Landrieu: Iíll put GOP foe on defensive on health care
Washington Post ^ | April 22, 2014 | BY GREG SARGENT

Senator Mary Landrieu is one of the most vulnerable of red state Democratic incumbents, and her reelection challenges — like those of other red state Dems — are said to be all about Obamacare.

But in an interview today, Landrieu vowed to campaign aggressively against GOP foe Bill Cassidy’s opposition to the Medicaid expansion in the state, offered a spirited defense of the law — while acknowledging it has some problems — and even insisted he’d be at a “disadvantage” over the issue.

“It’s a solid law that needs improvement,” Landrieu said. “My opponent offers nothing but repeal, repeal, and repeal. And even with all the law’s setbacks, we’re seeing benefits for thousands of people in Louisiana.”

The dead are completely on Landrieu’s side on this issue. I predict that they will vote for her in large numbers.

Looks like the little Dem minions are dancing in tune to the edicts being handed down from King Obama’s camp. Shocking, just shocking.

You do that Mary....and explain what happens in 2 years when the fed’s pull the money hose from the “Medicaid expansion”.

You know perfectly well...after 3 years they expect it to be a firmly entrenched program, impossible to eliminate.

They did not count on so many states refusing to bankrupt themselves.

So by all means...campaign in support of your unconstitutional and expensive boondoggle.

He can point out her accepting Bribes to vote for Obamacare even though she had not seen it. As Pelosi infamously said "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it". And since she can be Bribed that way how else can she be Bribed. Mary Owns Obamacare and what were they thinking??

A 25% pay cut for most Americans, losing doctors, losing hospitals, and even losing your insurance... Just what were they thinking??

It's a slam dunk.

“””...Liberalism is a mental disease.....”

Yeah, and this big, fat,communist porker is a classic example.
Not only does she need to be defeated. She needs to be tried for bribery, RICO violations, and the list goes on and on.
Maybe she an Ray Nagin can be cell-mates. Birds of a feather flock together!!!
