!
0bamacrats can run from 0bamaCare but they can’t hide.
While reading after hurricane Katrina hit I ran across several articles written before. There was a series of investigative articles in the Picci exposing the Landrieu (Papa started HUD under Carter) and others of misappropriating HUD grants One 3,000 house had obtain over 300,000 for repairs that were never done iirc
Should be in the archives.
Aunt Phillis was on the school board who voted that buses could not be used for evacuation
The entire crew seems to be a pack of worms.

I’m almost looking forward to the re-tread commercial she has of a dock side worker claiming that Mary “saved our jobs”
BUMP To The Top for the Freeper known as Libloather for point out this otherwise and nearly missed story from last week. Well my friend, you put it out there and I covered, so enjoy your fame for it!
Hussein still pimps something that's broken?
So I guess lock-stepping Mary won't be wearing one of them DNC-issue brown shirts (cackle).
DNC FASHION NOTE: what well-dressed lock-stepping
Democrat party loyalists are wearing this election season:
DNC-ISSUE BROWN SHIRTS.
MEMO TO LOUISIANA VOTERS "Tolerant and compassionate" Landrieu (1) sold her vote to the Democrat party apparat, (2) she voted for throwing Louisianans off affordable health plans, (3) voted for nationalizing 1/6 of the US economy, (4) voted for IPAB's, (5) for decimating intergenerational transfers of wealth (grandma/pa's holdings go to the govt---not to you), (6) for pulling $750 billion out of Medicare, (7) for drug-rationing, (8) for abandoning seniors and the chronically ill.
When she had the chance to restore affordable care she voted AGAINST Sen Mike Enzi's 2010 bill.
TURNING HER BACK ON DER LEADER Landrieu ran an ad featuring her "anger" at Obama for "breaking his promise" she calculatedly pivots to attacks on the GOP over healthcare.
In Landrieu, we bear witness to the offensive, twisted mind of a Democrat---- Landrieu proves why Dems should never, ever get even close to political power.
WHAT SHE WANTS VOTERS TO BELIEVE Landrieu aired a commercial showing her at numerous public settings last fall sternly telling Obama to "keep his promise to let people keep their current health plans if they want to" w/ Landrieu taking credit----after Obama's failed attempt to make that happen.....
REALITY CHECK: Landrieu is caught on-tape, in the well of the Senate, parroting Obama's infamous lie, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan." AND THIS: If you like the insurance that you have, youll be able to keep it. (Landrieu on MSNBCs Hardball, 12/16/09)
STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature healthcare plan---ultimately enacted, by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote, into the "Affordable Care Act"
QUOTING 2008 OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor. Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
Significantly, Obamba NEVER corrected lock-stepping Democrats, all reading from the same Democrat talking points, all of them repeating the same Democrat promises---over and over again.
LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE Obama And The Dems marched in lockstep. The persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
THE LANDRIEU PAPER TRAIL IS HUGE Landrieu sold her aye vote in what Forbes Magazine dubbed "The 'Louisiana Purchase" that included a massive $4.3 Billion to Landrieu.
FORBES REPORTED the Democrats nailed Landrieus support for Obamacare w/ a greenback bribe. Landrieu, critics believe, pledged her vote in exchange for some $200 million more additional federal funds for Louisiana. Except that, due to a drafting error, the law ended up giving Louisiana $4.3 billion: more than twenty times the assigned amount. MORE HERE http://www.forbes.com/fdc/welcome_mjx.shtml
How $4.3 billion to Landrieu was attached to the Obamacare bill, and how Obama and Reid failed to catch and fix it, is yet annother indictment of the Obamacare atrocity. The payoff to Landrieu should be investigated as an indication of how EVERY Democrat came to vote for Obamacare.
<><> Where's the $4.3 billion, Mary?
BACKSTORY In the fall of 2009, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was trying to get the necessary 60 Dimocrat votes to pass the Affordable Care Act. He needed every Dim on board, which gave waffling senators a great deal of leverage. In Landrieu's case, she connivingly saw that selling her aye vote could get her maybe $200 million federal dollars. Obama complied--- Reid chalked up another vote for Obamacare---and the $4.3 Landrieu giveaway was attached to the Obamacare bill.
<><> Where's the money, Mary?
America and Mary are pregnant and the daddy has just walked away
Girls should be wary of smooth talkers
PELOSI THE MAGIC VOTE-GETTER --- FOR REPUBLICANS Seems that invoking "Pelosi" was a vote-getter......for Republicans....(cackle).
National Journal reported Repub strategists had measured which messages were most effectively persuading voters to turn in their ballots.
<><> In Jolly's race, they turned to a messagedelivered across a variety of digital platforms and emailthat focused on urging Repubs to vote now or watch Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi move one step closer to reclaiming the speaker's gavel.<><>
Never thought I would---but ya gotta love them Obama-hating Dems.
Posted At DU: the ACA says insurance companies cannot deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions. But they can--and do-- deny coverage for life-saving meds to treat p/e conditions. the ACA exchange I'm signed up w/ just denied coverage for my wife's multiple sclerosis meds. We're covered, to the tune of $700 a month...just not for what she really needs. FU, Mr. President, you piece of sh** used-car salesman.From my heart and soul, FU.
(Sign) those sentiments are so, so sweet.
HE'S FALLEN AND HE CANT GET UP (CACKLE) Obomba's Achilles Heel is the disappearing lock-step support he once had from Democrats.
FACTOID Seven Dems helped Repubs defeat Obamba's choice for the DOJ Civil Rights Division---nom was a cheerleader for the crazies defending a cop-killer. FACTOID Dems are now lining up to defeat Obomba's gun control worshipper for Surgeon General....even w/ Harry's vaunted nuclear option.
