Not so much that, as 100+ years of Dim rule has reduced most of the population to poverty.

Plus he can be a corporatist. Those hospitals and providers need the reimbursement, little as it may be. Also, do not forget Caid expansion will make it easier for corporations to dump their employees into the ObamaCare pool. Mr. Vitter just wants to be part of the main stream new normal.
